Like File Sharing? It’s Now A Religion

Do you guys remember when being a Jedi was considered a religion? Is it still considered a religion? I don’t know. Anyways, another religion has popped up based on file sharing. Like to pirate files? There’s a religion for that! The religion is called the Missionary Church of Kopimism. The religion has only just been approved by the Swedish government, with explaining their prayer and meditation as the final hoop the church had to jump through.

The founder of the church is a student of philosophy (go figure) by the name of Isak Gerson. File sharing has been quite a controversial but with the recognition of this religion by Sweden, it gives the people who do like file sharing a sort of unity. Copyright infringement is still illegal so they are technically bound by the rules.

    I don’t get why this would be a religion but hey, can’t argue with a religion that promotes “Sharing is Caring”
