The Filipino Secularist Group advocates government solely based on on secular principles of individual rights. The protection of a person’s basic rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness — including freedom of religion and conscience — requires a strict separation of church and state.
- We oppose any laws or policies based on religious scripture or dogma.
- We oppose any government promotion of religion, such as the teaching of “intelligent design” in government schools and tax-funded “faith-based initiatives.”
- We oppose any special exemptions or privileges based on religion by government, such as exemptions for churches from the tax law applicable to other non-profits.
The only proper government is a secular government devoted to the protection of individual rights. Thus, this group seeks to educate the public about the necessary secular foundation of a free society, particularly the principles of individual rights and separation of church and state.
