reality is spirituality
Thanks for visiting. The Church and its Constitutional protections exist NOW for anyone engaged in Flat Earth research.
As increasing harassment is being invested upon those who understand the Earth to be Flat - it is incumbent upon the leadership of this community to consider appropriate preparedness. The Church of the Flat Earth declares that to Observe Creation is a Spiritual Quest - that Reality is Spirituality.
To understand that the Earth is a Created Realm - can be an elemental aspect of one's Spiritual experience. It is the foundation of each of our personal Religion.
Whether an endless plane, or a realm within a dome, is unclear - but the Earth is not a flying spec of insignificant dust flailing through an endless cosmos. Earth is not a "planet". It is generally flat, unmoving and without curvature. We do not live in the invented, phantasmagorical, imaginary universe of “space”. Human evolution from slime to monkey to man is an absurd notion and without proof. These are anti-Creation concepts imposed upon common minds by the fraud of Scientism.
Rather, the world is as it seems to our perceptions - calm, safe, in a preferred position and possibly overseen by a benevolent Creator. Therefore that we exist - in itself - is a demonstration that we are all special aspects of Creation. We as a Congregation therefore declare that this comprehension of a flat, stationary Earth is a tenant of our personal religion and a foundational concept defining of our relationship to our Created existence.
We believe collectively that this is a Created Realm, based on the observation, experience and proofs that the Earth is Flat. The Church of the Flat Earth does not attempt to define the nature of the Creator. It is left to the individual to find their own answers.
This expansive realm of the Earth has no demonstrated curvature. It is not a giant, spherical planet zooming though imaginary space. Conventional theoretical science is easily proven wrong and therefore this world is clearly made for us by a Creator. To this Flat Earth belief and its evangelization we dedicate our good works and hereby consecrate this establishment of religion as the Church of the Flat Earth.
The first line of the First Amendment ensconces the entitlement of an establishment of religion as beyond the reach of government, specifically taxation and oversight.
First Amendment - U.S. Constitution - Religion and Expression
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
As an organization recognized by the American Constitution - a Church or Religion is offered certain protections.
Federal Laws Against Religious Discrimination
Religious liberty was central to the Founding Fathers' vision for America, and is the "first freedom" listed in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. A critical component of religious liberty is the right of people of all faiths to participate fully in the benefits and privileges of society without facing discrimination based on their religion. Following is an introduction to federal laws against religious discrimination.
Also, the Civil Rights act of 1964 outlines specific infractions of discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. They later added age.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964: Equal Employment Opportunity
DISCRIMINATION BECAUSE OF RACE, COLOR, RELIGION, SEX, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN
SEC. 703. (a) It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer--
(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; or
(2) to limit, segregate, or classify his employees in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect his status as an employee, because of such individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
It is therefore increment upon leaders of the Flat Earth Community to consider formalizing a Board of Directors position and encouraging membership in the Church of the Flat Earth and thereby help consecrate it as an “establishment of religion”.
The steps for that process are to be clarified in the future - however, the Church is in operation as of the signing of its Declaration 12/15/19.
