Spaghetti monster goes to Germany’s Constitutional Court

The highest court in Germany may soon have to consider whether the mock church should be treated as an “ideological community,” which could allow them to claim rights similar to traditional religious groups.

“We believe that a satirical religion should have the same rights as other religions,” chairman of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Rüdiger Weida, on Monday. Weida also goes by his church name, Brother Spaghettus.
