The Vancouver pride parade douche was not one of us

Published August 7th, 2014 by Bobby Henderson

This guy, Bill Whatcott,


has nothing to do with the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

We hear he crashed a Vancouver pride parade posing as a member of the Calgary Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and then passed out anti-gay leaflets.

I find it all very sad, and while I hope no one actually believed this douche represents the Church of the FSM, I wonder if there’s anything that can be done to keep him from using our name and symbols in the future.

Here’s an article talking about their antics.

    At least the article points out that he is clearly not part of the church of the FSM. The article even talks us up a bit saying that we are fun and animated at public events. All and all I would say we won this battle without lifting a finger.

    May you be touched by his nodally appendages.

    If the Flying Spaghetti Monster image is trademarked (it should be) then all you need to do is sue someone for infringement. That will draw the line for the others. Is this idiot worth a lawsuit? Not really….but perhaps he could be used to set an example.
    Corporations do this all the time because it is legally necessary to keep others from using your images and work. If you do not defend it now, you eventually loose the right to do so later when it really maters.

      I don’t see how the image of the FSM can be trademarked, anymore than the image of Jeebus, Ho Tai or Zeus can be.

    • Captain Birdseye says:

      There seems to be a confound, in that, to trademark a deity, said deity must be acknowledged as creative work. The only answer I can see is for the FSM to trademark Himself. Or, perhaps a devout Pastafarian could change their name to FSM and use libel laws. Are there no lawyers out there?

    Start a holy war! Infidel! Make a video beheading a Cheese Steak sub!

    I am from the same city as this guy, and I am a pastafarian, but I fully support gay rights. This man is a sham.

    I’m curious as to what would happen if an entrepreneur opened a series of pasta restaurants and called them, “The Flying Spaghetti Monster”. Would there be any comeback? Or would it be like somebody opening a restaurant and calling it, “The Jesus Christ Restaurant”? There could be a hell of a ding-dong court battle with the restaurant guy claiming, “The FSM is a deity who created the world and he’s had pirate missionaries since the 1700s, and therefore nobody can take away my right to name a restaurant after the deity”. This might stand up in court, but it doesn’t seem fair to the guys who set up this website. One way to deal with it would be for the restaurant guy to pay a voluntary percentage, but a voluntary fee might go unpaid. It reminds me of Sam Goldwyn who said, “A verbal contract isn’t worth the paper it’s written on”.
