religion shouldnt be able to vote for or against itself.. like a smoker shouldnt be able to vote for or against cigarettes.. or a child vote for or against there being playgrounds on every corner of every street..

if all religious votes are irrelevant, then every vote left will be the same.. which takes votes out of the picture entirely

I will be defending the voting rights of the first-party.

This should not happen because then people with strong feelings FOR a certain subject will not be able to defend it in the popular vote.

That system could be very easily abused. For example, someone hates America and wants America to be banned from the United Nations; and let's say hypothetically this turned to a popular vote in America. Of course the majority of Americans will want America to not be banned, but they won't get a say. This means that the possible ~1-2% of people who hate America will have the power over the ~95% of people who have pride in their country, alongside the 'neutral' ~3-4% of people that I'd assume don't care either way.

We need the majority consensus, not the rarity victory.
