Atheist Wins Right to Wear
Religious Pasta Strainer" in ID
Austrian atheist Niko Ahn supports the Church of the Fig" g _ ti
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
aooc, to make a point about his faiths sanctity compared to others, Aim
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, so Aim, a Spaghetti Monster "pastafarian," argued
that a colander is his "religious headgear."
This week, after avoiding Aim for three years and even making him
submit to a psychiatric examination, the Austrian government caved.
Aim now has a valid Austrian drivers license, complete with colander.
