On a story about a Pastafarian giving the Invocation before a meeting.
Nobody can prove God doesn’t exist so how can you prove an invocation is a waste of time.
You can prove Pastafarianism is a counterfeit religion and therefore a waste of government and people’s time but you can’t prove that a Christian’s invocation is a waste of time.
If you can’t prove God doesn’t exist why would you risk forfeiting His blessing.
The Pastor of Pastafarianism has no right to cause everyone else to forfeit their potential blessing to suit one individual who doesn’t even know that what he’s doing is wrong.
There are people in this world who experience epiphanies, revelations, miracles, strange coincidences, near death experiences, etc. If for them that is proof then why should someone else reject someone else’s proof?
One person does not control another person’s acceptance of evidence. People like to subject the spiritual to science but some things are just not subject to science and are unexplainable.
Too bad Mr. Pastafarian likes living too literally. He most likely lacks imagination and/or really doesn’t like other people or he could have figured this all out for himself.
Why should people pander to someone deliberately insulting them and forfeit their own right to a blessing?
Christians are usually in the majority. We respect minority rights but nothing says we have to give our own rights away especially if they affect our well being and future benefits.
