"For Pastarfarianism to become a recognized faith would undermine its entire purpose. Before long people will start taking it seriously."

The last sentence of the article:
"The next step, Mr Alm told the Austrian news agency APA, is to apply to the Austrian authorities for pastafarianism to become an officially recognised faith."

For Pastarfarianism to become a recognized faith would undermine its entire purpose. Before long people will start taking it seriously.

"According to Mr Reinthaler, "the licence has been ready since October 2009 - it was not collected, that`s all there is to it"."

"The licence took three years to come through..."

"When asked for his reaction to Mr Reinthaler`s comments, Mr Alm told the broadcaster ORF: "I didn`t know I was guilty of not collecting it. That doesn`t alter the fact that it still took nearly a year [to be issued]"."


I`m not seeing any story here. He wore an odd bit of headgear, his face was fully visible and so he was allowed to get his license. He forgot to pick it up for three years.

This is the greatest triumph of religious freedom in the history of the world. Pastafarians are finally given equal rights as other, more conventional religions.
