Religious autocracy, hierarchy, and monasticism, with dictatorial priestly councils issuing edicts, drafting canon laws, and formulating so-called infallible creeds, are all incompatible with democratic congregationalism
21st century religion. A democratic, practical, diverse working religion devoted to ethical living without imposing ritual obligations or prescribing beliefs about the supernatural will become the religion of the 21st century.
My blog/forum rejects authoritarian beliefs and the validity of religious dogma, deities, devils, demons, holy buildings, holy books, transcendental justifications such as a dependence on belief without reason, the supernatural, or texts of allegedly divine origin.
Faith is an unacceptable basis for action.
