Official Clergy Recognition Certificates

Postby Rev. Daniel Scott on Sat Nov 02, 2013 8:35 pm

Would there be any interest in having an official unofficial certificate recognizing a clergy?

Here's a sample of what the certificate would look like:

Image


Due to our flimsy standards as a Church, one must remember that these are strictly officially unofficial. If you want, however, to parade around telling everybody it's official, I'm not going to stop you.


BUT I believe that a few standards should be met before a certificate is granted:

  • The church name must include some legitimate area (whether you want this to be your city, county, street, state, whatever)
    Note: This does not mean I want your address. Suppose you included your street name, well how the heck do I know where this is. Your privacy doesn't go down the drain.
  • The name should have something to do with the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Pastafarianism, or some kind of CotFSM-related term
  • Cannot be blatantly profane
    Note: This doesn't mean I don't think you can have a naughty acronym. I just don't want the name itself saying something distasteful.
  • By submitting a request for a certificate, you affirm that at least one person (perhaps this person is you) in the given area considers himself/herself/zirself/itself to be a Pastafarian

If you want to submit a request, just reply on here with a church name and the following statement "I hereby affirm that at least one person in the area specified in the submitted congregational name considers himself/herself to be a Pastafarian."


What do people think? Questions? Comments? Concerns? Interest?

Don't we already have the official ordination cetrificates? (Definition of "clergy" being "people (such as priests) who are the leaders of a religion and who perform religious services" (source: Marriam-Webster dictionary).

As such, the official certificate of ordination should be sufficient to qualify you as "clergy".

As for recognising specific locations as Pastafarian churches/ temples/ etc, I'm reminded of the 6th IRRYD:

6. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Build Multimillion-Dollar Churches/Temples/Mosques/Shrines To My Noodly Goodness When The Money Could Be Better Spent (Take Your Pick):
Ending Poverty
Curing Diseases
Living In Peace, Loving With Passion, And Lowering The Cost Of Cable
I Might be a Complex-Carbohydrate Omniscient Being, But I Enjoy The Simple Things In Life. I Ought To Know. I AM the Creator.


Okay - so I'm guessing you're thinking of cheaper venues rather than Multimillion Dollar ones, but, to my mind, the spirit of this is basically saying no church buildings (other than Bobby's Pirate ship)

Holy Ramen noodles, Batman! What is with trying to stop everything, CF?

I mean if you're to re-read it again, you might see that Rev. Scott. Is willing to do this on his own free time, for anyone who wants one. FOR FREE.(I still want one and I will tell you in the Next Post.)

I mean you've stopped(along with other People) #1: a Pastafarian "ancient" language, #2:2 forms of Pastafarian religious governance, A] Bicameral Pastafarian government, that morphed into a talk for a B] religious Pastafarian government. and a #3: Straight up POPE call for the Pastafari church. in the last year.

It would have been cool to have a Pastafarian "ancient" language. It would have been cool to have a piece of paper saying that "you" are a vice adm... etc. etc. even if it had no meaning. (why do I say this Because I want a Name change, but I do not think Cap or WoE or anyone else would want to do that right now because I sided with someone who was witchhuntedoutofhere i mean gotten rid off for "spam." it need time to cool down.)

the reason why I want the #2B part was to have a system in place to help and try to make people say and make a conversation. but nope.

So in the end I do NOT want a fight and In my next post I would like the Rev. to take what I want to be made into an official unofficial certificate for me please just to have FUN.

F is for Friends who do stuff together.
U is for You and me.
N is for Anywhere and anytime at all. Down here in the deep blue sea!


so can we put the IRRYD aside for now and have a Little fun.
Please, CF.

Thank you and may the pasta be with you

I'm sorry - when the good Rev. Scott asked for "What do people think? Questions? Comments? Concerns? Interest?" - I assumed it meant just that - asking for opinions and views, which is what I gave. I'm sorry if you don't agree with me - but that is the virtue of the Pastafarian religion, that as it is fairly easy-going and has loose moral standards, a plurality of views is not only accepted but welcomed.

And BTW where did I stop or even object to #1: a Pastafarian "ancient" language? I have no views either way on the subject - hence the lack of me posting in that thread. As to the others (Pastafarian popes, governments etc) - yes we disagree. Surely though that is the point of having these threads - so everyone can discuss it, and give their views, and maybe even come to a consensus. I personally don't this we need heirarchies and the like - there's enough of that in the rest of world. But that's just my view. Feel free to disagree with me - in fact I'd go so far as to say I welcome it.

And lastly, with regards to the IRRYD's. I choose to keep them when I can, and as they were revealed to Bobby Henderson by His Noodliness, I don't think they should easily be put aside - but saying that, given the whole "loose moral standards" tenet, if others want to put them asaide, that's fine as well. All is good.

Dechujoh, here's your officially unofficial certificate:

CF, about the IRRYD: To have a parish or congregation or local church, you need only have a place to congregate and worship. This could very well be a small shrine in one's home. There is no breaking of the IRRYDs inherent in this. Heck, there doesn't even need to be a shrine. You could gather around a dinner table or in a living room and read from the Loose Canon or the Gospel.
