spreading the Word in Iraq

Published December 23rd, 2006 by Bobby Henderson
Oh, wise prophet,
I, James of the family Duck would like to enlighten you of the plight faced by the soldiers, civilians, Iraqis and pirates in his noodly appendages cradle of civilization.  Currently the United States Army provides a vast and diverse Chaplains Corp to fulfill the spiritual needs of its hard pressed soldiers.  However at the more remote sites, the Chaplains visit when they can about once a month and distribute literature and religious supplements like crosses, Korans and rosaries.
Unfortunately there are no Pastafarian Chaplains for those touched by His Greatness.  We believe that His Noodlyness deserves equal time along side those theories that harness the power of the printed letter and printer ink.  Even without resources one lone Pastafarian has spread the word to the willing and now over 10% ( 3.27 people) of our installation have been touched.  The local Pastafarians lack the proper eye-patches, swords, hook hands and frilly pirate clothes to properly speak to others who may also seek the truth in these ancient lands.  I propose that if we had official looking papers with letters on them bound into a 192 page “Gospel” to stack proudly next to our mountain of more commonly available books more passers by (which we get quite a lot) could take interest in the Truth that is Flying Spaghetti Monster.
We where wondering, oh wise one, if you could help us out in our plight to spread the word by sending eye patches, hook hands and if possible big pirate hats and a number of copies of The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster .  We here do not have the expendable resources to print out pamphlets, posters or charts showing how global warming is afflicting the pirate population and feel a couple copies of The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster will enforce equal time.
Thank You for listening to our plea,
SPC Duck, James and fellow Pastafarians

P.S.  If you would like to help us out please email me back so I can give you our address.  We really want to take pictures of us in Iraq with FSM propaganda and we think the Iraqi Army guys here with us would love it too!  We also think that a picture of an American and an Iraqi coming together under His Noodly Appendage would be a great message of world peace.  Of course we will try our best not to just jump one of the Iraqi Army guys here and snap a shot off, we will do our best to inform him so he is totally aware of the decision he is making to put his face on the Internet and what it is for. These guys risk their lives just working here.

P.P.S. Also I saw a US civilian contractor with a “Do you believe?” shirt on a month or two back.  Did not get to talk to her, but let it be known the truth is out there.  Even if nothing comes of all this, THANK YOU for providing us with such awesome entertainment.  I does get people thinking.

Santa Vs. the Flying Spaghetti Monster

Published December 23rd, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

A Holiday cartoon – I wish I knew who created this.

after centuries of battling Jesus for supremacy over
Christmas, Santa Claus has finally emerged victorious.
Enraged by Flying Spaghetti Monster’s growing popularity,
Santa decides to terminate this growing trend. After learning
of his nemesis’s presence on the North Pole, Santa plans his
attack that will determine once and for all who will rule
supreme over the holiday that is Christmas!

Holiday music

Published December 23rd, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

A friend and I even wrote some special holiday carols for a recent party. We all wore pirate eye patches. It would have warmed your heart (not the earth). I’ll attach a few samples of the sheet music so you can have a look. We’ve got more if you want them, and feel free to share with the FSM community!

Pastafarian regards, Deborah Walling

nice mural

Published December 15th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

Dear Mr. Henderson–

I have a picture enclosed a picture of a large mural that myself and a fellow pastafarian put up on the ceiling of our school to help spread the good news. I also suggest that fellow Pastafarian Zach Heesche be agknowledged for his martyrdom to his great noodlyness. He was all but destroyed by the librarians after printing it out. I am happy to say that for a small South Dakota high school, I was very impressed with the response i got from the other students. In the last 24 hours I have officially recruited 38.  After making a “Facebook” group I was surprised to see even more interest.

RAmen–

festive Holiday lights

Published December 15th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

fsm_christmas_ornament-m-00.jpg

Mark Pile of BSAlert.com created this FSM light display:

fsm_christmas_lights01.jpg fsm_christmas_lights02.jpg

We tried him out in front of the house tonight. Only two cops showed
up. Tomorrow I’m going to put this guy way up high in the air off
the roof. It should be quite amusing… His eyes blink green and
red… He’s about six feet wide and was made with 63 feet of
lightrope, 140 christmas lights, two spools of heavy wire and a tond
of cable ties.

Mark has created a tutorial showing how he created this display on his site. Here’s the link.

Thanks, Mark – Nice work.

*Update* this was boingboing’d here

happy Holiday season everyone

Published December 1st, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

Happy Holidays!

A Holiday message from me:

It’s that time of year again. Many will be celebrating Christmas, some Hanukkah, some Kwanzaa, whatever. Pastafarians will be celebrating our holiday, named “Holiday“. And it’s not a specific date so much as it is the Holiday season, itself.

I hate to go into specifics as to what and how Pastafarians celebrate/worship. The rituals and ceremonies are not important. What is important is that Pastafarians reject dogma and formalism (the emphasis on form over content). So, there are no specific, handed-down-from-above sort of specific rituals or ceremonies. Pastafarianism is more of a state of mind than a set of rules to follow. So enjoy the Holiday season, and celebrate it in a way that is pleasing to you and those around you.

That said, I would like to point out how much Pastafarianism has spread in a remarkably short amount of time. A few years ago, you’d be wished a “Merry Christmas” by everyone. Now, by our schools, businesses, goverment, on tv – everywhere – what do you hear? We’re not offered the Christian greeting “Merry Christmas“, but instead a happy “Holiday” season. Holiday, is of course OUR Pastafarian holiday, and it’s amazing to see how it’s been accepted, embraced even, by so many people.

Consider this: the Washington Post reports that a few people are upset with the White House “Christmas” cards, because they fail to mention Christmas. Instead, and not surprisingly based on President Bush’s presumed closet-Pastafarianism, the 1.4 million recipients of the White House “Christmas” card are wished a happy “Holiday season”. Say what you will about our president, but to send a Pastafarian propaganda message to over a Million people, in defiance of the Christian Evangelists who are supposedly his base – that took a huge set. I was so Touched that I took the time to write Mr. Bush a note. Click to read it, if you want.

So, that’s all. Have a safe and happy Holiday season. Remember that Flying Spaghetti Monster merchandise is not only fashionable, but also serves as propaganda.
