Atheist Wins Right to Wear
Religious Pasta Strainer" in ID
Austrian atheist Niko Alm supports the Church of the FIE" g Spaghetti
Monster, a joke religion conjured up by atheists who say their make-
believe stories are no better or worse than any traditional church' s. In
to make a point about his faith' s sanctity compared to others, Alm
asked to wear a pasta strainer on his head for his driver' s license photo.
Austrian citizens are only allowed to wear headgear in state IDs for
religious purposes, , a Spaghetti Monster "pastafarian," argued
that a colander is his "religious headgear."
This week, after avoiding Alm for three years and even making him
submit to a psychiatric examination, the Austrian government caved.
Alm now has a valid Austrian drive rs license, complete with colander.
Score one for the freethinkers. Now who will be the first to try this on in
