Blog Against Theocracy – it is next weekend!

Special request from a new scissorhead who liked last year’s stamp better than this year’s logo

Scissorheads —

The Blog Against Theocracy 2009 is next weekend, and so again, I would like to encourage this band of incorrigible spitballers to participate.

The point of the blogswarm is to show support for the very important principles involved in the Separation of Church and State, which the so-called wall of separation has certainly have seen some erosion in recent years. If you analyze the First Amendment, you quickly can see how so many of our institutional problems in the United States all derive from people wanting to impose their religious world views on others.

Issues like freedom of choice, equal rights, gay marriage, stem cell research, assisted suicide, school vouchers, the office of faith-based initiatives, tax laws, even charitable contributions are all directly related to some group trying to push a religious agenda.

This event is not about grinding your axe against any particular religious group – personally, I don’t care if you worship a rock, a graven image, the dead guy, a tree, space aliens, or nothing at all. Just don’t force me to go along with you.

If you have a blog of your own, I hope you will participate from there — the more, the merrier — and if you do not have a blog of your own, please consider yourself invited to blog from Mock, Paper, Scissors. I will make arrangements for you to be able to post directly, or send me your post in an email and I will post it for you.

More information about the Blog Against Theocracy can be found at the BAT Website. And for reference and inspiration, I know of no better resource than our good friends at First Freedom First. They are not sponsors of the blogswarm, but they are definitely our beneficiaries.

Please let me know if you want to participate here at MPS – you can email me: Tengrain AT mockpaperscissors DOT com, or just leave a comment below.

Thank you for considering participation.

    Ten, Old Man,
    I most probably will send something to you for submission.

    Although I am not sure I am as interested in tearing down the pseudofaith idiocracy as I am now griefstrickenly in mourning for the final exhalations of the American financial empire, and its hegemonic abuse of the international community, and its psychotic destruction of the least kernel of decency still attempting to germinate within the American psyche.

    The American Liberty League Lives!!!! Out to fuck over the little people wherever they are, and we are all little, people, and all fucked over.

    I love the feel of Bing’s unadulterated joy! And I can’t wait to read his searing words for my compatriots in the God squad. The ones who deserve it that is!
