Pushing the rules on religious headgear .

Down on the farm, Jason will not allow drivers to wear baseball caps. If one of his drivers was a Sikh, then that driver would be allowed to wear his turban for religious reasons and Jason could do nothing about it. This made me wonder if baseball caps could be adopted as Atheist headgear.

An Austrian atheist has won the right to be shown on his driving-licence photo wearing a pasta strainer as "religious headgear". Niko Alm first applied for the licence three years ago after reading that headgear was allowed in official pictures only for confessional reasons.

Mr Alm said the sieve was a requirement of his religion, pastafarianism. A self-confessed atheist, Mr Alm says he belongs to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a light-hearted, US-based faith whose members call themselves pastafarians.

I do not like pasta but I am an Atheist and I do like wearing a baseball cap whilst driving. I wonder...the Church of Bio Yogurts?
