I'll be attending the NDOR events in Raleigh, NC with some of my friends from our local Coalition of Reason group in the Piedmont Triad, NC. Greta Christina, Dan Barker, Todd Stiefel and more will be there.

For any reading this who feel that they are the "only non-believer I know", they should check to see what events will be taking place in their home towns, or within reasonable distances (hint -> we share rides, if you have the time, this doesn't have to drain your wallet).

Some of you may know "believers" who don't buy into the revisionist co-opting of the Establishment Clause, by Christian Fundamentalists, be they Christians themselves or Jews, Muslims, Hindu, Buddhist, etc religious adherents who understand the true intent of the Founding Fathers' inclusion of this most basic and important secular and pluralist protection of every single "We the People", regardless of faith or lack thereof, in the Bill of Rights that was the inspiration for all modern secular nations today.

Many of us recognize that there is now a culture war between those who want to drag the US back to the theocratic oppression that inspired the Revolution, and those of us aware of the secular ideals of the Age of Enlightenment/Age of Reason that birthed the Constitution (that the National Day of Prayer mocks with impunity and complacency both).

Help us drag the US back from Iron-Age ideologies to where it belongs, the 21st Century!

So, if you want to express your Reason-based patriotism, please check to see what's available near you by going to:

Check the drop down menu in the upper-right corner of the homepage.

"There will be blog, yes."

Last minute schedule conflicts meant I couldn't make the trip.

There will be blog, yes.

Glad to hear you found some people, that's what this is all about.

I joined a couple of the meetups in this area after you sent me the link - I'm attending two get-togethers next week. Thanks so much for recommending it; I'm really looking forward to getting to know more of 'my kind'! :) Have a great time at NDOR, and don't forget to fill us in when you get back!
