I need to research the founder of this church more to see if this is more to mock the legal side-steppings of conventional churches or to validate the free share of information and emphasize personal privacy in the cyber world. I imagine it's both, but I do like the idea.
If the mythology and folklore of ancient peoples justifies tax breaks and special treatment under the law, why shouldn't the sincere belief in the potentials of modern technology and science be eligible for the same considerations?
Is it religion? No. But, maybe it's the only way to get such considerations; by fighting fire (burning bushes and eternal hellfire) with firewalls.
