Title: Is there anyone who can't declare himself an atheist like me ?
Post by: muharram on July 20, 2014, 08:15:41 AM
I'm an Indonesian atheist
In my country,you CAN'T be an atheist. Because you MUST have a religion in order to became a citizen.
Is there anyone else who have the same problem as i am ?

Can you declare a religion without having to participate in it?

no,you can't declare you are an atheist. you are forced to choose between 6 religions.
i think that's the worst part, goverment doesnt care you are religious or not,as long as you dont show it.
kinda pointless i think,everyone who atheism is pretending to be a theist in public hahahaha.

On another topic...

I have a friend of mixed South-East Asian descent who enjoys going to Renaissance Fairs here in Southern California.  What would be a traditional woman's garb between the years 1300 to 1600 of the Western calendar?

She usually goes in Western Renaissance clothing, simply because that's what we know about here in the US, but she would like to show up in something authentic to her heritage.

Here in my country the tooth fairy actually brings money, cold hard cash to kids in exchange for teeth. You should petition your government to allow her dental deity to at least visit and be allowed to worship her as you please. It's not as if kids there don't lose teeth..

Can you fake it without having to devote any time or effort?

In that case I suppose it could be worse.

Interesting.  Batik is a type of cloth, but when I google "Batik clothing" I get links to some very beautiful clothing.

That is unhappy news.

Are you allowed to convert to another religion that isnt as demanding, or is everyone else still obligated to do what the Muslims say?

I hope you can find a legal loophole or something to get out of your situation.

Where I live, if you can't eat pigs feet you're considered unpatriotic.

True story...
