    You’re right, it shouldn’t be dictated. In fact it’s not. That’s why we have a democracy in which the will of the people as a whole is determined by popular vote. One feature of this democracy is that the people are allowed to vote in any way they want, for whatever reason they want. Therefore under the terms of our Constitution I am allowed to vote on the basis of my religion, or on the basis of hating religion, or on the basis of getting free stuff, or whatever basis I choose. Are you suggesting that people should only be allowed to vote for government-approved reasons?

      Almost, but not quite. In the U.S. the populous does not vote on civil rights. They are actually voted on by the state or federal legislature, and deemed valid or not by the Supreme Court.
      So, in effect, even in America, our civil rights are dictated. Although hopefully not by the bible or any other religious book.
