Principles of a Secular Government
A secular goverment affords no privileges or advantages to religious institutions. Accordingly, the following principles apply* to the legislation & administration of government.
a. Ecclesiastical property is not exempt from taxation.
b. Public appropriations are not made to sectarian charitable or educational institutions.
c. Chaplains are not employed by congress, the military, or other public institutions.
d. Religious services, holidays, & festivities are not ordained, observed or recognized
. . . nor engaged in by government.
e. Religious morality is not enforced by law.
f. Observance of sabbath is not enforced by law, nor is blasphemy.
g. Affirmation of versimilitude or feality in judicial, legal, & ceremonial matters are not based
. . . on appeals to deities or use of religious artifacts.
* These principles are based on nine demands promulgated by the Free Religious Association in 1874.
