The Templin Pastafarians are Fighting the State of Brandenburg

Published April 8th, 2016 by Bobby Henderson

Our friend Brother Spaghettus is fighting for the right to keep Pastafarian signs up.

In Brandenburg, Germany, churches are allowed to post signs advertising their gatherings. But after the Templin Church of FSM put up signs advertising Noodle Mass, the local government said the signs must come down, because Pastafarians clubs are not a legitimate religious community.

Now Brother Spaghettus and his crew are taking the fight to court.

I think it’s great, and expect a successful outcome. If nothing else, it will be interesting to see the arguments for allowing Protestant and Catholic churches to advertise their meetings but not the Church of FSM. It will be hard for the bureaucrats to devise a test of religious legitimacy that keeps us out. We’ll see!

Huge thanks again to our friend Brother Spaghettus for all of his excellent work. Such a great ambassador for all of us Pastafarians — and he really looks the part, too.

    Avast!

    The heavenly meatballs are moving into alignment and British Columbia will soon have a formally recognized CFSM as a registered society under the Provincial Societies Act.

    A nice feature to this site would be enhanced search-ability. When making comments under different topics, it would be nice to scan through them more efficiently. Notifications, like in FB, would be great as well…arrrgggh!

    We german Pastafarians have quite a struggle of getting noticed as the real thing… Brother Spaghettus is a big inspiration and I really hope his struggles will change peoples views. Especially as religious equality is one of the most personal rights over here. German bureaucracy is really a pain in the ass they state that we are not a religion anyways so we have to try to make them realise we are a one “world view community”…
    To me thats only term-erism and discrimination.
    Keep on all the good work fellow Pirates!

    Aaaarg and Cheers
