Read the constitution… and you’ll be able to answer your own question.

For starters you would confiscate all disposable income so no one has any money for funding church activities or charity. In other words taxes would be so high no one would have any money left for anythign other than shelter and food and life necessities. That way the government can control everything.

You would mandate a liberal agenda that teaches tolerance toward immorality.

Look at what Obama is doing and this is pretty much what you would be doing.

You would become a dictator and use the military to take over all the churches

I don’t promote religion.

YET, I wouldn’t -if i had the authority- force people to leave their religions.
I consider that to be ideological dictatorship; forcing people to leave their religions is as bad as forcing them to follow a religion.

Everyone is entitled to a belief they believe in as long as they don’t force their belief on other people, and that’s the only thing I have against religious peoples, even if i DO consider religion to be bullshit.

That to me is treasonous question – I don’t know what class you are doing this for – but I think they should be reported…

i would start a task charged with identifing and apprehending all religious citizens. i would then have them shipped to dis-assemblyy factories and destroyed. undoubtedly some religious groups would survive and continue worship “GOD”. I would institute a policy in which anyone caught aiding a suspected godite would be murdered after being forced to murder their immediate family. I would sentence the family to death by torture if the suspect refused to murder them. I think that would solve religion for us.

I agree with nancy but I think this is a BS question. I don’t believe you
have a class that is having you write a paper like this not a state funded school. I am not sure but I would think that would be unconstitutional and their could be a lawsuit over it.

You couldn’t ban religion even if you wanted to. It’s protected by the 1st Amendment. It would take a constitutional amendment, which would require approval by a 2/3 majority of states, and there’s no way you’re going to do that.

Instead you could announce that you are going to uphold the constitutionally-mandated separation of church and state. You’re going to vigorously prosecute hate crimes against minority religions. You’re going to introduce bills to Congress to remove ‘In God We Trust’ from our money and ‘under God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance. You’re going to hire people in your administration from a wide range of religious traditions. And you’re going to push for gay marriage. If you were an atheist, you might come out and announce that openly in a speech, and perhaps spend 30 seconds or so giving your reasons.

People have a right to be religious if they choose, or to be free from religion if they choose. The government shouldn’t support religion or endorse one particular religion over the others, but it shouldn’t hamper religion either, so long as it’s in its proper place. Religion isn’t a problem unless people of one religion or another feel that their particular religious beliefs entitle them to special rights and privileges over the rest of us.

The best way to get rid of religion would be to stop funding of researchers that withhold material that discredits Judaism/Islam/Christianity.

Research of currently available books such as “The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible” by Abegg, Flynt and Ulrich. Studying “Egypt Canaan and Israel in Ancient Times” By Prof D.B. Redford. Read Berossus Genesis, Manetho Exodus by Prof Russell Gmirkin and a great number of similar material as well as such books as “The Ante Nicene Fathers” should make it obvious for a great majority that these religions are the greatest disasters to have been invented.

As there is still a “Flat Earth Society” the religious community could still practice for those that needed a crutch, all we need is to discredit the use of crutches by healthy people or no marathon will ever be run.
