For those of you who aren’t already aware (or aren’t American), today is the National Day of Reason—a day meant to be a counter to the “National Day of Prayer.” Today, take a few minutes out of your internet browsing to sign a petition in support of the purely constitutional separation of church and state in the US.
Whether you’re American or not, please take the time to sign. This is an issue of vital importance to all of us who value rationality over superstition. In fact, I’ll also take this moment to request that anyone from other countries also share with me the links to any similar petitions or causes that may come up in their countries.
As Thomas Payne said, “the world is my country.” We, as humanists, atheists, nontheists, agnostics, freethinkers—however you want to classify yourselves—we have to stand together.
Spread the word! Let’s see how many signatures Tumblr can contribute!
