Flying Spaghetti Monster Church - Marriages

Ref: Flying Spaghetti Monster church gets OK to perform marriages -

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.

The group, whose members are known for wearing colanders on their heads, won the right to perform marriages in New Zealand on Dec. 10, 2015, and registered its first celebrant on Feb. 13.

Re: Flying Spaghetti Monster Church - Marriages

As a practicing Catholic with 5 siblings and one son who are atheist or agnostics I understand that believing in the Judea Christian God is in't for everyone.

But why define yourself by mocking others. These guys don't get my respect.
If there were a perfect way, everything would be the same.

All Gods and all religion are man-made, including the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Wonder if they are franchising, it could be a way to earn while cruising.

I'm so lucky to be here in Wellington. Can finally get married under the colander.

At least the Pastafarians don't care whether you believe or not. It's not like they're going to kill you if you don't. After all, what stupid religion would do that?

Re: Flying Spaghetti Monster Church - Marriages

Surely there are forums that are not sailing related this may be appropriate in. This is not the place.

If your attitude resembles the south end of a bull heading north, it's time to turn around.
