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.. like with churches

Your argument basically says that those with the most to lose, should get no say in the political processes that influence them. Here in the US that would mean Blacks should have no say in Civil rights, Women no say on equality, Gun owners no say on gun legislation, etc.

This entirely defeats the purpose of any democratic or republic type system. In your case, people with no vested interest in the topic make the decisions for those who do have.

How do you see this as being an improvement to society at all?
