Irreligious free from discrimination too
The right to be non-religious must be protected alongside the right to religious freedom. Any statement about freedom of religion must also include the freedom to be irreligious. The right to freedom from discrimination on the grounds of religious or other belief needs to also include an atheist's right to freedom from discrimination. This subtle point was lacking in the HRC's Statement on Religious Diversity and it would be nice to see it clearly stated in any TOP rights and any NZ constitution.
