Austrian Atheist wins 3-year fight to wear pasta strainer as hat in driver's license photo; claimed to be Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster 'Pastafarian'

Now, NPR says he claims to be an athiest.
"The Republic of Austria is still very closely attached, is trying to serve religion and churches without any apparent need," Alm said. "And that's just another thing I pointed out... that something is going wrong here that there is a part of the population that can exert certain special rights that people like me, that atheist people or non-believers cannot have."
Niko Alm's driver's license.

Alm says he is an atheist. He was baptized Roman Catholic but he was never a believer...
     He claims to be an advocate "for the clean separation of church and state" — and wants freedom from religion.
     "There shouldn't be any special rights for anybody because of their religious belief or non-belief," he said.
