Here’s a new propaganda flyer courtesy of designer Ritchie:
I am writing about the official church stance of homosexual marriage (i.e. none). I am concerned that this stance is in direct contradiction with the will of the FSM. You see, I received a vision from the FSM this evening while (as is often the case) I was cooking a grilled cheese sandwich.
During his appearance he told me that homosexuals are gay because He has touched them with his noodley appendage. This is the reason that “experts” have had so much difficulty pinpointing what makes someone gay. And since gays and lesbians have been chosen by Him, to deny them the right to get married is an abomination in His eyes (meatballs). Of course many have argued that no major religion has ever accepted homosexuality. It should obvious to any FSM follower that the real reason homosexuals are shunned from mainstream religion is because of blatant prejudice towards those who have been touched by Him. A bigotry that I know many of my fellow Pastafarians have experienced first hand.
I am especially concerned because of the state of gay rights movement today. Too often gay activists argue that should be given the right to marry because of court precedent that says marriage is their “right as a human being” or essential to the “dignity ” of a relationship. Then they rely on the 14th amendment to say that they deserve “equal protection under the laws” and that under constitution gay people are “equal to” straight people.
Well I think to time to put these arguments to rest. Gay Pastafarians should sue because not allowing gay marriage is a violation of their first amendment rights since it is commanded by the FSM as relayed to me in my vision. Of course He works in mysterious ways and we may never why He commands that gays get married. But there is no question that He does.
Now if I know my fellow Pastafarians, you want proof. Attached is a photo of the grilled sandwich I was cooking when He appeared to me. I think it speaks for itself. I hope that it is satisfactory proof to convince everyone that we should amend the CotFSM’s stance on gay marriage to supporting it. Only then can gay Pastafarians demand true religious freedom and marry as the FSM intended.
May you all be touched by his noodley appendage,
I would love to know who is the owner of this beautiful display. Well done. Decorator, please let me know who you are so you can get some credit on your handiwork.
At a make your own ornament xmas party.
I hope my FSMas lights are a sufficient praise enough.
I think you did an great job and passers-by and the FSM Himself will be happy with your works. Well done, sir.
Any other FSMas light displays out there? Please send me your photos, we would all love to see them.
A few people asked for the creation drawing at the very bottom of the website to be available as a shirt, before xmas. It is now available at the FSM Store on both light and dark shirts and looks pretty good. Be warned though: people seem to get offended by this drawing. The cheapest one is $13.99.
My daughter and I decided to make some FSM cupcakes to distribute to fellow Pastafarians in the neighborhood. We knew that His Noodly Goodness approved of our work when that night we pulled out a very unusually shaped noodle from our box of spaghetti.
In the fall of 2008 some biology grad students and faculty took up the beautiful game of soccer as a team way of bringing co-workers together….but what to name their team? Only the Flying Spaghetti Monsters would do! Since then the "FSM Montreal" has grown in leaps and bounds!! For some leagues popularity has been so much that FSM has put in 2 teams!! The team has members in Chemistry and Physics and now includes players from both McGill and Concordia University as well as friends not affiliated with either University!! We even have our own website: https://sites.google.com/site/fsmmontreal/
FSM Montreal has since won the CMSS Winter co-ed 7×7 soccer league, the CMSS Fall 11×11 Soccer league and were named the most social team of CMSS in 2008…this is because the league mistook the team’s paying homage to the Flying Spaghetti Monster and his beer volcano by drinking at the local pub after games with trying to be social!
Here are some pictures of the Flying Spaghetti Monsters sporting their FSM Jerseys!!
