Religious Anarchism - A term used for anarchist ideologies with a basis in religion. While not officially considered theocratic, some RelAns may consider their ideology to be “theocracy,” “real theocracy,” or “anarcho-theocracy” in a more literal sense. This is because RelAns believe in following a god or gods or a religious philosophy rather than the state.
