Pastafarian suspended from school for wearing distinctive garb of his religion:
A student has been suspended from school in America for coming to class dressed as a pirate.
But the disciplinary action has provoked controversy — because the student says that the ban violates his rights, as the pirate costume is part of his religion.
Bryan Killian says that he follows the Pastafarian religion, and that as a crucial part of his faith, he must wear 'full pirate regalia' as prescribed in the holy texts of Pastafarianism.
