Astronist religious freedom

Map visualising Astronist religious freedom.

Astronist freedom of religion refers to the extent to which an Astronist is free to practice Astronism publicly or to make a declaration of their faith amongst others. The freedom of religion for Astronists varies dramatically depending on the country in question with certain countries showing tolerance and acceptance while others demonstrate a specific targeting of Astronists for their faith.

Freedom of religion, in its broadest sense, entails the basic, universal human right to adhere to a religious, philosophical, or spiritual system and to participate in its practices without fear of legal, or social retribution. Freedom of religion also includes freedom of irreligion; that is, the freedom to avoid participation in or adherence of a religious, philosophical, or spiritual system. Freedom of religion is often contingent to freedom of speech because the freedom to respectfully criticise religion(s) is fundamental to the exercise of freedom of belief and expression.

The Astronist Institution continues to monitor the freedom of religion for Astronists on a global scale and has developed a labelling system to categorise different countries:

  • Terminal –– Astronists are consistently and systematically targeted for their faith involving the use of violence and societal ostracisation.
  • Censorious –– Astronism is actively censored by the government and there exists significant institutional obstacles put in place to hinder Astronists.
  • Apathetic –– Astronism and Astronists are not recognised by the government as an official religion or religious group, but no particular censorship of Astronism or targeting of Astronists occurs.
  • Recognitory –– Astronism and Astronists are recognised by the government as an official religion and religious group, but no particular protection is enforced.
  • Protectory –– Astronism and Astronists are recognised by the government and are protected by law to publicly profess their faith.
  • Advocatory –– Astronism is recognised and protected by the government as an official religion, but further to this, it is provided with governmental financial support to disseminate its beliefs.

The quality and extent of Astronist religious freedom is integral to the extent to which Astronism is recognised by a particular government. However, these leaves religious liberty subject to changes in the political landscape.

Methodology

Much like the report of Astronist demographics, the Astrionist freedom of religion report, simply named Astronist Freedom, is published yearly, but unlike the demographics report, it is published every April following on from nine months of data collection usually beginning in the previous July. The first Astronist Freedom report is due to be published in April 2020.

The report often consists of major developments that have taken place, both positive and negative, regarding the religious freedoms afforded or taken away from Astronists from all parts of the world. Case studies are often included and significant amounts of data are provided with detailed descriptions of the status of Astronism in every country.

As an addendum to every report, a considerable section is dedicated to followers of religions in the wider Astronic tradition to which Astronism belongs. Again, case studies are provided and extensive information and data is provided on the religious freedoms of those within the Astronic tradition of religions.
