Spaghetti injunction: Pastafarianism is not a religion, Dutch court rules | World news | The Guardian
Back in January 2016, Pastafarianism was established as a legally recognized Dutch religion. I’m not sure why this happened now.

And just this weekend, New Zealand recognized the first legally-binding Pastafarian wedding, officiated by “minestroni” Karen Martyn.
