A group representing Egyptian atheists have called for:
- Cancellation of Article 2 in the suspended 2012 constitution. The article states that Islam is the religion of the state, Arabic is its official language and that Islamic Sharia is the source of legislation.
- Equality between men and women, unrestricted sexual relations and the removal of societal restrictions on homosexuals and transexuals.
- Removal of article giving Christians and Jews the right to be governed by their creeds while denying followers of non-Abrahamic religions or atheists the same right.
- Cancellation of Article 219, which states that “the principles of Islamic Sharia include its commonly accepted interpretations, its fundamental and jurisprudential rules, and its widely considered sources, as stated by the schools of Sunna and Gamaa.”- Equality between men and women forms the basis of justice in any state and that it should be observed with regards to personal affairs, appointment to public posts and inheritance, regardless of what is stated in Islam or Christianity regarding these concerns.- Free sexual relations between men and women so long as the woman consents to the relationship.- Easing societal restrictions and making marriage a civil affair with no religious restrictions.—————I agree with all the above demands and I believe they should be demands of more than just atheists in Egypt.
My knowledge is that a woman can manhandle and rape a man so I think also the man should consent to the relationship…
