Massachusetts OKs woman’s anti-Christian license

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 11.37.09 AMYes, free speech. I get it. But when a state government institution changes its policy to legally allow one person to hatefully mock a people group, it is the picture of a world turned completely upside down:

BOSTON (November 15, 2015) — A member of the “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster” is being allowed to wear a colander in her driver’s license picture.

WFXT reported that Lindsay Miller was originally denied the right to wear the colander in the picture, but won the appeal.

Miller enlisted the help of attorney with the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center.

Miller claims she is a Pastafarian, also known as a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

“As a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I feel delighted that my Pastafarianism has been respected by the Massachusetts RMV,” Miller said. “While I don’t think the government can involve itself in matters of religion, I do hope this decision encourages my fellow Pastafarian Atheists to come out and express themselves as I have.”

Pastafarian is a social movement that promotes a light-hearted view of religion and opposes the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools.

    I don’t see this as mocking Christianity. I see it as an immature adult acting very childish in order to get her way. She needs to grow up emotionally.

      I can see the reaction from the cop that pulls her over next time. He’ll automatically think her crazy and she’ll probably have to have a breathalyzer. It’ll be her own darn fault. And I agree John, the immaturity shows itself greatly.

    The pasta strainer on a head is just silly. Not the first person around the world either to get permission to have this on in an ID photo. The Pastafarians and their writings certainly mock Christianity and are very blasphemous in places.

    Pastafarian – yet another overschooled but undereducated American who is convinced that truth is unknowable and therefore mocks and despises anyone who claims otherwise. A true zombie. May the Lord open this woman’s eyes. We know the end of the path she’s on.
