Christopher Schaeffer, a Pastafarian minister, was recently sworn into the Pomfret, N.Y. Town Council wearing a colander on his head. Schaeffer is a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster which was founded by an atheist in 2005. The symbol of the church is the spaghetti strainer.
Bobby Henderson, the founder of the church, blogged that Scchaeffer's swear-in "may be the first openly Pastafarian sworn into office."
