Ordained FSM Ministers are everywhere and our numbers are growing every day.

Published October 30th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

I’m happy to report there are now Ordained FSM ministers in 26 countries,  and most of the US states .  Quite a few of our ministers have successfully jumped the bureaucratic hurdles to receive wedding officiant licenses in their various jurisdictions.  I’ll try and make a map showing all of our locations.

I know of perhaps 8 weddings coming up that will be presided over by a Pastafarian minister in full pirate regalia.  I could not be more pleased.  

Aside from a few document requests and "is this a joke?" phone calls I received from clerk’s offices, there has been little resistance to handing licenses to perform weddings to Pastafarians.  I interpret this as approval – maybe even endorsement – from our government. FSM bless America.

Where will we go from here, and what other privileges do ordained ministers enjoy that we can get in on?  Someone told me there are special license plates available for members of the cloth.  That’s something to look into.

If you want to be ordained, here’s the link.  Price is still dirt cheap, just $20/$30 including shipping.  I think the world is better off with a huge number of FSM Ministers around.

    I am looking for a Pastafarian minister in the Olympia area. I just want to get the vows done, and sign papers. My partner and I want it as low key and easy as possible (meeting after or whenever is convenient and then moving on with life) because we don’t think too much should be wasted on it, when we can indulge in delicious pasta instead! Anyone in my area willing to oblige?

      Sasha, do you mean you are getting married, or, wishing to be ordained as a minister? Olympia in which country?

  2. Fat Bastard says:

    If marriage, congratulations; whatever country, try Yellow Pages under the several possible sections – celebrants, ministers etc…

      Welcome, Pastadamus! Are you new or did you mis-spell “Jewish”?

    Hey Sasha, if you’re looking for an ordained minister for a wedding, why not ordain one of your friends?

    Just wondering does the Loose Cannon have marriage ceremony language? I want to get married in the Medford, Oregon area and am having trouble finding someone in this bible belt. I am thinking to ask someone to get credentials but I worry that this person may not be willing to due to the responsibility of the verbiage necessary.

      Talya, have a look at some of the Pastafarian wedding ceremonies on YouTube and note the form and words used by the Ministeroni. If your Ministeroni is blind drunk, it’s sure to work out fine.
