Just discovered the glory that is The Flying Spaghetti Monster and the sacred faith thereof. Fortunately, my own personal faith is flexible enough to be inclusive of a wide range and number of divinities, so I find no theological reasons why I cannot embrace this new religion I've just discovered as well. I just hope that the great FSM is not a particularly jealous God, as I have quite enough wrathful deities hurling damnation and worse at my head as is!
Immediately started spreading the faith here at the office and with the students in our library. While most are skeptical, at first, I'm sure that many hearts may be won over for the FSM, with time and patience.
One of my co-workers raised a disturbing question, which hopefully has been addressed elsewhere already. "Does the divine FSM favor marinara sauce, or alfredo?" I do hope this isn't the sort of question that creates schisms. I mean, it's awfully early in the game for FSMism to already be spawning heretics and rival sects!
I'm not sure about the law elsewhere, but here in West Virginia--all it takes to legally start and register a "Church" is a congregation of three believers and a legally ordained minister or other religious authority-type.
I am legally ordained through the Universal Life Church--silly but still legal--and will offer service to any that require it. yup. no problemo.
