Pastafarianism is a religion that demands from its followers the worship of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or FSM. The FSM is an omnipotent deity, its existence being not dependant on the belief from the churchgoers. As in all religions, some members may gradually abandon the path of the faith and became nonbelievers, which produce the rejection from true followers who call them satirists, heretics and even dirty pirates. Nevertheless, this belief system requires a strict love of beer from all Pastafarians.
It is easy for people to join this church since it doesn’t request any kind of conversion ritual usually demanded to become a follower in other churches; the only thing that they must have is the desire to join the Pastafarian creed.
