Pastafarians to be allowed school prayer in Oklahoma?

Postby Cardinal Fang » Wed Mar 08, 2017 4:54 pm

Under the guise of protecting "voluntary religious expression in the classroom", a Bill (SB 450) before the Oklahoma legislature would allow students to claim a right to proselytise to fellow classmates during class, and schools would have to allow students to deliver morning announcements and introduce varsity football games and any other school function "from a religious viewpoint".

Although it appears that this is a none too subtle way to force Christian public prayer back in to public schools, we should embrace the opportunity for what it is - a law that would also allow Pastafarian students to lead prayers in schools, and to preach about His Noodliness in class.

I would suggest that people start writing to Oklahoma state senators endorsing the law from a Pastafarian point of view (please explicitly mention how great you feel to have a law that supports and protects people with different faiths other than Christianity being allowed to lead public prayers, and preaching to fellow students). Likewise please write to or email the newspapers and news agencies in Oklahoma state giving the Pastafarian view of this law.

Of course. This is publicly available information.
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")
-- Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805)
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

*groan* . . . I really need to find a better way to do blast e-mails.
I'll get to work . . .

Hey wait a minute . . . NO! This can't pass!
The bill only allows 3 people to do such things- the captain of the varsity football team, class president, and the president of the student council!
The Pastafarian population is very outspoken by the Christian population, and apparently Oklahoma is no exception. The bill would only allow the majority's voice to be heard. Write instead to demand that this bill be shot down!
PULL!

Of course. And if you know anyone of other religions - Satanists, for example, please feel free to encourage them to support the proposal as well, as they'll also have the right to preach in class rooms.

They can preach in classrooms, but they can't do everything else. The minority religions (such as ourselves) will be largely underrepresented.
