Sweden: 2012 marked the approval of the Church of Kopimism as an official religion. Ever since, the movement attracted thousands of enthusiasts and believers from across the world; two of them decided to be united in marriage by this church.
In a world where file-sharing has become one of the most popular internet activities, it was only natural for someone to think of making it a rather serious matter. That person is Isaac Gerson – the philosophy student that started the Church of Kopimism on Sweden soil, but he probably didn’t expect to have that much success in such a short time. In the past few months, the newly found spiritual belief has spread from US to Estonia. The church’s followers believe that file-sharing is sacred and should not be restricted or constrained by any laws.
But a church is not complete without its first wedding; as such, a stage hosted the once in a lifetime event where a Romanian woman and her half an Italian man said “Yes”.
The Church of Kopimism was happy to spread the news and said:
“We are very happy today. Love is all about sharing. A married couple shares everything with each other.”
Just like any matrimony, a Kopimism marriage is following strict rules: the church allows the couple to share their love with others, as long those others don’t steal it. However, the most important rule is “to copy and remix” themselves.
“Hopefully, they will copy and remix some DNA-cells and create a new human being. That is the spirit of Kopimism. Feel the love and share that information. Copy all of its holiness.”
With that said, we wish the newlywed couple a happy and full life together.
