The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster just appointed its first 'Ministroni'
Two months ago we reported that the religious organisation, whose members worship a giant spaghetti monster (GSM) and wear colanders on their heads,had received approval to perform legal marriage ceremonies in New Zealand.

And just a few short months after that significant milestone on the CFSM's long battle for equality, another has come in the form of Karen Martyn, its inaugural minister, who's tasked with carrying out the services.

Martyn now has the power to bind church members - known as Pastafarians - together in holy matrimony.

Pastafarians often dress as pirates as they believe them created by their god. They first came to light back in 2005, when 'prophet' Bobby Henderson revealed his belief system - praising the 'Noodly One'.
