Added: Mon, 04 Jul 2011 15:09:51 UTC
American Atheists will fly either “God-LESS America” or “Atheism is Patriotic” over 26 states on July 4th, celebrating our growth as a movement and our freedom to live without dogma and religion. Patriotism article HERE.
WE NEED PICTURES! If you will be in the area of one of our ads, please take some good high-quality pictures for our website and magazine. If we use your picture, we will give you a free Convention T-shirt! Email your pictures to Blair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ALSO – Please find your local news TIP line and call in when you see the banner. If you are a member of a local group or run a local group, take advantage of this opportunity to get some local press as well! Let this rising tide raise your ship, too!
Why are we doing this? How many times have you heard theists refer to atheists as un-American, anti-American, or un-patriotic? How many times have you heard theists insist “there are no atheists in foxholes?” These canards are an insult to all atheist Americans who love and support the United States. The very fact that we stand up to defend the constitutional separation of church and state, fight for the civil rights of all non-theists, and work to ensure true freedom of religion is one of the most patriotic things anyone can do! By defending against theocracy, we are acting patriotic and defending the founding document of this country. What better day to emphasize this than on the birthday of our great country?
