Berlin Pastafarians find publicity

Published August 25th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

Pastafarian Dylan found this article published in the Berlin Kurier. Amazing!

Here’s a translation:

Spaghetti Monster, Have Mercy

Pastafarians celebrate their fun religion in pasta masses

Friedrichshain (place): They say that they believe in the power of the internet, beer and stripper factories and that a Flying Spaghetti Monster created the Earth. Millions of Pastafarians worldwide worship their god. In Berlin and Brandenburg almost 500 young people perform a pilgrimage regularly to pasta masses.

The community in pirate costumes stand with a set expression in the living room, say a civil “Our Monster” open their mouth to receive spaghetti and beer from their priest. 10 minutes later the religious speech is over, the three youths hungrily eat bolognese in silence. A typical evening watching television begins. Have these lads got pasta on the brain?

Brother Spaghetti alias Rainer Weida (57) explains “we want to use our mostly public masses to criticise every form of religion.” In East German times the teacher complained already about the “misuse of faith by the Church to hold power”. His club modelled on that of spoof prophet Bobby Henderson, who campaigns in Kansas against the free churches, has 20 members in Berlin and in the whole of Germany 500,000. The goal “is to make sects and fanatics think through pasta.”

(Captions)

First the mass, then the evening meal. The community enjoys their favourite meal – two meatballs with spaghetti.

Priest Captain Nodus alias musician Wolf Weida (35) divides the spaghetti offering between the young people.

NIH supports FSM

Published July 14th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

I spotted the FSM on the main page of PubMed. For those non-scientists out there, this is basically an index/repository of all biological knowledge and medical research. It’s run by the National Institutes on Health (NIH).

Where no Christians dare to go

Published May 3rd, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

Hi Bobby………I initially searched for ‘go where no Christians dare to go’ and your site came up. Very radical, original, spiritual and I think Jesus would like your individuality and lack of concern of what others think of you (especially cookie cutter Christians) Keep going the way very few others dare go. I like your zeal, your fervor and tenacious radical, rebellious spirit in which will be the channel of many accomplishments transpiring.

[Thank you very much, Bridgette! Welcome to FSM, please stick around for a while. --bobby]

Rolling Stone

Published April 26th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

rollstoncover.jpg

Rolling Stone has featured the Flying Spaghetti Monster in its latest issue – the one with Keith Richards and Mick Jagger on the cover – the April 17, 2008 issue, pictured to the right. Check out page 39.

RS has a huge circulation; who knows how many converts we gained. It’s cool to see the mainstream media picking up on the fastest growing religion in the world.

The article – Investigating Bush – is about Rep. Henry Waxman, Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. More or less, he’s the guy calling out the Bush Administration on their bullshit. I could not be more pleased that the FSM was included – I have a lot of respect for Rep. Waxman, as I imagine many Pastafarians do.

I’ve included a couple scans. Click to enlarge.

The FSM is placed furthest to the left on the “with us – against us” scale. That is awesome.

This is the second time that the FSM has been featured in Rolling Stone. The first was in the November 3, 2005 issue. Hoobastank vocalist Doug Robb was wearing an FSM shirt. He also thanked the the FSM on their last album’s cover-art.

Last week I had a near death experience

Last week I had a near death experience, I felt so weak like I was going away for good, I saw all my life passing through my eyes, but suddenly a glimpse of something very real and very warm took me back to the world, it was the vision of the Great Master The FSM, I have no doubts that He’s out there and He loves each one of us in the same way. We got to show our love to Him. In this way the world will start to be a better place.

As a moderate Christian pastor

Published January 24th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

As a moderate Christian pastor, I’m afraid I can’t join your religion, but I certainly appreciate its goals. Let it be known that not all Christians are goober-heads and some do believe in more of a live and let live philosophy. I figure that if all religions kind of kept it to “Love God (as you understand God), love your neighbor, and share what you have,” we’d all be better off. Any way, thanks to the FSM prophet for the peace offering.

I have seen the light

Published January 13th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

I have seen the light- oh yes, I have found a home, My love and I shall someday sleep so soundly covered in his glorious noodley apendages, til We awaken on our mountain.To the sound of flowing beer. How Great thy be, oh, Flying Spaghetti monster, for making birds fly, and all we mortal humans to not fall off the earth by holding down on all our heads, in such a kind way that mere mortal scientists mistake, as a silly theory ,they call gravity.If it be thy will, I shall thow myself off this cliff, as I have the faith in you, that you shall, for that moment not push on my sinfull head and I shall fly. No, great Fying Spaghetti Monster. I forgot, It is written. Thy shall not test the great Flying Spagegetti monster. To do so Would make a mortal guilty of the sin of Flip-Flopping. A sin punnishable by loosing elections, or at least making voting machines be tampered by Your evil Darkside counterparts…. The unnamed, lacking of humour and soul. RAmen.

Love to you all- You know who you are.

this is going to sound kinda christian

Published January 5th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

ok this is going to sound kinda christian but i think it’ll be alright. i just want to say how much pastafarianism has improved my life. i was down in the dumps thinking that life in general just sucked. then i saw a book. a book called the gospel of the flying spaghetti monster. it was like this big wet noodle had just came down and slapped me across the face. i had found religion. i mean a beer volcano and a striper factory what more could anyone ask for. i any event i wish to thank all of you who prove that if i’m crazy i ain’t the only one. and i want to thank the FSM for all he does or doesn’t do b/c thats just how he is.

As an agnostic Buddhist

Published December 25th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

As an agnostic Buddhist, I have to say there is not one speck of the FSM religious belief system that I find troublesome if it is to be taught in public schools alongside intelligent design. The FSM system of beliefs makes perfect sense to me (I recently realized I have many daily rituals that follow the Pastafarian scripture, as I have always loved pirates, strippers, and beer, and do enjoy a good marinara. I have no problem with my son being taught the divine nature of these things), and even though Buddhism certainly won’t be taught in southern US schools, I whole heartedly support the FSM theory be taught along side of intelligent design.

Our children must see both the noodle and the meatball in order to find their way. You certainly shouldn’t study ID without FSM. I also would like to suggest that teachers who are to speak the words of the gospel should do so in a respectable way, by dressing as either the pope, a priest or nun while teaching ID (out of respect of course) and then to dress as a pirate while teaching FSM theory as not to offend the Pastafarians. When speaking any words of the gospel of the FSM, they should of course do that in pirate-speak, to do so any other way, would be offensive.

Of course when discussing global warming in science class, both the scientific theory presented by Al Gore in “An Inconvenient Truth”, AND the MP (missing pirate) theory of global warming should be taught side by side as well (if there is equally compelling evidence in the ID texts that there is an alternate theory specifically directed at global warming in ID, that should of course be allowed equal time).
