Hi, my name is Gary, i'm an Irish Pastafarian and i've noticed the obvious dominance of the catholic church, and the blatant discrimination by the government regarding everyone else.
my school has a morning prayer on the intercom, 2 masses a year, 2 chaplains (RC and COI) and christian displays throughout the school. i'm not even going to get into what primary school is like (lets just say we study prayers and are forced to sing in a religious choir). i would like to be ordained a minister, spread the word of the flying spaghetti monster, protest instead of studying religious education in school and have a bit of fun with it. I beleive one of my first steps towards my ultimate goals (either all religions or no religion in school and of course world domination) is joining this 'ere forum and talking like a pirate occasionally. i'm sure you'll love to hear all about my antics. they're rather funny. i'll post as much as i can and will continue to read others posts.....

Mwah ;P xXxXx
nah..

rAmen,

Welcome Gary. Posting at half past midnight, and on a school night too? Well, you'll be tired in the morning, and I've no sympathy.

Only joking. I come from Glasgow, and in Glasgow we were surrounded by people who left Ireland to get away from the whole monotheistic church = state thing. My wife being one of them. Many of our American cousins will go on about the perils of an established church, but the influence of the CofE in government is nothing compared to the grip the RCC has in the Republic.

So welcome, have fun!

Not new, but returning after a five or so year break. Figured I might as well post here to reintroduce myself.

It seems quieter than I remember.

It is Holiday. On this day (or some other should you so choose) we celebrate the sacred grinding of the wheat, the loving noodling and finally the baptismal boiling of the great pasta Monster. It is often debated (or will be now) which came first, the Pasta, the Meatballs or the Marinara, but I tell you that they all came into being as one and came together to create a Monster greater in it's wholeness than the sum of it's parts. A truly amazing thing and cause for celebration and the consumption of our Monster in the form of our Monster.

Pasta Seduta, Maccaroni Azzese, Parmesan, Amen.

My first post disappeared... is that an omen? I'm actually an old convert - lost my old email address. I want my old posts back! (But I know they're lost forever - sigh...) So, hi again y'all. :fsm_float:
