I totally understand and appreciate your commitment to "diversity and inclusion"! Too many times I have suffered discrimination in the professional environment due to my own religious beliefs. As a Pastafarian, I am obligated to adorn my body with various things throughout the year in accordance with our established holidays and celebrations. I have been a member of the Church of FSM (Flying Spaghetti Monsterism) for several years now and some places of employment have been more understanding than others. For instance, in mid December we have a holiday that we refer to as "holiday" and during said holiday it is customary to wear a huge bowl of spaghetti on top of your head and carry a garlic bread stick in every pocket. The bowl of spaghetti on the head is a symbol that our god (the invisible Flying Spaghetti Monster) is constantly looking down and watching our every move and listening to us even when we mumble or whisper. The garlic bread stick in every pocket is a symbol that in order to receive good favor in our society today and have ample influence over people and events around you, you need to have some bread (money). As mentioned earlier, my religion is one of the most discriminated against religions in the world. Most people refuse to even admit we exist. :-(
An employer from my past once asked me if I would mind taking off my huge hat helmet that was full to the brim with 3 gallons of cooked spaghetti and marinara sauce, and I replied, "It's not about whether or not I mind, it's about me taking this thing off and then the invisible Flying Spaghetti Monster raining down meatballs all over the entire production floor! You don't want that now DO YOU?" The supervisor shot me a strange look and I retorted "Look, if you don't believe what I believe, that is fine, but don't expect me to go to hell with you just because the long noodle appendage of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has never touched your soul and selected you as one of the few chosen to enter the kingdom of heaven!" The supervisor finally backed off, which is good because I was really close to calling him bigot. I have come to far with my faith to simple abandon it for something as silly as "protecting the public at large from contaminated food products and possible injury/death". If the Flying Spaghetti Monster wills it, then so shall it be. Thank you for fighting the good fight over there and protecting everyone's rights!
In his name we pray, RAMEN
