Pirate Religion Opposed by the Catholics

If you still remember the Sweden’s latest official religion, which is called the Missionary Church of Kopimism, you might be interested in the way the things are with the religion right now. This church, advocating peer-to-peer piracy, has recently been attacked by the Roman Catholic Church. The accusations are that the Missionary Church of Kopimism is farcical.

According to Bishop Peter Ingham, head of the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong in Australia, the religion in question was actually a send up of religion, that of copyright and of the government to register such a group as religious. He insisted that the religion should be measured somehow, and if it has nothing to do with God, it's just a sham. In other words, the new trend looks like just a way of bypassing the law of piracy and copyright. Indeed, how could a religion promote unauthorized activity?

In response, the file-sharers pointed out that it is more ironic that someone living in a place named Wollongong, disbelieving in having sex, wearing a dress, and believing his boss is infallible labels any religion as farcical. Actually, in Sweden anyone is able to create a religion if the group is organized and the actual content of a religion isn’t examined.

Despite the fact that the Missionary Church of Kopimism doesn’t have any requirements for its congregation to violate the law, Pirate Party founder Rick Falkvinge explained that if the group saw file-sharing as a religious act and the Church ran its own servers, then the group could be seen by the authorities as a religious confession. In its turn, it means that the police and authorities can’t listen in on them. Moreover - a priest can even go to jail for inadvertently disclosing something said under the privileged conversation of confession.
