Polish court ruling allows Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to register as official religion
A Polish court overturned a previous ruling Tuesday and will allow the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to register as an official religion.
A court in Warsaw rejected a ruling by the Regional Administrative Court because it had not granted Pastafarians the required two-month extension for submitting outstanding documents.
The church parodies orthodox religion and opposes the teaching of anti-scientific beliefs such as creationism in schools.
The group’s website insists it’s a genuine religion, and public officials and citizens have read invocations or been sworn in as Pastafarians.
Church members celebrated the Polish ruling by shouting “pasta” outside the court.
