Brief comment about religion in the draft constitution ¶
I agree with many here that there are far too many flaws to support the constitution, at least the draft I was able to download on 02 Asgard 001 (10 July 2017). First and foremost is, of course, the very direct constitutional route to a dictatorship. However, there's an almost equally worrying item in Chapter 1, bullet 11.
Equality and unity of all people is a supreme value of Asgardia (good thing), but then the constitution accepts all religions as valid and practicable. Religious dogma, by it's very nature as implemented by human beings, inevitably leads to disunity, and inevitably causes those who believe a different dogma to be treated in all respects as non-equals. Religious dogma is hence in direct contravention to the supreme values, and has no place in our space nation.
