State and church should be completely separated.
When the vast majority of citizens follow a specific religion , it is logical then to have a formal relationship between the state and the church.
The state should aim to ensure the national identity of the nation.
The state should not pay a salary to priests as its role is to cover only services that promote the common good.
Religions do not promote the greater good, as they are the cause of prejudice, hate and even wars among believers of different religions.
Religious education focused on only one religion should be prohibited because it is proselytism.
Young people should receive a general theological education and not a catechism on the prevailing religion.
The existence of an official religion creates problems to the minorities of other believers and to atheists challenging their freedom of conscience.
Religious minorities should respect the traditions and habits of the majority as all citizens respect the majority's political choices.
The rationale of the majority rule is not the oppression of the minority. The basic human rights should never be violated.
