We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Should Governments regulate fraudulent religions?

Should Governments regulate fraudulent religions?

Fraud is a broad term that refers to a variety of offenses involving dishonesty or "fraudulent acts". In essence, fraud is the intentional deception of a person or entity by another made for monetary or personal gain. Fraud offenses always include some sort of false statement, misrepresentation, or deceitful conduct.

Most governments and countries have fraud laws of some kinds. They generally interfere with religious fraudsters only when physical harm is being done to our gullible citizens yet ignore the monetary theft that the fraudsters fleece from their victims. Prosperity ministries are the most flagrant of these immoral religions, but all religions based on demonstrable lies would be included in this question.

Our governments are quite good at acting against obvious fraudsters yet seem reluctant to protect our more gullible citizens when it comes down to religions.

Religions, to me, get a free pass to lie and steal all they can from victims, especially the older citizens even when governments know about the fraud.

I begin to see the inaction of governments on these religious fraudsters as a dereliction of duty.

Do you?

I agree that literalism and reading myths as reality is the root of most problems from religions. That and our own tribal natures which is what causes us to create gangs and tribes/religions.

Atheists are recognizing this more and more and that is why they are starting to open atheist churches. To ignore the tribal need of fellowship would mean that they might lose some of their children to our immoral mainstream religions.

DL, Is an atheist Church Democracy?

It might be as close as you can get.

Chris

Not that I can see, although they seems democratic enough.

I do not see them as political though.

Vomiting,

Gretta Vosper seems to be yelling and "Ministering" to people.

She may be able to get a cult.

The title of the video Atheist Minister is B/S.

It seems according to the video that she is stuck in theology without understanding religion.

Ok.

I prefer to discuss issue and not people.

Regards

DL
