Pastafarians are being persecuted

Pastafarians are being persecuted
The head of Russia’s Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Mikhail Iosilevich, has been arrested. His computers, phones, and passport have been seized, and access to his bank accounts have been blocked.

Mikhail has been charged with working with a democratic opposition group, Open Russia, that was outlawed by Putin’s government. He is being investigated for allegedly hosting lectures for independent election monitors, held at the premises of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, last month.

A number of “witnesses to these activities” have been targeted for investigation by the State. They have been questioned, and have had their homes searched.

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Is this satire or is this serious?

Putin is a dictator, so this wouldn't surprise me, but FSM is a satire of religion.

Fake religion?! But how can early pastafarians live a life of persecution and even martyrdom for something that is just a myth? It is obvious that they are assured that FSM really existed and boiled for their sins.

Today, the rival religion The Holy Nuddleism broke off from the FSM.

THN takes it seriously as well. This is a step in the right direction of interfaith recognition for both our faiths in the divinity of the Holy Pastaverse.
