Religion of Love

[573] By the religion of love principles can be adopted. These are to elaborate by a committee at proposals from anyone and to submit to all adherents of the religion of love as a packet to the vote. Only a two-thirds majority of the submitted votes render a principle officially. Votes about principles are to be performed maximum every five years, since votes are costly.

[574] Principles may not affect the opinion sovereignty of individuals. But they can very well determine when an adherent is excluded from the religion of love. Since a lot must have happened before one is excluded, the announcement of the exclusion may take place publicly. The person concerned is to give an opportunity to announce publicly zis objections against the exclusion (if necessary censored).

[1032] The religion of love is neither sect nor cult, since it does not comply with whose requirements, and strives to become betwixt and between. The abidance of the virtue doctrine hampers insubordinate acts like the exercise of coercion and violence. The most wide that could occur, is the exclusion from the religion of love because of unacceptable behaviour. A re-entry is possible.

[1033] Somebody is excluded only after thorough examination of zis case in accordance with the guidelines of the religion of love. The deciding panel is staffed by representatives democratically elected in sufficient number, which must be sufficiently qualified for this task. The exclusion has to be justified to the parties in a written and comprehensive form. A revision of the proceeding is possible.

[1034] It is advisable every time facts become known, which have so far not been taken into account and allow to remain in the religion of love. This includes procedural errors. If the decision falls to a public court then whose prescripts prevail. The costs arising to the religion of love are to bear by it and to meet from a fund specifically to be formed.

[1035] The re-entry requires the elimination of the reasons, which override for the exclusion. Corresponding periods must be taken into account (e.g. statute of limitation). Are the reasons to class with the personality of the excluded, an appropriate (standardised) test or an expert can decide on the necessary presuppositions. The legal process must always be considered.

[1036] The use of an own special language contradicts the plurality of the religion of love in order to isolate oneself. Rather as many as possible trends in society should be seized on and be integrated if they are compatible with the guidelines of the religion of love. The contact with dissidents is to seek over and over and the experiences gained thereby are to include within the religious happenings.

[1037] The religion of love acknowledges the autonomy of the fields outside of religion, but considers corresponding interlocking. It does not arrogate decisions to itself that fall definitely into other fields, but respects the freedom of expression. It confines itself to the formulation of religious viewpoints. So it especially does not interfere in politics, if it is not directly involved.

[1038] Since its field is comprehensive, it may suggest ideas into the public discussion and further the emergence of these ideas (e.g. by a competition). To push these ideas through and to market them is not its business. It refers only to L, where zis authorship is to assume with a probability bordering on certainty. The authorship is only plausible with extraordinary emergence circumstances and ideas.

[1039] The religion of love refrains from purely commercial efforts: it owns, what it requires, but that's it. So it carries on in particular no trade of products of any type, but commissions free companies attending for own account to their business interests. If collaboration with a company is no longer reasonable, then the commission is to revoke.

[1040] The religion of love is alone financed from voluntary donations. It exerts no leverage on (potential) donors. It has no separate budget for advertising or PR, since it rejects both. It relies alone on the reporting and the ability to inform about itself according to uniform standards. It pursues especially no commercial interests, but wants first of all to achieve the weal of all living beings.

[1041] The more adherents the religion of love has, the stronger the professionalisation and specialisation will turn out. The religion of love has early to account for this trend. It makes sure that each religious adherent is comprehensively informed and not unilaterally strained. It offers sufficiently advanced training for work and leisure activities with a further training opportunity.

[575] Principles specify what is central to the religion of love, what is believed and from what one distances oneself knowingly. Principles may be revised and have not to last forever. They should have a sufficiently long forerun to exclude hasty positions. They should speak a proper language in which translation ever. One should be able to be proud of principles, they should orientate.
