So this idea just sort of hit me. We the Atheist community are against the attempted theocracy that the religious lobby's attempt to create day in and day out. I think we need to join other fights other than just the basic ones. Many of us, I have gauged from discussions posted on this site, support things such as Gay rights. It doesn't have to be just Gay rights. Anything that you feel like protesting, if you go to these events we need to get groups of Atheists who support other causes together and unify showing our community's support of their community. I have come up with a preliminary t-shirt
design to be worn.
Remember the protests against the Beijing Olympics? I supported it, China has so many human rights violations, and to give them the privilege to host an international peace event was a mockery and a joke. It was disgraceful and while most people love competition and the national pride and had no concern for what was going on behind the curtain in China the truth was, people need to realize there is a cost for everything and people have yet to acknowledge the abuse and destruction in Tibet, and the lack of basic rights for Chinese citizens.
So what I propose is unify a group of fellow Atheists and support causes, and let them know we are there for them. What are you doing is bringing them to our side also. The Gay community is fighting the persecution of homosexuals by the military. We are fighting the persecution of Atheists by the military. What if they two communities unified? The voice would be a lot louder.
What do you all think of this idea?
I was kind of inspired with this Idea while I was watch the film "Milk." Excellent movie.
