WHEREAS A.13.12 gives religious organizations the power to "discipline their members," and

WHEREAS This power is very broad, and thus susceptible to abuse, and

WHEREAS Recent events have shown that punishments doled out by religious bodies are often extrajudicial, violent, and infringements upon human rights, no matter what religion it is, and

WHEREAS Because A.13.2 does not allow every Talossan to leave a religion they dissent, only "adult Talossans," there is the real potential for child abuse in the name of religion (see previous clause), and

WHEREAS Most religious activities are already protected by A.13.3, so we don't need a provision which gives religious authorities an excuse to contravene the laws of the Kingdom

THEREFORE A.13.2, which currently reads;

13.2. Religious organizations are subject to their own rules and procedures, and are free to discipline their members. All adult Talossans have the right to leave any religious association from which they dissent.

is amended to read;

13.2. Religious organizations are subject to their own rules and procedures. All Talossans have the right to leave any religious association from which they dissent.
