CBS DC: ‘We Are Stronger’ to Hold Massive Rally On National Mall Next Month

WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBSDC) – "Thousands of atheists are expected to attend the Reason Rally next month in Washington, D.C., an event that organizers hope will unify a large part of the secular community.

On March 24, the National Mall will be populated by those who sympathize with atheist perspectives, generally defined by an absence in belief of deities or other religious icons."

Rightardia prefers the term 'non-believer" rather than atheist because non-believer is a more inclusive term. Non-believers include atheists, agnostics, and people who no longer attend church. 

For that matter a person wh0 is religious and even believes in organized religion, but also firmly believes in the separation of church and state should be welcome in a secular movement. 

Early in the history of the US, we had deist leaders who believed in God, but not organized religion. Many of our founders, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin  Franklin and John Adams were deists. 

The Reason Rally hopes to affect the 2012 elections by injecting a discussion of the separation between church and state into the national dialogue. 

This is overdue because the right wing has been distorting the secular nature of our nation for years. 

The Reason Rally should be as inclusive as possible.
