"It's just a statement about religious freedom," Schaeffer told the Observer. "It's a religion without any dogma."

The HELL YOU SAY! Nobody is taking away my stripper factory and beer volcano!

Religion aside, I can see that photo in a high school textbook describing our gubamint, 500 years from now in our Idiocracy-like future.

I always wondered where strippers came from. Was pretty sure they didn't grow on trees, but still...

We should ban politicians who openly belong to made-up religions.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: We should ban politicians who openly belong to made-up religions.


The question is: who decides which religions are made-up?

This. I've been Mormon, Wiccan, Pagan, now atheist UU. If you're gonna go for a made-up religion, at least make it a good one!

/Pastafarian definitely qualifies as a good one

So, athiests only?  Or are you really liberal and open to agnostics?

OTOH, that was quite a hipster little display of attention w***ing.

I know this guy. He's really a great person. He didn't state that he was agnostic, atheist or theist. Only that he opposed the dogma of established religion. Shouldn't we all be? And what's wrong with that? Isn't this why we have separation of church and state?

Right, because no atheist would make an ass of themselves by spouting pseudo-religious dogma. I mean I've been told again and again on here that ALL atheists believe in science and ALL atheists are hardcore rationalists and basically that ALL atheists have exactly the same values as some random white, middle-class North Americans.

Odd. Whye would you even listen to people like that, let alone cite them as authorities on some school of thought or other?

The older I get the more I can't stand this bullshiat. Is that called maturity? There is a difference between disagreeing with religion and showing childish contempt for it. This is pretty clearly the latter. This is foolish, nothing else, you can see it on the face of the woman swearing him in "Is this what I have to farking do today? Serve this moron?" I legitimately think this shows contempt for the courts as well, and as such he shouldn't be sworn in.

"Some people will see it as obnoxious or a sign that he's not taking the oath of office seriously,"
Yup, pretty much.

And as for religion without dogma? I find pastafarians dogmatically moronic. Try to have one serious, adult, informed conversation about, say, hinduism, or sikhism with an avowed pastafarian. Try. They are just athiests who instead of being passive or militant or flighty went full retard.

You think worshipping pasta is odd? Look at the Christians. They wear ancient execution devices around their necks to worship an imaginary guy who was executed per Roman law related to brigandage, highway robbery and treason. That shows a distinct lack of maturity and sanity.

the megachurches have been really ramping up the 'christians are persecuted' talk again lately.  I get a sense that they're building up to a big easter show this year.  maybe this is their lead in for the 2014 congressional mid term elections?

In what way is Pastafarianism more weird or disrespectful than, say, Mormonism or Catholicism? Because I seriously don't see it.

Uniformed? I am not a soldier. Unless you think I am uninformed since I do not blindly accept your religious fairy tales as fact. And crucifixion was the punishment for crimes against the state, such as treason and brigandage.

I'm curious what you mean by "the genuine article". So it includes Mormonism, does it also include Scientology, Wicca, or the Greek gods?
