The Church of Kopimism
Today I found this article:

File Sharing "Church of Kopimism" Becomes Officially Recognized in Sweden.

The Church of Kopimism has been registered as a religious organization by the Swedish governmental agency Kammarkollegiet, it said on Wednesday.

For the Church of Kopimism, information is holy and copying is a sacrament, it said in a statement, and adds that information holds a value, in itself and
in what it contains, and the value multiplies through copying. Therefore, copying is central for the organization and its members.

Interesting. If this idea works I can see many others "religious" organizations appearing everywhere...

Yes,but it majorly focuses on opposing/mocking anti-piracy acts instead of religion.

The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism.

Yeah, I saw this in a discussion on richarddawkins.net and was pretty surprised. The definition of religion is pretty elastic, I suppose. It reminds me of Druids becoming recognized in the UK as an official religion back in 2010. You never know what belief will become popular.

At least this religion is grounded in fact rather than faith.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.
