People should opt to use "they" on official documents rather than "he or she"

Round one: opening statement
With that out of the way, my introduction:
On many documents, such as legal forms, or even things as simple as classroom worksheets, the phrase "he or she" or its variants are used when referring to a person of unknown gender. This is relatively modern, compared to the use of universal "he". However, then people realised not everyone identifies as "he". The problem with this is that not everyone is a "he or she", though. Because of this and other reasons, people should opt for the use of "they" instead of "he or she" on official or professional documents.
However, I will allow it if you can explain how religion would relate to this topic.
