Oklahoma Pastafarian Promotes Religious Pluralism
Sometimes you have to fight tooth and nail to get your state to recognize that unbelievers have the same rights as believers. Sometimes, though, you can just walk into the DMV and ask nicely, as Shawna Hammond did earlier today, here in Oklahoma.

Here is how she described the process:
I went in and told them I needed to renew my license. Then I asked if I could wear my religious headwear. He said yes as long as there’s no writing or logos. I said it didn’t and I went and got my colander.
The lady taking my picture giggled and asked what religion and I told her. She looked shocked lol then asked if there was a group here in *****. I said we’re all over the world.
I cannot believe this actually worked. May her example embolden everyone else who feels that wearing goofy headgear is a universal human right that should not be restricted to theists who sincerely believe that a transcendent cosmic super-being deeply cares about our silly hats.
