Quote
A woman in the Netherlands may go to the European Court of Human Rights after the Council of State, the highest court in the country, told her on Wednesday that she is not allowed to wear a colander on her head in her passport and driving license photos and that Pastafarianism is not a religion.

Citizens in the Netherlands are allowed to have their heads partially covered for identity photos for religious reasons, but Meinke de Wilde was told that the Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster is a satire rather than a legitimate religion.

Before going to the Netherlands' highest court, De Wilde was denied a driving license and identity card two years ago when she was wearing a colander in her photos. She took the case to a court in the Municipality of Nijmegen in 2017, arguing that the headwear was being worn for the same reasons that members of other religions wear headscarves or turbans, but the judge ruled against her.

The religion was first created in 2005 and includes a god made up of spaghetti and two meatballs that serve as eyes. A mass that mimics the Catholic Church’s traditions takes place in Brandenburg, Germany every week, where the bread is replaced with noodles and beer takes the place of wine.
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.

I pray every day that America is already bottomed out.

Would a bar be justified in denying her service ?

Claiming that she is not recognizable unless wearing that "hat"?
