Hey, the Mormons join people to their church after they're dead.

Other sects may do it differently but not only Mormons claims deathbed conversions.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Mormons baptize dead people. They're special.

Because of the tremendous power the Norwegian church has politically. We have a democracy and they have so few voting for them, that they get what we call "equalizing mandates"

The popular vote would give them only 2 seats in parliament, therefore they get at least get 5 seats more (for loosing the election).
When parliament is divided 45 - 55, "Democracy's curse*" has a field day!

When we amended our constitution and separated the church from state they managed, as a part of the bargain to include in the constitution that our values are based upon our christian heritage. (Christening Norway by the sword, burning witches, executing blasphemers and heretics . Also, our monarch must be a christian!).

I beg your pardon for the rant, but it sure feels goodSmile

The writing will be on the wall for them soon. All this useless expenditure in favour of an institution without popular support - people will get pissed off soon, especially with the ridiculousness of including *any* religion in the funding scheme. Would be fun to see what would happen if someone registered the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
