Blog Against Theocracy, This Weekend!

Nobody cares, really, to what insanities, illusions, delusions, craziness, or batshit nuttiness any one individual subscribes.

That really is between the person and the (imaginary being under the bed of space) thing they worship.

The issue, really, is that whatsoever millennialist/apocalyptic codswallop floats your personal theological boat, it is yours and yours alone, and that in no way implicates any right or privilege for you to spread your idiocies through the machineries of the State.

The blogswarm gathers:
Tengrain of Mock, Paper, Scissors, wrote the best concise description of this blogswarm last year:

The theme [of the blogswarm], like always, is the Separation of Church and State — we are for it. But the variations on the theme are many...This is not a bashing of religion - peeps can believe what they choose, however they choose — but it is a reminder that the Government should keep out of religion, and Religion should keep out of the government.

We have lots of logos this year or you are free to make your own. If you want me to include your logo on this site, email me; my addy is on the sidebar to the right.

Here is how to participate in the blogswarm.

1. Write a post in support of our United States Constitution, specifically regarding the separation of Church and State. You can write your post anytime, but the blogswarm takes place Easter Weekend, April 10-12. Your post will be linked at the Blog Against Theocracy website during and just after that weekend.

If you have any writer's block on this, here are some great websites to get you started:

First Freedom First

Americans United for the Separation of Church and State

The ACLU's religion page

And I also love the blog Talk2Action.

2. Send the URL of your post via this online form, and add any comments you would like to appear with your link. Make sure you provide the permalink to your post and not just your blog. I will receive your link and over Easter Weekend (and just after I'm sure) I will post these to the BAT website.

3. Sit back and enjoy the hits, and know that Thomas Jefferson, Buddha, Mohammed, and Jesus his own self would be proud of you. (Yes, personally? I really believe that.)

Thank you!
