Manifestation for Basic Human Rights opposed by Organized Religion
Where ever in the world you find the following human rights opposed, you will find organized religious organizations are in the forefront opposing these human rights as well as justice for the victims. They also try to take away some of these basic human rights in the name of their dogma, even if you do not believe in their religion. Here is a list, in no particular order. There is a lot more to add to this list, so please leave me your suggestions in the comments. This is a work in progress.
1.) The empowerment of women. (long friggin list for that)
2.) A women’s right to a safe abortion.
3.) Freedom from religious prosecutions.
4.) The right for every child to have a proper science education.
5.) The prosecution of child rapists who work for religious organizations.
6.) Gay Rights (long friggin list for that).
7.) Every human’s right to euthanasia.
8.) Every human’s right to criticize religion.
9.) Every person’s right to get a divorce.
10.) Every woman and man’s right to safe birth control and safe sex.
11.) Every child’s right to a religious-free education.
12.) Censorship in media because of religious intolerance.
13.) Religiously motivated wars and violence.
14.) Bodily mutilation to children because of religious dogma.
15.) Any law based of any religious dogma that carries any penalty of any kind to anybody.
16.) Tax advantages given to any religious organizations.
17.) Religious organizations giving medical advice based on their dogma, that hurts and kills people eg. the official stance on condoms and birth control by the RCC, policies on birth control, faith healing and any other snake poison that they claim will cure or prevent you from getting hurt or ill, and a stance against vaccines.
18.) Violence sponsored by any religion because they believe they were offended.
19.) Religious organizations who serve in any form as an authority of justice under any circumstances, as well as the carrying out and or endorsements of any punishments.
20.) An adult’s right to charge money for sex, always opposed by most religious organizations
21.) Religious organizations having anything to do with sex education for children, teenagers, men, women, or really, to anyone at all, makes no sense and should not be allowed in the public domain. But the religious insist on having a finger in the pie everywhere.
22.) Every woman’s right to refuse to marry into pre-arranged marriages, whether child, teen or adult.
