LUBBOCK, Texas (CNN/KCBD) - A Texas Tech student says he was trying to send a message when he wore a pasta strainer for his official ID.
"I'd say the most influential point that I'm trying to make is that it teaches acceptance and it teaches a different outlook,” said Eddie Castillo, a self-proclaimed “Pastafarian.”
Castillo is a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
The name may sound a bit odd, but this religious group actually has millions of followers.
After months of fighting state officials , Castillo was allowed to wear the strainer in his DMV photo ID.
He says that this is a political and religious milestone for atheists everywhere.
