Flying Spaghetti Monster

avb3 shut down the Flying Spaghetti Monster thread because (he said) it was not appropriate for a sailing forum. It's in the off topic forum, where else is it supposed to be?
Maybe we should start a forum restricted to members with a sense of humor? Or, if you want to be serious, a forum which does not discriminate against any religion, be it Buddhist, Jewish, Scientologist, or Pastafarian. Oh yeah, or Christian.

Been nice being here lol.

Re: Flying Spaghetti Monster

The Flying Spaghetti Monster is one of the major entries for sailors. I feel it may be because the lines and rigging make the Monster feel we are family.

Seems sailing related to me!

Re: Flying Spaghetti Monster

I'm an ordained minister in The Church of Dude, otherwise known as Dudeism.

"Come join the slowest-growing religion in the world – Dudeism. An ancient philosophy that preaches non-preachiness, practices as little as possible, and above all, uh…lost my train of thought there. Anyway, if you’d like to find peace on earth and goodwill, man, we’ll help you get started. Right after a little nap."

Re: Flying Spaghetti Monster

How odd. I know for a fact that there have been multiple threads about church attendance while cruising, and ways to stay connected to someone's congregation. Why the idea of a non-christian thread in the same vein would be shut down so soon I have no idea. It can't be that some moderator was showing their bigotry?

As an ordained minister in the church of the Fonz (we had a schism with Dudeism over the Fonz as the preeminent Dude) I find this double standard troubling.

Re: Flying Spaghetti Monster

Twas surely a short fuse on that closure. Didn't understand why it happened. The No Fun Club wins again, or is it just control freaks?
