Democracy is Humanism
Democracy comes from the Greek words, 'demos', meaning people, and 'kratis' meaning power. So democracy literally means 'people power'. Voting "rights" are only a manifestation of democracy. At the core of democracy is the idea that the elected legislators are sovereign. This is in absolute contradiction to God's sovereignty - the Truth of God. Hence, democracy is anti-Christian. Hence, voting, according to the Bible, is not a right. Rather, it is a manifestation of a humanistic doctrine.
