Austrian atheist Niko Alm supports the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (http://www.venganza.org/), a joke religion conjured up by atheists who say their make-believe stories are no better or worse than any traditional church's. In 2008, to make a point about his faith's sanctity compared to others, Alm asked to wear a pasta strainer on his head for his driver's license photo. Austrian citizens are only allowed to wear headgear in state IDs for religious purposes, so Alm, a Spaghetti Monster "pastafarian," argued that a colander is his "religious headgear."
This week, after avoiding Alm for three years and even making him submit to a psychiatric examination, the Austrian government caved. Alm now has a valid Austrian drivers license, complete with colander.
Score one for the freethinkers. Now who will be the first to try this on in America?

i read this article a few days ago n i think its good because religious people should have no more rights then non reliigious (being allowed to wear hats in i.d or certain places)

if so anybody should be able to do it. simple as that

He should thoroughly complain if he isn't allowed to wear that during sports competitions. Maybe even sit out in protest.
