All 7 Seas (international)Pastafarian MissionariesPastafarian MissionariesFacebook Group (Long-term aspirations of community service)2015-10-20205 (2018-26-1)Cliff Hansen, cliffnhansen42@gmail.comMiguel Gravelle, miguelgravelleizaguirre@gmail.comIt's not active but: https://pastafarianmissionaries.wordpress.com/https://www.facebook.com/groups/pastafarian.missionaries/I use "Quob" when possible, others choose but I don't enforce anything.No.No.Some people in the group have strainers in their license.Several short videos, including a silent movie, a comparission between Christianity and Pastafarianism, and a few songs. Available on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCE6gpwUGiOPtHZn1-AIO6EgNot yet,but hopefully we will.Right now we are writing a series of open letters to various other Pastafarian churches and people doing good in the world. The plan is to compile them in a book similar to the writings of Paul, but from a Pastafarian perspective. The goal is to publish this and profits will go to benefit the Freedom From Religion Foundation. So, if you want a letter, shoot me an email at cliffnhansen42@gmail.com and with the FSM blessing, it may end up in our collection!

Québec (Canada)Eglise Québécoise du Monstre de Spaghettis VolantFSM Quebec ChurchChurch1542 / 2005-11-021542Jacques Cartier information@eqmsv.orghttp://www.eqmsv.org/https://www.facebook.com/EQMSV/Theoretically yes
(Freedom of worship)
Practically :
No religious tax exemption
A friend of the family can request to be a celebrant to the Ministry of Justice; But no pastafarian has yet
made the request.
No caraïban hat.
But yes for the pirate barbaresque hat
First Church listed in 1542.
Also a pastafariian woman of Quebec was denied the wearing of a caribbean bandana on her driver's license, but obtained the right to wear a pirate barbaresque scarf, And the authorities, which perfectly knew about the nature of her request, didn't dare to refuse it..
In brief, the Pastafarian barbaresque pirate scarf is considered religious there, but not the Caribbean bandana. Amazing regional particularism ?

We want to be no church.
We do weddings just like other
churches in Germany. Legally
all have no meaning.
Rarely, depending on the person who decides.
I got my piratebandana on driverlicence.
regular Noodlemass, Weddings, Baptism,
since 2011 every week "The Word on Friday", Songs,
a Pastafarian CD, Flyer, Buttons, Sticker etc.
As previously.
We have streetsings in the town our weekly noodlemass in our church, what was,
I think, the first church worldwide (as a building). We are often in the media, they report mostly friendly about us.
We are not a church, but ideological community. The theoretically equal footing with religious communities in Germany. We are fighting for equal rights in practice.
Our target is to promote scientific worldviews, particularly of evolutionary humanism. We work closely with secular organizations in Germany together. We are old and traditional Pastafarians.
That means, we are Pirates and the colander is blasphemous for us. :) Watch us and our actions on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/BruderSpaghettus

Marseille
(France.- World)
Pastafarisme MarseillaisPastafarianIsm of MarseilleChair of Pastology2009-03 Max audience / week 300 000Anti-clerical, no clergy, no Guru.
(Nevertheless the despot Yves Forban.
self-proclaimed himself there
"Great Alcoholic Oracle" of the FSM,
listened with an amused indulgence...
or not)
pasta-mars@hotmail.frStrippers Factoryhttp://pastamars.canalblog.com/1M/F & many
unknown sexes
France recognizes the
freedom of consciousness.
ALL spiritual investment is considered as an
inalienable personal right
Our marriages are treated
exactly like all other
religious marriages in
France : no matter.
(but do as they want)
No hat allowed for any
religion on driver's licenses
We have inevitably discouraged "watchers (for the Christian family model)" ("Manifs pour tous"), to continue their propaganda around Marseille.
And we developed the iconography and the apocryphal mythology of the FSM in the French-speaking area, and beyond.
Wedding Celebrations. Enthronement of a 2nd Papess in Avignon (Crinière d'Or 1st). Partial translation of the 'Loose Canon' into french.
Informal monthly meeting, wedding celebrations, Marseille is of Greek origin (older City than the Bible), who celebrated science, and as much as to talk about religion. we refer to sociology: "Every human group is secreted by the celebration of a common totem" for us, Pastafarism is indeed a religion like
any other, not because it resembles them, but because it's structurally one..
Greek means a Cited State independent of any central power, of any single exogenous thought. We are French, European, globalized when it suits us, and not when it upsets us.
Incidentally, France being at the forefront of secularism, we have extended our mystical quest into denouncing "modern" mythologies, but Pasta course : the worship of money, nationalist, political and cultural mythologies. Because when classic religions will have been marginalized (as in France), we willn't have finished with other modern mythologies, less showy because rationalized.

depending of the countriesdepending of the countriesdepending of the countriesPromotion of a Pastafarianism independent of any clerical driftCommunity gateway. Not to be confused with "European Council of Pastafarian Churches" whitch portal is "European Church of the FSM"... and which is an organization dedicated to the official recognition of the FSM by the States
We defend the anti-clericalism, where each pastafarian remains free to subscribe, or not, to Churches which claim themself to be "official" shaping the Pastafarian spirit with a view to political objectives.
Home, each current remains free not to subscribe to a single thought. Just more fun, without ostracism to those who want to get caught seriously (however humorous).

Thus, we're offering correction to all those slight details all the other religions do slightly off the true thing - and we do it in public,
as we document in our movies, to be found on our website. English subs.
Plus, we have invented the Catpa - the answer to other religions' dogma. Details on our website.
Actions are to be found in our online calendars.
Also, we have the first (and, as far as we know, only) mobile church of the FSM. Details on our website.
As far as we're talking of Europe, we're willing to discuss where to hold our services. Oh, and as far as we know, we're the first couple to have been married according to His code, in Europe - if not worldwide: Marriage took place on Sept 21th, 2013

The first meeting will be August 9, 2024 at Best Western Plus Bradenton Gateway Hotel 2215 Cortez Road W, Bradenton, FL 34207We aren't accepting any members at this time. We are just providing information right now. Our movement won't launch until August 9, 2024. We are told in Darwin's Purge 4:25 "You must keep my faith alive." We take that verse seriously. When we set the Third Pastament on August 9, 2024 we will vow to keep Pastafarianism alive through August 9, 2413. We are more serious than other Pastafarians. We have a vision. We have a goal. We have a purpose. There will always be Pastafarians willing to have fun. Our duty as Third Table Pastafarians is to make sure future generations can enjoy that fun too. Our branch won't be for everybody. We have the least amount of fun and we are ok with that as long as our efforts allow others to enjoy the fun Pastafarianism has to offer.
