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.”


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.
