I've been going to the same church for years. However I'm not a member and I can't vote at the AGM

The membership process requires me to go through a membership course and interview which is more commitment than I have.

I feel disenfranchised.

Who can I sue to change the rules?

Church is a club that permits individuals to achieve power and position without the consent of the entire membership.

Democracy requires consent of the majority.
