The Church of Universal Suffrage

The Church of Universal Suffrage was founded in Nashville, Tennessee on June 1, 2020 during the COVID-19 Pandemic, upon the belief that:

(…) all people are created equal and that they are all endowed by their Creator with the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The right to vote is a sacred extension of these rights, because voting is the primary right used to protect all other rights. The violation of the right to vote through voter suppression is a sin, as is the violation of any sacred right.

The Church promotes seven tenets:

I. One should always strive to promote and protect the sacred rights of all people. Protecting the rights and well-being of others is essential to the pursuit of one’s own happiness.

II: One should always take Voting seriously, as it is sacred. The holy act of voting is a civic sacrament and one’s first vote is a rite of passage. The act of voter suppression is a sin, as is the violation of any sacred right.

III: The freedoms of others should always be respected, the right to freedom does not make one free to violate the freedom of others.

IV: One should celebrate their sacred human rights and attempts to violate these rights should be studied and circumvented.

V: It is our sacred duty to provide assistance and resources to ease the suffering of anyone on the pilgrimage to perform the civic sacrament of voting.

VI: The struggle for Universal Suffrage is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over restrictive laws.

VII: Natural human rights cannot be taken away, even as punishment for a crime, they can only be protected or violated. Governments do not grant Natural Rights to people, all people are naturally endowed with these rights.
