Today in Weird

By Brad

To many in Sweden, file-sharing — legal or illegal — is serious business. Case in point: A new group of “pirates” who banded together to start a religion. Via TorrentFreak:

Founded by 19-year-old philosophy student, Isaac Gerson, this brand new church believes that copying and the sharing of information is the most beautiful thing in the world. To have your information copied is a token of appreciation, say the church, a sure sign that people think you have done something good.

For those thinking this is some kind of late April Fool’s joke, think again.

So far the church’s attempts to be recognized by the Swedish government as an official religion have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been denied.
