Demand Secular!

For the last few weeks, there have been some pretty big protests going on in the Middle East. Governments have fallen as a result. Twitter and Facebook were key weapons for the rebel groups. I think it is type that some kind of protest starts here in America. I think it is time we demand secular!

America is already a secular nation… technically. However, in many European nations candidates for public office and public officials would not dare speak about religion out of fear of seeming presumptuous and disingenuous.

In America however, one must be religious in order to convince people they are moral. The more religious one pretends to be the greater their chance of winning an election. This is why former President George W. Bush said that his favorite philosopher was Jesus, John Kerry cared a Bible, and Mitt Romney talks about God a lot, but tried to play down his Mormonism. This is also why people like Sarah Palin. Mike Huckabee, and Michele Bachmann are even on the political map.

It is time we demand secular! I don’t know how this type of revolution is to take place, be I know we need one. I know we need to use Twitter and Facebook and Demand Secular! Let’s show American politicians that Americans voters will no longer tolerate the “God” card in politics.

Liberal Christians can join this fight with us. The Separation of Church and State protects them too. We need to get people thinking differently and this type of twitter revolution may be the best way to do it. Spread the word, we’re coming! #DemandSecular

    We need to do more than demand secularism. We need to get right to the source…..denounce religion.

    Paul K, while I agree with you, simply denouncing religion won’t work; it’s just like Fundamentalists denouncing atheists and that only gets them stirred up more.

    To get people thinking differently requires an education system in America that can teach evolutionary science without interference from religious groups – a never-ending battle that’s going to take a long time.

    Can’t we do both? I think we can denounce religion and work with liberal Christians and demand secular.

    “Can’t we do both?”

    Yes, I think that’s happening but in America my experience has been that there is no one more reviled than an atheist (that’s slowly changing) whose non-belief is equated as religion. In all the debates I’ve seen between believers and non-believers, the two, it seems, will never meet. There will always be religions until humans overcome death and are able to live indefinitely.

    Well, I disagree with that. I think religion will soon be treated the way we treat psychics. Sure they will exist, but no one will take them seriously. That is a few generations away, but we are working toward that goal. I don’t see how that gets in the way of the Demand Secular idea though. There are Christians out there who support the Separation of Church and State and we need to work with those people and Demand Secular! We don’t have to play nice with them either. Just because we are welcoming them to help us doesn’t mean we must stop criticizing them for their ridiculous ideas.

    Demanding secularism is a by-product of atheism. Atheism is the target opponents of secularism aim for and we have to defend atheism by counter-attacking the absurdity of religious beliefs…not demanding secularism…..but countering superstitious belief at every opportunity with rationality and reason.

    Keep pounding away at religion……it can and will work with the modern ways of communicating….i.e. the Internet.

    I agree Paul, but I also think that we can do both at the same time. We can and should continue to pound away at religion and other superstitions and still reach out to the religious and seek their aid in Demanding Secular. But the point of this blog entry is to start this revolution through twitter. I don’t know how to do that yet, but similar revolutions seem to be working in the Middle East.

    At my age, I’m more adept at changing a type- writer ribbon than figuring out when to press the delete button or how to add a link to my piece (I still don’t know how), Good luck! I know you can do it. I have faith in the human capacity to develop and grow ,

    I am not down with the Phil Plait model of treating religionists nicely. He is not going to get anywhere with hard core religionists with that kind of attitude. Yes, we need to keep pounding on them with reason and logic, but we can also let them know in no uncertain terms that we, the secular society, have had quite enough of their horse shit, and we are not having any more of it from them. Eventually, they will stop; probably through dwindling church attendance. No more Mr. Nice Guy, Phil.
