Or perhaps an inverse question- What religions need to be separated from Laws?? or maybe a rewrite of Laws in general?? perhaps a rewrite of Human Culture in general…..... How could we do any of that?
Well as long as we have current democratic egalitarian constitutional governmental structures those persons who embrace supernatural patriarchal based authoritative beliefs will always be able to out vote those of us who embrace our lives as being part and product of a Natural Existence that is a closed system. ‘Closed system being all that there is is part and product of Natural Forces….........
How can secularists wrestle the vote from those who deny their Natural Existence here on Earth as their only existence and based on supernatural spirit based birth? An answer lies in the idea of ‘Citizenship’ or being a citizen - in this case a citizen of Earth and our Earthly Natural Existence.
Let me use Christianity as an example tho in general this can be applied to any philosophy that one embraces that denies ones Natural Existence as a part & product of the forces of Nature vs spiritualism/supernaturalism.
Now I’ve always had a problem with some abstract invention of the Human Mind (i.e. a political structure like the United States of America or any political institution on the globe; or God the Father, etc) claiming ownership of me from the moment I exit the womb! A foreigner can choose to become a citizen of the USA for example but that choice is denied me because of geographical location of my birth?! The USA automatically claims that I am a citizen along with anyone else born within its political boundaries.
Instead, I think a government based on a Value of our Natural Existence - a secular government - should have varying degrees of ‘Citizenship’. And that only when, for example, a person reaches a certain age of adulthood they can be invited to choose to join such a secular state as a citizen acknowledging their Earthly existence. As a part of this acknowledgement they may perhaps be invited eventually to enjoy Full Citizenship having a voting privilege.
If they choose to embrace some supernatural realm as their definition of existence - in essence denying their Earthly existence; in essence denying their Natural Existence; in reality denying their Existence as a Citizen of Earth…......
WHY SHOULD THEY BE GIVEN THE ‘Right’ to vote?????? No country on Earth has ever given non-citizens any democratic voice or vote!
Rather such persons should be treated as Resident Aliens. Mind you not with disrespect nor in any inhumane fashion but after the way any resident alien is treated today in the USA for example. BUT if they choose to use their supernatural belief structure in a subversively criminal fashion such persons should be deported to the country they claim as their origin.
One way we as both Naturalists & Secularists can take back our Earth from those of supernatural & spiritual realms who have stolen & usurped it from us….......
I ain’t sayin folks…...........I’m just sayin!
