We can slay the christian god very simply by by adopting a social frame work based upon Equality and basing our societal structure upon that framework

Religion in a Society of Equals.

No organisation within a Society of Equals is free from the same obligations imposed upon the individuals with those being openness, honesty and integrity. Therefore no religious organisation is exempt from these obligations.

Therefore religious organisations need to comply with this standard of openness, honesty and integrity since they also are not granted privileges just as the individuals are not granted privileges. This will mean to the organisation that they are unable to have secrets nor will it be able to expound any decree to its followers since it has to follow the normal system of the Society where rules come from the followers not those leading the organisation. Also their structure cannot be hierarchical it has to devolve and follow the normal structure of the Society.

In this structure of Society there also cannot be any fomenting of hate and division between either the followers or the Society. Nor can they impose their beliefs and faith on their children till the child is of an age and maturity where they can be able to make their own personal choice in following their parents religious beliefs or not.

An individual that accepts the Equality of all Human beings notices that Human Spirituality that gives rise to religion is in reality is a personal attempt to explain the experiences that they have that cannot be explained by the normal methods used to explain phenomena that Humans experience.

So the religion within this Society will be a personal religion based upon the Equality of all that they have been taught since the day of their birth. Should they ever decide to create a god they can call upon when in distress will be imbued with those same qualities of Equality. A god who desires not to be worshiped but for the individual to live a life that emulates their god by being a good honest person with benevolence and compassion for their fellow Human beings. The stories they tell of their god will be of a god filled with the love and benevolence of their creation. Where in the deeds they tell of their god will be where their god punished those that were bad and did bad things would ultimately be punished whilst the good would be reward in their life. Their god will not be offering them anything when they cease to be, they won’t offer a paradise nor will the punish them with eternal damnation. Instead they will teach them not to fear their death nor embrace their death but except their final fate with equanimity and peace.

Should the people wish to bring a religious feeling to a festivity and mention a god then that sentiment would be the outcome inspired by all the individuals not by a single individual.
