SIDEBAR - Moorish society America

Posted: Updated:

In 2011, the Moorish Science Temple of America was in the news after group officials denounced a rise in "paperwork terrorists" or individuals accused of filing flim-flam legal documents that were not associated with the group. Society officials said the filings had nothing to do with their faith or its teachings.

What is the The Moorish Science Temple of America? The society is an American religious organization founded in the early 20th century, which teaches and focuses on the naturalization and proper identification of descendants of 'Asiatic Moors' or Moroccans in North America.

What is the sovereign citizen movement? Sovereign citizens generally believe that they're not subject to taxes, they're not citizens of the United States, they cannot be tried for most crimes, and they generally don't have to comply with most laws.
