THIS is an outrage:
Employees at a Motor Vehicle Commission office in New Jersey called the police on Feb. 2, when a man claiming to be a “Pastafarian” — a follower of a parody religion called the “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster” — refused to take a pasta strainer off his head for a new license photo.
Aaron Williams, 25, told employees at the South Brunswick motor vehicle office that “his pasta strainer was a religious head covering and it was his right to wear it for his license photo,” according to a South Brunswick Police Department report newly obtained by The Smoking Gun.
Per The Smoking Gun, officers were eventually able to convince Williams to remove the strainer for his picture and reported that Williams was calm and cooperative throughout the incident.
I expect the right wing to be all up in arms over this.
