Should religious people be allowed to wear their religious accessories?

Pastafarianism (a parody of religion) is not atheism. Obviously.

The difference is that those people actually believe something and have built successful civilizations based on their beliefs. A jackass with a strainer on his head is just that.

Geo, you need to chill out. Your intolerance is showing. Some people find your religion just as silly as you find Pastafarianism. This was more of a dig against the Muslims and the hijab or Hindus with their turbans anyway. Unknot your knickers.

A jackass with a Bible in his hand is just that, too.

I say we remove the right for any religion to not pay taxes and sue them for wasting the resources of land and materials for building their places of worship, tax free.

No. One is a deeply held belief. I do not make fun of Christians, Muslims, Hindus, etc... or even atheists. I accept that they honestly believe what they do and whether I agree or not, I do not mock them. This is shear mockery which is in no way helpful to anyone.

But it does help people, Geo. Firstly, it brings a smile to the lips of those who are not funny-bone challenged. A laugh and a joke are good for everyone occasionally. Secondly, it highlights the absurdity of some of the customs and rituals associated with some religious beliefs. You are asking that those religious beliefs be respected just because they are deeply held. Some of us don't think that way. Respect has to be earned and when we see some of the other outcomes associated with deeply held beliefs (eg. discrimination against gays) we don't have a lot of the automatic respect which the religious always took for granted. You should probably get used to this, because attitudes are changing. The Catholic Church is now openly mocked after the endless pedophile scandals in almost every country in the world. Religion has been tarnished and will be held to account. Many of us think this change is well overdue.

Pastafarianism is not atheism. Pastafarianism is a parody of religion intended to show the ridiculousness that many see in it.

Just because someone wants one of their viewpoints to be recognized, that does not make it a religion. A good example of this is nationalism. People parade their flags and national symbols, trying to make a difference in the minds of others; yet it is not a religion.

Before you pass judgement upon the Pastafarians, it would be good of you to explain why these other religions are more feasible.

Mockery is a very useful thing to society. It helps us to see when we are being ridiculous. Rather then criticizing the Pastafarians purely on the basis that they are mocking people, provide evidence that their mockery is not warranted, and that their parody has no basis.
