Meanwhile in Canada… back in 2014 in Surrey BC a man was fighting for his rights to wear a colander on his head for his driver’s license picture. 36 year old Obi Canuel is an ordained minister for the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a religion that is often considered one of the most ridiculous in existence.
I don’t know if this guy is trying to perform some stunt in an effort to parody religious nuts or not. I don’t really give a fuck if he gets to wear the strainer on his head or not, but I think he’s put the government in a weird position because going against your religion is such a big issue in other cultures.
Really organized religions have so many followers now that people also refuse to notice how ridiculous some of their own beliefs are. In this particular religion the Flying Spaghetti Monster is considered to be the creator of all things. He supposedly created the universe after drinking heavily.
Apparently 4 countries, including the US already allow their people to wear colanders on their head in their drivers license photo if they chose to.
Do you agree that this man should have the right to wear this religious headgear while getting his license renewed?
