Atheist Kenyans Demand The Removal Of God From The Kenyan National Anthem

 

The atheist community in Kenya has started a petition demanding the removal of the word ‘God’ from the National Anthem.

In a press statement, the group noted that having the word ‘God’ in the national song, yet they do not believe in His existence, was in contravention to the Kenyan Constitution.

“Our National Anthem begins with the words ‘Oh God of all Creation’. Not all Kenyans believe in the existence of a God.”

“We feel the National Anthem is not representative of us and goes against the spirit of the Kenyan Constitution. Kenyans must endeavour to keep a separate wall between religion and state in line with Article 8 of the constitution,” the presser read in part.

The God-less sect pointed out that removing the name of the Creator would make the National Anthem more inclusive as it is supposed to be.

“Our National anthem must be a source of pride and cultural significance; it must create a sense of allegiance and loyalty to all Kenyans irrespective of their beliefs and should be a reminder of significant national/cultural/patriotic events,” the Atheists in Kenya (AIK) highlighted.

The online petition by AIK targets 6000 signatures before it can be forwarded to the speaker of the National Assembly and the Senate. So far, 40 people have already signed the petition.

Here is the statement:
