Really. S'truth. R'Amen. But no word yet if "Service at the Dock" is available. Or validation of threesomes.
WELLINGTON, New Zealand
, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, otherwise known as Pastafarians, registered their first official marriage celebrant in New Zealand
The celebrant, referred to as the Ministeroni, will travel across the country to perform wedding services free of charge. Couples will only be required to pay for her travel expenses and make a donation of between $150-$800 to the church.
