Yay! I am back as my old self! Mr. Hunter, you are a miracle worker. (Now I don't have to repost all the babbling I did previously - I can start with totally new, original babbling... ;) )

'Allo, me hearties! Me name's enoodle. I've been wanting to join a religion, but kept getting hung up on the small-mindedness and intolerance so many are so fond of.

Recently I've felt a void only other people could fill, but I didn't want to join a local church. I have nothing against them, but couldn't see myself singing the songs and nodding along to the stories I didn't believe in.

I'd heard about The Noodly One before, and thought it was really clever, a perfect rebuttal to things like creationism and divine rights. Then the other day I stumbled across vengaza.org, and had a great time reading everything, including the hate mail.

I've been blogging, and decided to write a post called "Can We Solve Religious Conflict With A Noodly Appendage?" on webshine.us, about how harmful intolerance, religious or otherwise, can be, and how the Pastafarians have an admirable code that more people should try to emulate.

I'm joining in hopes of finding other intelligent, smart-assed people to have interesting conversations with, and would love to get some feedback on my writing, good or bad.

I look forward to hearing what you think about a variety of topics, and expect to agree more than disagree.

Hello

The DVLA says almost the same thing - "You must not wear a hat or cover your head unless for medical or religious reasons" - as I'm an ordained Pastafarian minister, I have every right to wear religious headwear: I'm a pastor.

*giggles* Pastor. Pasta. Sameysamey. Heh.


I am up for it in 2017 and definitely want to honour my belief in His Noodliness ny wearing my blue colander! :)

has anybody gone through this process in the UK yet?

need info etc.

also my ordination certification as a new FSM Pastor (Pasta LOL) should be here soon to back up my case. also figured I can quote from the Gospels (esp. maybe Linguini and Piraticus?) to provide statements of faith etc...

what do you think? :lol:

Ok, apart from being polite and helpful and fixing accounts, what have the admins ever done for us? :idiot:

Welcome, new people, and welcome back IspywithmeI. Ignore daftbeaker, please, he isn't usually this bad. At the weekends, when he's been drinking, he's almost sociable.

Yes folks, as you can see, Venganza is a haven of intellectual dialogue and mutual respect. I am even insulted on the basis of my tragic Kaled heritage, by a lab-coated penguin with different-sized legs. He probably would have left by now, but he walks in circles because of the wonky legs, so we're stuck with him.
