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.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster and God by Robert Barron

This guy just simply gets it wrong. He discounts the Flying Spaghetti Monster as a God in a Genus, not the creator of earth. Forget that he attributes the origin of FSM to Richard Dawkins, not Bobby Henderson. Forget that he likens Pastafarians to atheists. Forget that he intentionally uses Latin to confuse his audience.

The important thing to remember, is that followers of FSM HAVE EVIDENCE that the world was created by his noodliness our lord after a night of drinking too much, but he can’t even prove that his god exists by his own admission!
