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
im saying the smoker cant vote for or against smoking.. and because smoking is unresonable.. obviusly im not saying anyone shouldnt vote on anything
opposing religion is resonable if its necessary.. like war
Those who smoke should have the same value on their vote and their opinion that anyone else has, and those who are religious should have the same vote. On religion especially, because only about 3%(1) of America are atheists, and therefore would be able to vote on religion in your plan. However, since while atheism is not a religion, it has its own views on the world and therefore should be able to vote on religion.
An interesting note is how your idea was applied before; to slaves in America. They were kept as property, and mistreated because they had no representation whatsoever. However, after the Emancipation Proclamation only 8 years later there was the first African American senator.
Oh, and another thing, you talk about how smoking is unreasonable so those who smoke should not be allowed to vote on it? Cigarettes contain nicotine a highly addictive substance. Which is why they smoke, not because they want to, but because they cannot stop smoking. That is like saying anyone who drinks cannot vote on alcohol laws. And saying that religious people cannot vote on religion both would be impossible to enforce and also violate religious freedom.
Do I win?
