Discourse of the Mind
“The human brain is an engine of belief. Our minds continually consume, produce, and attempt to integrate ideas about ourselves and the world that purport to be true” (Moral).

Objectively, these rights should not be limited with respect to ancient or irrational doctrine because they do increase the well-being of the general population. Although these truths seem fairly evident, many people fail to see the relation between the lack of rights and non-secular surroundings.
