Meet Lindsay Miller of Lowell, Massachusetts. Lindsay is a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and decided to stand up for her religious beliefs against its most egregious violator: the Massachusetts BMV.
Way to fight the good fight, Lindsay.
A Massachusetts agency is letting a woman who belongs to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster wear a colander on her head in her driver’s license photo after she cited her religious beliefs. Lowell resident Lindsay Miller says wearing the spaghetti strainer allows her to express her beliefs, like other religions are allowed to do.
A spokesman for the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles says policy does not permit head coverings or hats on license photos, but exceptions are made for religious reasons. (H/T – TXNick)
I wonder if Lindsay’s religion believes eating pasta is blasphemous? Are meatballs considered patron saints? Does she bless herself with holy tomato sauce? Inquiring minds want to know.
Come to think of it, hockey is my religion, so I demand to wear this for my next diver’s license photo.
