In times such as these, where the Religious Right is day by day
moving this country towards a fundamentalist theocracy, a vibrant
movement of resistance is needed.
The religious fanatics all have their missionaries to spread their
messages of hate. The theocrats have state power and are slowly
moving towards plunging the world into a Dark Age-style religious
dictatorship, they are using the power of the state to destroy
rights of all who are not like them; women, homosexuals, immigrants,
and all non-Christians, or even Christians that don't support the
same neo-fascist agenda that the Christian Right does.
We must become foot soldiers of the 'Cultural War.' Why? The
government is trying to push the religious agenda as far as
possible. That is why it is most necesarry at this point to begin
propagating atheism to counteract the fascistic Christian law
dreamed of by the Republicans.
I propose a nationally organized, propagandist organization to
challenge the Christian Right as they move to deconstruct the law
and literally replace it with the Bible.
We must create and distribute literature showing the truth about
religion, mainly Christianity. Leaflets and pamphlets can be easily
created and distributed. There is already much dispersed throughout
the interntet, but there is no organization that is out there,
actively promoting scientific understanding. We must gather people
and information to spread. By doing this, especially on campuses, we
can begin to disintergrate the social base of the Christian Fascists.
We must join forces with any and all groups that oppose the
imposition of religion upon our private lives, and the use of
religion to justify government policy. The enemy fo my enemy is my
We need people most of all. Any atheist can be of use to the
movement, and consequently, of use to the human race. People to
write movie and book critiques, study the contradictions of each
religion, principally Christianity, and show the fallacy of them.
People with knowledge of science to debunk the myth of Creationism.
People to distribute literature at schools and in all of society.
People that follow the religous influence in the government and it's
affects on our lives, and where the Christian Fascists (note: I
don't call all Christians fascists, just those that wish to create a
theocracy) want to take this country. Any and all atheists concerned
about the future should join up with the movement and spread the
We must defend even religious groups that fall under attack by
others. When in any case, 'faith' is used to oppress another person,
we must fight against it.
We need to formulate a list of demands. These will not be able to be
voted into being, as both parties are 'faith-based.' What must be
done is a social movement that will crumble the feet of the giant.
There are already a great number of excellent atheist groups
throughout the country. I support all of these in the fight against
theocracy. But what is lacking is outreach. This is what must be
done. The atheist meetup groups (atheists.meetep.com) are a great
place to start chapters throughout the country to begin the counter
attack of the Cultural War.
I am currently compiling all the atheist literature that I can email
anyone that requests it.
Anyone who would like to be part of an organized propaganda network
can email me at theocracynow@...
