UPDATE: I’m floating this near the top to keep it in everyone’s mind. Let me know if you want a copy of the logo – I made a “side-bar” sized version, too.
The 2008 Blog Against Theocracy is coming to the blog-o-sphere Easter weekend, March 21 – 23. As many of you recall, this event is where so many of us met for the first time (Hello to HJ, for instance), it is the premier lefty blogging event of the year.
And yes, I am designing a new logo for it. Blue Gal and I are collaborating on it once again, which I gotta tell you, is a delight… if only all my graphics clients were this smart, easy, and collaborative to work with.
The theme, like always, is the Separation of Church and State — we are for it. But the variations on the theme are many, and we scored the widest range of responses. This is not a bashing of religion – peeps can believe what they choose, however they choose — but it is a reminder that the Government should keep out of religion, and Religion should keep out of the government. A great resource for ideas can be found at our good friends, First Freedom First. Many of you know FFF already. They are not sponsors of the Blog Against Theocracy swarm, but they should be beneficiaries.
As I did last year, I will open up Mock, Paper, Scissors to known, loved, and trusted Scissorheads. Last year’s team included:
- Pissed in NYC
- Jimy Dean’s Fucked-up Cousin Clyde
- Commander Other
- Sorghum Grow
If you are interested in being on Team MPS, please let me know in the comments, and I will make it happen.
