Except the Spaghetti Monster is not irony.  It's the same old Christian shit of, "Oh, those pagans don't really believe that.  They're just rebelling."  But those who have felt the Monster know differently, and everyone of them should be given a free parking lot, and a tax write off.  Because that judge can't prove the Monster isn't real.  So there!

Courts will eventually declare religions to be without rights.  The logic of history requires it.
