Blog Against Theocracy April 6-8
Have you ever heard of a blogswarm? Well, I'm planning on participating in one now that I know what they are. I somehow got a link to Blue Gal and heard about the Blog Against Theocracy to be held April 6-8. Check out the link Blog Against Theocracy for full information about how it works.
You just have to post once during that time period on one of the subjects relating to separation of church and state. Then you e-mail your post to Bluegalsblog@gmail.com and it will get posted onto the Blogswarm site.
Although I tend to lean toward the agnostic side of things, you don't have to be non-religious to believe this country was founded on the principle of separation of church and state, and to feel that this principle is being eroded and is in danger of eradication under the present administration.
I hope no one is offended by this; I mean no criticism or disrespect of anyone's beliefs as long as they don't start affecting the lives of those who don't share those beliefs. Freedom of speech is a fine line - you have to make sure one person's freedom of speech doesn't impinge on another person's freedom to practice their religion. But by the same token you can't let someone's practice of their religion impinge on someone else's life either.
Let's preserve our freedoms. Blog against theocracy this weekend.
