How could they do that to the Spaghetti Monster church? Have. They. No. Decency?!  First they came for the Spaghetti Monster worshipers, and no one said anything.  Then, they came for the baconists, and they were the only ones left.  Lesson?  If you want to continue to worship  bacon freely, support the Spaghetti Monster church.

A German court has ruled that local authorities are entitled to prevent a group calling itself the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster from advertising its “noodle Masses” at the entrance to an eastern town.

It’s standard practice in Germany for small signs at the entrance to towns to announce there’s a Lutheran or Catholic church and detail when it holds services. The “Spaghetti Monster” group, an organization that criticizes religion as intolerant, wanted permission to do the same in Templin, northeast of Berlin.

News agency dpa reported that the Brandenburg state court ruled Wednesday the group can’t claim the rights of a religious or philosophical community. Judges said its criticism of others’ beliefs doesn’t constitute a philosophy.


The group says that it’s a humanist organization and plans to appeal.
