Massachusetts Let This Lady Wear A Spaghetti Strainer On Her Head In Her License Picture For Her ‘Religion’

A Massachusetts woman just took a giant pasta-induced dump into a loophole that is the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles.

According to CBS Boston, Lindsay Miller legally won the right to wear a spaghetti strainer on her head for her driver’s license photo. Mass. does not permit hats in license photos unless the head covering is for religious or medical reasons.


So how did Miller coerce the Registry to wear a colander on her head? Because she’s a Pastafarian, a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. For real.

The Church is a satirical religion who mocks traditional religions by recognizing the existence of a flying spaghetti monster who “just as probable as the existence of the Christian God.” The Pastafarianism website claims: “We are not anti-religion, we are anti-crazy nonsense done in the name of religion. There is a difference.”

With the help of an attorney from the American Humanist Association, Miller was granted the show of ‘faith’ after originally being rejected by the RMV.

Miller told CBS Boston:

“As a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I feel delighted that my Pastafarianism has been respected by the Massachusetts RMV.

While I don’t think the government can involve itself in matters of religion, I do hope this decision encourages my fellow Pastafarian Atheists to come out and express themselves as I have.”


Chalk this up to a win for the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
