Letters to Mohallah
I don’t know who you think you are, but what you are doing is wrong. People shouldn’t be allowed to just make up some stupid religion and then act like its a real religion. I am trying to get people to boycott your dumb ass religion and all of the other stupid made up religions too.
I’m really sorry that you feel the way that you do. You sound like a bright guy, so I hope that you are able to overcome your angry feelings one day, and that you will see the Church of the Holy Meatball for what it is – a real religion that is as serious and real as any other religion in the world.
Dear “Mohallah” (or whoever you are)
Is your name really Mohallah? To me it seems like using the name “Mohallah” is just some tricky way to make fun of Muslim beliefs. Please change the name you are using if it is just to poke fun at people.
Yes, Mohallah is my real name. I’m not sure why you think it might be offensive. Is it because it sounds a bit like the names Mohamed and Allah mixed together? I guess it does, but that has nothing to do with me. I have no idea why my parents chose that name.
Even though I do not believe that Islam is a legitimate religion, I don’t want to go out of my way to offend Muslims. I respect their religion, just as I feel certain that Muslims will respect the Church of the Holy Meatball. Everybody is entitled to their beliefs and all religions are equal in the eyes of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Thanks for asking!
Don’t you think that the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster already made the same point that you are trying to make? Don’t get me wrong. I think that your Church of the Holy Meatball is totally cool, and I even made it my religion of Facebook. But I do think that it is somewhat redundant.
Dear Mr. Fluxus,
Maybe you are right. I don’t know for sure, but I guess that time will tell. Thanks for spreading the word on Facebook though!
Everything about the Church of the Holy Meatball appeals to me and I would like to become a member. However, I am vegan and I find the Church’s emphasis on meat and meatballs to be a bit offensive. I’m not sure that I could be true to my vegan lifestyle and still be a member of the church.
Is it OK to be a vegan member of the Church?
This is the Word of Johnny Spaghetti (BbHm), “…the Flying Spaghetti Monster so loved the world, that he gave one of his only begotten Meatballs, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have meat everlasting.” (Johnny Spaghetti: 2:6)
Meat is the holiest sacrament of the Church, so refusing to eat it is disrespectful to the Holy Meatball, and to the Blessed Memory of Johnny Spaghetti. However, the Holy Meatball is supremely merciful, and will accept you as you are, provided that you partake of a symbolic sacrament by eating vegetable based meatballs.
