"00147 Many of our cultures have tended to impose some restrictions on the behavior of individuals within that culture for reasons that are not justified on the basis of clear demonstration that the behavior causes PSDED, but instead on the basis of appeal to the presumed wishes of a deity, the existence and wishes of which have not been demonstrated convincingly."
Even as a theist, I guess I can accept 147, since I accept that we might not know or understand any deity's wishes sometimes regarding our rules. It speaks of presumed wishes.
148 is rather complex to read though. I dont know if this is simplifiying it too much:
We should promote and advocate for acceptance of behaviors that do not predictably cause pain, suffering, disability, and/or early death (for any reasons other than the results of those restrictions being present in the culture).
We should promote and advocate for acceptance of behaviors that do not predictably cause pain, suffering, disability, and/or early death, other than negative treatment in reaction to such behaviors.
