Finally A Wedding Ceremony For Your Pasta-Loving BFF
I remember when I was 4 years old, my parents asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up, and I told them that I wanted to be macaroni and cheese. And can you really blame me? Kids are undoubtedly more honest than adults, and kids love pasta. Even the picky eaters – hell, I loved pasta more than I loved my own brother growing up. No joke.
For people like me, traditional religion has never been easy. How do I reconcile my unshakeable devotion to gluten with a belief in a ubiquitous, all-knowing spiritual deity? The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster came along and wiped that problem right off my plate.
The members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, who call themselves “Pastafarians,” maintain a practice that believes the existences of a god made of spaghetti and meatballs is just as likely as the existence of other gods.
Last year, the church notably gained a lot of privilege and recognition when several countries around the world granted the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster legal status as a religious group.
But now, the whole game has changed — in New Zealand, Pastafarians have won the right to perform marriage ceremonies within their church, and this means a whole new level of linguini lovin’ for the church’s devotees.
You can bet that they’re not throwing rice at these weddings!
