With regards to tax rights, yeah, we don't have a religious income at this time - however, it is drawing attention to the issue that other religions are getting benefits that other groups don't.
I sent my license off a while back - I haven't heard back yet! I suspect it's being held over and debated, either that, or they're punishing me by letting it expire, lol!

Toulson describes religion as "a spiritual or non-secular belief system, held by a group of adherents, which claims to explain mankind's place in the universe and relationship with the infinite ... "
“Unless there is some compelling contextual reason for holding otherwise, religion should not be confined to religions which recognise a supreme deity,” said Lord Toulson, delivering the lead judgement.
“First and foremost, to do so would be a form of religious discrimination unacceptable in today’s society.”
So, technically, Pastafarianism can be a religion. For me, it IS a religion.
