Pastafarian gets to wear strainer on head in license photo

In this Nov. 12, 2015 photo provided by Darrick Fauvel, Lindsay Miller of Lowell, Mass., wears a spaghetti strainer to reflect her religious beliefs while holding her temporary driver license that also bears a photo of her wearing the colander. Miller said she “absolutely loves the history and the story” of pastafarians, who are part of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles initially forbade Miller to wear the colander in the identification photo. She said the agency reversed the decision and apologized.

BOSTON — 

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is apparently real, after a Massachusetts woman is being permitted to wear her colander head wear in her driver's license photo.

Lindsay Miller said she "absolutely loves the history and the story" of Pastafarians, The Associated Press reported.

She said wearing the colander allows her to express her beliefs like other religions.

The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles only allows head coverings or hats for religious reasons, the AP reported.

In August, Miller said she was denied a renewed driver's license because she wore the strainer, The Boston Globe reported.

She filed an appeal and was eventually granted the right to wear the colander in the official photo, the Globe reported. 

Pastafarians claim they have existed in secrecy for hundreds of years, according to the group's website.

If you think about it, it's just as crazy as any of the other religious head coverings.
