FSM PODCAST 007: Interview with Obi Canuel

obi

I had an opportunity to talk to Obi Canuel, a Canadian ordained minister in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster a few days ago, and it was a very enlightening conversation.

Obi, following in the footsteps of Pastafarians around the world wanted to have his drivers license photo taken with his pasta strainer upon his head, and as a result, ultimately was denied. He has been using public transport since October of 2014, and continues his battle for religious freedom.

In the interview, we chat about his candidacy for Surrey city  council, his experiences as a Pastafarian minister, and the individuals right to express religious expression even when authority oversteps its bounds.
