It’s happening April 6 -8, 2007. I first learned about this at PZ’s place, where I was directed to the ringleader of this esteemed event: Blue Gal, who now has a site devoted to it here. Mock, Paper, Scissors designed the cool logo (which gets better the longer you look at it), and is deeply involved with putting this all together, as is The Neural Gormet.
*Whew!* That’s a lot of credits. Hope I didn’t leave anyone out.
But now to the heart of the matter: The WAAGNFNP needs to be all over this. We need to be loud and proud on this one, people, and not simply because this dangerous melding of government with religion distracts people from focusing on their personal relationship with Astaroth and becoming One with the Vision of Gojira™ - the necesary prerequisites toward hastening the arrival of the Giant Nuclear Fireball.
So here’s your opportunity to show your WAAGNFNP Party Patriotism and click that Submit a Post link above. Officially, BAT Week goes from April 6 -8. But the Ministry of Justice is more than happy to start early and finish late if we have enough submissions. Go ahead, make us blog administrators work overtime processing all the great material you send in. It will definitely be a labor of love.
Remember, BAT Week is about how keeping religion and government separate gives us all more freedom, including the freedom from religion. It’s not a simple religion-bashing exercise. That being said, the good news is there’s plenty of room for participation, even for folks who express themselves in ways other than words. To quote Neural Gourmet:
The idea is simple. Just post something related to, and in support of, the separation of church and state each of those three days. Something big, something small, artistic, musical, textual or otherwise. The topic is your choosing. Whether your thing is stem cell research, intelligent design/Creationism, abortion rights, etc., it’s all good. Separation of church and state impacts so many issues and is essential.
See that? You can submit something artsy, not just wordsy, if you’d like. (Not that wordsy can’t be artsy, of course. But you know what I mean).
So saddle up people, and get ready to ride! When this thing is done, we want everyone to be saying, “Damn…did you see the WAAGNFNP during Blog Against Theocracy Week? They freakin’ tore the Roof off that Sucker!”
