 Happy "Use Telepathy to Communicate with the Invisible Sky Daddy" Day

Today, May 1st, is the National Day Of Prayer, a day designated by the United States Congress as a day when all Americans regardless of faith are asked to come together and pray in their own way. "Regardless of faith" here means "in keeping with the Judeo-Christian tradition," for if you volunteer to help out with events in your area, you're only welcome if you sign the following: A volunteer must be an evangelical Christian who has a personal relationship with Christ. I acknowledge that I am working for the Lord Jesus Christ and the furthering of His Work on earth and agree to perform my work with the highest standard of Christian faith.

In other words, you are not welcome if you are a Jew, Muslim, Catholic, Mormon, Buddhist, Zoroastrian, Pagan or Wiccan.

You know what these groups should do? Donate blood. Seriously.

A few years ago the National Day of Reason was founded to counter this nonsense. It purposefully falls on the same date as the National Day of Prayer. The goal of this effort is to celebrate reason - a concept all Americans can support - and to raise public awareness about the persistent threat to religious liberty posed by government intrusion into the private sphere of worship.

Please join we nontheistic Americans (including freethinkers, humanists, atheists, agnostics, and deists), along with many traditionally religious allies who view such government-sanctioned sectarianism as unduly exclusionary, in giving blood today.

I could have sworn May 1 was May Day, the international day of Communism. "Workers of the world unite!"
