Melbourne counter-demonstration: Muslims and Pastafarians Vs. Atheists

Published June 11th, 2012 by Bobby Henderson

During lunch break on Sunday April 15th  at the Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne, a group of 20 or so courageous Muslim extremists gathered in front of the convention center filled with 4000 Atheist unbelievers. They were quickly joined by two Pastafarians and shoulder to shoulder they demonstrated against those ignorant Atheists who do not understand Creation nor fear God. Islam and Flying Spaghetti Monsterism have the same core beliefs in common; we believe (and truly know) that the universe and all living beings were created by a deity and a Prophet spoke in His name. We just have different opinions about  the name of that god and Prophet and also treat our wenches slightly differently. Apart from that, Islam and Pastafarianism: Same struggle!

In the attached pictures you will see the Muslims demonstrating in full Islamic regalia together with Pastafarians in colander head gear holding up the Gospel and a fresh pack of Spaghetti. On the windows in the background you might see the reflection of a Pirate Ship. Coincidence??

Pesto be upon all Believers,

    You can definitely see your expertise in the paintings you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. All the time follow your heart.

        Keith, that is hilarious. And I’m not just saying that out of exhaustion and too much coffee. I quoted you – hope that’s K?

        • Keith says:

          That’s fine, Epic: thank you for the compliment!

    I may not look ahead to getting mugged in the headphones subsequent to I purchase them and ‘m seen being dressed in them.

    Eventhough I was raised by muslims parents and am would still call my self a muslim even though I have broken every single rule in my religion. I think the FSM is wicked and what they are doing.

    Carry on guys!

    • ConservativePastafarian says:

      It is only fear of retribution that prevents ex-muslims from giving up that label. Education is the antidote to Allah’ swill.

    all religions make wars. why don’t we kill termites???

    Would it be a mortal sin if I had sex with some cannelloni?

    • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

      Maybe not a mortal sin, but I think I speak for all Pastafarians when I say “We’d really rather you didn’t”.

    • The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says:

      I once found some nuts in my pasta salad, was that you?

    • Keith says:

      Perhaps Brian is a disillusioned teenager who works in a fast food outlet.

    • David says:

      Your answer is to be found in Suggestions 1:1
      I am the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Thou shalt have no other monsters before Me. (Afterwards is OK; just use protection.)

  6. orecchiette says:

    Pastafarianism is the best monotheistic religion!

    • Keith says:

      I agree. It is certainly a yummy religion.

    • Pete Byrdie says:

      The only thing better would be if it were a polytheistic religion, and there could be a multitude of flying spaghetti monsters. But, that’s blasphemous. There’s only one FSM!

      • Keith says:

        Surely the FSM has holy emissaries who take on various culinary incarnations.

        • TheFewTheProudTheMarinara says:

          Like St. LeSeur, the Prince of Peas?

        • Rev. Wulff says:



        • Keith says:

          I had to look up Le Seur to find its connections with peas. While so doing, I came across a Wiki entry on a Sainthood contender by that name http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89lisabeth_Leseur I do not asume for one minute that she is associated with either peas, peace or his/her/its noodleness. The style of the article seems unctuous and unquestioning.

    As a supportive atheist, I don’t entirely agree with this sort of protest. I’m cool with most religious stuff, but a Tony Abbot-esque anti atheism protest just kind of annoys me. No offence meant in any way shape or form. Just my opinion.

    • Keith says:

      Tony Abbott would not protest. He’d just gather his cronies together and bulldoze some legislation through to make atheism illegal. He hasn’t because now that the School Chaplaincy Programme is effectively canned he and his legislative thugs will find other ways of sneaking the buy-bull in through the back door into schools.

      • SillyKiwiMan says:

        They’re nothing if not underhanded. I particularly like the irony where his plans are thwarted by the high court, and yet he plans on going ahead anyway. Much like the logging in Tassie. My concern is this: what does he have up his sleeve where he blithely figures he can carry on as planned? Who does he have in his pocket, or is he just so thick that he figures he can go ahead with whatever he wants. My personal theory is that he genuinely believes he as a divine edict to do what he’s doing.

        • Keith says:

          I think it is because he genuinely believes the Rupture is coming and he wants to save as many souls as possible: Pompous, pretentious, proselytising prick!
