I think why it's been put in the "Humor" section is because when an average person looks at it, they probably think "Why are these idiots worshipping my mom's cooking and not a REAL god?" and also I think that most of these people believe in the Christian faith. (which is kind of confusing because it has other sub-religions such as Catholic and Mormon)
What many of people don't relize is that many other people don't just get their beliefs because they want to by choice, they do it because they were probably exposed to this their entire lives. and take the words of others to help make them feel that they are on the "right road to salvation" and it makes them feel comfortable and more secure. Many of these people also only want people to believe in what they believe in because they think their religion is the only one that is right. Well think about it, if you have people coming from many types of religions into one place and voted who's was right, you would have individual answers saying that theirs is right. This has been an issue for thousands of years. Beliefs have caused many conflicts, battles, and wars and it is still as much of an issue than it has ever been for centuries such as the Jews and Arabs. But enough is said about that.
I believe that if people were more aware that Pastafarism is an actual religion and it should be spread out worldwide that this is NOT a college prank as it is claimed to be. BUT a belief that a flying spaghetti monster created everything and pirates are sole believers of this unique and misunderstood religion. And if this is a joke to believers of other religions, that is just like saying that THEIR religion is wrong to!
P.S. This whole thing was something well thought through from my mind as i was typing. And if this made you insulted and/or upset, I can't help with that so you might as well just sit there and pout like a 4 year old. May The Flying Spaghetti Monster's noodly appendage touch us Pastafarians everywhere! and RAmen!
