Freedom from Religion
South Africa 
In opposition to the Charter of Religious Rights and Freedoms the Freedom of Religion, South Africa proposes the below charter to be adopted:
 
South African Charter of the Freedom of Religion
PREAMBLE
 
The South Africa population consists of various groupings of religions and beliefs including non-believers, atheists and agnostics. It is important for each group to have the right and freedom to conduct their faith or conviction as they seem fit within the laws of the country, without violating the right of others or threatening state security. The government of South Africa is responsible to govern the country in the best interest of its citizens, and the world, without subscribing to a particular belief or faith system. The state will in no circumstances be used or allowed to be used to fund, advance or propagate any religious belief or faith. State should be firmly separated from Church.

NOW THEREFORE the following South African Charter of the Freedom from Religion is hereby enacted

    1. Parliament shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

    1. Government will promote the constitutional principle of separation between church and state.

    1. Government will not provide support, advocate a particular religious belief or advance religion. As such no government funds and resources will be used to fund or advance religion.

    1. Educational institutions funded either partially of full by the government will not conduct any religious ceremonies, classes or the teaching of a particular belief in these institutions.

    1. No person will be refused access to any educational system, health care or public service on ground of his religion or non-religion.

    1. The affairs of the government will be conducted using critical reason, factual evidence, and scientific methods of inquiry, rather than a particular faith or mysticism.

    1. Every person will have the right to attend any educational system or public service in a secular environment without being singled out to his particular belief system or non-religious convictions and without being subjected to any particular faith or conviction.

    2. No person may be discriminated or disadvantaged by his belief convictions or his non-belief in faith or mysticism.

    3. No child may have his rights or threat to his life or health be violated by his caregivers refusing medical assistance on the grounds of religion. For these cases a court of Law will decide the appropriate medical care in the best interest of the child.
