What would you do to further the secular cause?
I don't think donating a portion to a secular charity is enough. I would want to be hands on and involved, making sure my money went somewhere AWESOME!
I would invest in a fleet of party barges ala Moore.
It would exist simply to drown out hate speech like WBC. Any event they planned to be at we would be at, too. I want to fight freedom of speech with more freedom of speech.
We would ask the parents of fallen soldiers if they would prefer glitter and sequins or a simple wall of black-suited men and women linked arm to arm.
I would also invest in macho men and women with hearts. Pay a fair wage to folks who take on the duties of safe-haven escorts and private(ish) security outside of abortion clinics.
I want to do what the government fails to do..
-or what they don't have the right to do in the first place.
I figure it would take about fifty buses and a few thousand people.
We would have to have our own IN-HOUSE training for protest safety and riot -management.
We'd need dispatchers in every state and diplomats working with local officials (where possible.) In states like Texas, we'd have to have a clear liaison with the ACLU or other big hitters that could help ensure fairness and equality in permit granting.
I think that action like this could change the face of America.
This is my secular pipe-dream.
