In light of recent court rulings with regard to the building of religious monuments and the inclusion of religious literature in public forums created by various public school districts, I thought I would post the part of the Constitution that we as atheists and secularists have been fighting to uphold.
We also have the recent NSA spying scandal to thank for bringing renewed attention to the Fourth Amendment, as well as the “right to assemble” part of the aforementioned. Today there will be mass protests in response to the government’s spying on … well … everyone on the planet, it seems, as well as its treatment of Edward Snowden.
This site has an interactive map of the protest locations.
And a hey-howdy to the NSA agent assigned to read all the crap I’ve published over the years! You poor bastard.
