The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster

                                                              "He boiled for your sins"

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is a religion that is based around the belief of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It is one that has its status often disputed by those who call it a 'Mock Religion' although members reject this claim.

I have chosen this religion to define itself in the American character as it is a Religion that in a way criticises other religions for their rejection of certain people because of their beliefs or finances.

Under the title ' Join us ' It explains that the church does not ask for any money ( Possibly a swipe at the Church of Scientology) Or to preform any spiritual retreat or ritual to be one with God. It also states that you can be a member and not believe in everything that the Church offers. Where other churches in America have been famous in shunning individuals for disagreeing with certain aspects of the religion, such as in Tennessee.

To me the Religion offers values of togetherness and diversity which is one of the fundamental ideas behind the United States of America. They have been known go to picket demonstrations spreading hate and picket them by stating that all are welcome within the Church.
