GUEST,Bob Coltman Lyr Req: For the Godless March on Washington (84* d) RE: Lyr Req: For the Godless March on Washington 28 Dec 11

Good work, Kendall. This thread deserves revival. Looking back at the interest and excitement over the Godless march on Washington of '02 is sobering ... how long and dry a march it has been since.

How heartening it would be to see another Godless march in this coming election year.

That wouldn't be too unrealistic as a political lever. Since this thread was begun there have been interesting figures showing that the proportion of atheists in the US population (one of the last of the civilized nations to be sunk in the Dark Ages re religious credulity and lack of true spirituality) is growing. I can''t recall the exact figure, but don't our major numbers make us something like the second largest "religious" group in the US?

I wouldn't be surprised if more and more people are taking to atheism in disgust at what passes for religion in the popular mind. When did religion stop being a matter between oneself and one's conscience and start being a bludgeon?

Yeah. I know. Long, long ago, as the song says.
