umm...I want to know how to stop funding religion and spirituality (though i'm not an athiest IRL). I don't know how it's happening, but whenever I choose an option in an issue, that has some religious guy, it usually says nothing about funding religion. My government is athiest, or at least does not want to fund religion. I came across an issue about a spiritual advisor this morning, and I chose the guy that thinks religion is a load of hokey, just to stop my funding. But here's the thing, I cam across that a long time ago, chose the athiest guy, but later, it seems that I've started funding religion despite we don't want it, or my government is athiest. Can anyone help with issues to avoid that fund religion, and choose options that don't fund it, or help me decrease it's fund?

You may eventually get an issue that allows you to tax religions like everyone else. Its one of my favorites and I always choose to tax because like you, my government is atheist ;).

I'm not sure if there is an issue about funding religions, can't remember one off hand and don't feel up to wading through the thread in the issues forum to find out. If there isn't, you can always try writing one :)

I think it is based in part on the choices you picked when you started your nation. I have a 0% funding of religion and spirituality in my nation. I did actually see a thread somewhere where a person worked out how to get particular types of nations and funding but i have forgotton where it is, as for in-game changes to funding, I dont have any idea sorry, the aforementioned thread may also have something on that.

Perhaps, in your case, "funding religion and spirituality" actually means funding the extermination of such? Maybe your government has gone militantly anti-religious, and is spending funds to shut down churches and imprison religious leaders?
