comment Is there any biblical support for copyright law?
@Flimzy I think there is nothing people aren't able to do in open, including fundraising so it's really a question of time there will be open spacecraft or anything. But actually my arguments was not about replacing of closed works with open one, but about existing and living economical model of open intellectual works. It's possible to do business with opensource!

comment Is breaking copyright law a sin?
@DantheMan my friend, it's not a stealing, can you make a difference of stealing a car, money, wife etc and stealing a song, game, film? Stealing isn't a right term, as for me. It's rather releasing content from a poor greedy mind it was produced by :)

comment Is there any biblical support for copyright law?
@Marc this all was about correctness of copyright law actually, not about stealing something, and the answer was pretty on topic, since I was asking about Bible background. Talking about information and a basic of it - a simply word, you may consider, and it's not a pun, that in the beginning was a Word, and who we are to trade a gifts of our Heaven Father? The work is something done once and paid once otherwise it's gambling or begging. You may consider praising and spreading the word of God is a duty of most Christians, same way as attending a church, and the same way it is neglected.

@TRiG yes, copyright law may assist to protect information from change, but to change a mesage is rather lie than a stealing. Using copyright law for this purpose reminds me a joke about using microscope to hammer in nails. Except that microscope is actually a good thing.

@JoelCoehoorn, thanks Joel, but it's really a matter of terms. I think, example with a book isn't much right, since medium and content are completely differ stuff. Thank you anyway, I hope there will be more in the scope of question ;)

@MarcGravell copyleft concept exists and grows up for many years. Many artists are sharing their works for free. There is an open science and design - so, this model works. Human heart is something more complex then any economical model, but isn't there something we have to radically change in our hearts to gain a Kingdome of our Heaven Father? Then, why we have to be afraid to change our contracts (lawfully of course)?

comment How should Christians participate in a democracy?
@MarcGravell: still, if it's about Christians, I'm agree with Caleb here that "so far as the civil laws of a country do not cause us to violate the moral and other obligations we have to our maker, we are submit to them."

@MarcGravell: talking about religious minorities in Europe, are they happen to be Christians? Otherwise ref to Romans makes no sense at all.

comment How should Christians participate in a democracy?
@JamesBlack Actually, question was far away from this. In my opinion, faith is above all, and Christian politician will have to ban homosexual "marriages", otherwise he will be a hypocrite. We need to show love and compassion to homosexuals, instead of tempt them, by allowing sin in law of countries.

@JamesBlack is divorce a sin? It depends. While any food became permitted, homosexuality stays forbidden.
