Polish Pastafarians Determined to be Recognized

Polish Pastafarians are serious about registering the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but have met with resistance.

“Most religions were persecuted at the beginning of their existence,” the COTFSM reflected.
The COTFSM is prepared to appeal to Poland's Supreme Administrative Court (NSA), and “if there are further problems, we declare that we will bring a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.” 

One of the administrators of the Polish wing of the COTFSM is Armand Ryfinski, a member of the liberal, anti-clerical Palikot's Movement, currently the third largest party in Poland's lower house of parliament.
