If Scientology, another "religion" based on a science fiction book, was in a similar position, they would sue the pants off of everyone and win. I'm not saying I believe Jediism, Haruhism, or the Church of Oprah; I agree with his sentiment that smaller religions should have fair treatment.

That's fine for now, but in 10 years when we've advanced Wavelength-division multiplexing to be able to supply 1TB/s to the home and 1PB/s as the Telco backbone, this new wireless probably won't cut it.

It is a sad truth that the fastest connections will always come from a physical medium.
