Because religion should not matter (too much)

Sweden

File Sharing Church recognised in Sweden

KopimismAt last the Gods of file sharing have had their religion officially recognised.  The Church of Kopimism, has been registered as an official religion by Kammarkollegiet, a Swedish governmental agency, making Sweden the first country to recognise the religion. Their roots are in file copying and the belief that everything should be free. As it states on the church website, in this religion, information is holy and copying it is a sacrament. Information holds a value and the value multiplies through copying. They reckon that having the religion recognised will help end their religious persecution, when people try to prevent them carrying out the holy sacrament of file copying. If you feel a calling to worship information, they organise kopyactings, religious services where information is copied and remixed. Currently the group have a few thousand followers, but this is likely to grow following the news of their official recognition. Go forth and Multiply,  Copy and Seed.
