← National Day of Reason

I have been trying to think of how to respond to the Day of Prayer. I saw a good article about it here:

I think the positive action approach is a very good thing to add to the continuing efforts through the Courts. Education about the failure of prayer needs to be increased, and that failure contrasted with the value of getting off your knees and doing something positive. We need both people going to the prayer meetings with signs protesting the nonsense of prayer, and people going to donate blood or do other positive actions to show the contrast.
