Religion/s and god/s

Note: This idea has been combined with Separation of Church and State, see here: https://constitutionuk.com/category/view#/post/79739

 

Religion/faith and god/s and any of their unelected, unaccountable power/s should  not be protected in the constitution, as they are very undemocratic, discriminatory, very oppressive, restrictive and not accountable in court.

Or

Atheists & humanists should have the EQUAL rights as religious people and their god/s. (Please ensure that EQUALITY is FOR EVERYONE whether people are religious or not, god or no god)

People have rights, religion/faith/god don't. The so call god/s is almighty and powerful, if so, god/s can take care of him/herself and does not need protection from our human constitution.

Hi Cecilia,

Yes.

While I agree with the sentiment, the wording could be regarded as contentious. Perhaps something along the lines of:

People of all faiths and no faith shall have equal rights and faith organisations shall have np specia position within governement or society as a whole.

I'm sure this can be improved on.

"People of all faiths and no faith shall have equal rights and faith organisations shall have no special position within governement or society as a whole."

I agree with that.
