Blogging Against Theocracy

Blogswarm Promotes Support For Church-State Separation And Religious Liberty

This weekend, April 6-8, various well-known bloggers including BlueGal, Mock, Paper, Scissors, Neural Gourmet and Talk2Action will be participating in a "Blog Against Theocracy".

This blog-a-thon is intended to show support for separation of church and state and true religious liberty.

The blogswarm has drawn a strong commendation from First Freedom First, a joint project of Americans United for Separation of Church and State and The Interfaith Alliance Foundation.

Since First Freedom First was launched in 2006, some 130,000 people have signed a petition highlighting the dangers posed by religious coercion in public life. Among the noteworthy Americans to have already signed the petition are Walter Cronkite, Phil Donahue, Laura Flanders and Judith Light.

This weekend's blogswarm, while not sponsored by First Freedom First, reflects FFF goals.

Organizers say there are no real guidelines to the blogswarm. The idea is to post at least once from Friday to Sunday against theocracy and in favor of the constitutional guarantee of separation of church and state.

Once bloggers have posted, an email with the URL of the post may be sent to bluegalsblog@gmail.com and the link will be posted on the Blog Against Theocracy blog.
