The head of the Reformed Pastafarian church has the title Amalek and his council of advisers are known as the Amalekites. On a spiritual level we have a heritage that stretches back for almost 3,000 years. We started out as a tribe in the middle east and used fight with our neighbours.
However the modern Amalekites are pacifists and don’t seek confrontation with anyone. In particular we have utmost admiration for the Jewish people and their many achievements. We recognise the state of Israel and encourage everyone to respect its sovereignty.
We are aware that there has been some serious discord in the past and we offer a full and unreserved apology for all offences carried out in our name and by our members, in particular, but not exclusively, in the fourth century BC.
Modern Amalekites preach tolerance, respect for all religions and peace.
Sadly, it has come to our attention, that a tiny fanatical minority like to read books which encourage people to kill us and our children. There is no place in a civilised country for tomes that claim that some supernatural being would ask people to: go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey
So our request to the public, both faithful Pastafarians and others, is that if you ever see a book which encourages horrible acts against us Amalekites, please report it to us and indeed to the relevant authorities.
We firmly believe that when there is a respect for diversity we can all get along. There is no need for violence or hatred. However, we need to be vigilant, not just watching out for vile acts but also alert to the danger posed by those who distribute material encouraging ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. We should not tolerate publications which encourage the killing of innocent men, women and children, whether they be Amalekites or indeed anyone else.
