Nov. 13 Atlanta: Protest Governor's Prayer Service
The US government is not supposed to promote or endorse religious belief or practice, but Georgia Mayor Sonny Perdue does not care about the separation of church and state. He has called for a government-sponsored prayer service in Atlanta on the Capitol grounds, Washington Street side, at 11:45 am. on Tuesday, 13 November 2007 to pray for rain.
This state-led prayer is being protested by supporters of church-state separation from many groups, including Atlanta Freethought Society, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and the Council for Secular Humanism.
My source says:
[These groups] will engage in a polite and peaceful protest on next Tuesday, 13 November at the Georgia Capitol Building in downtown Atlanta (Washington Street near the intersection with Martin Luther King Drive SW--the north corner of the Capitol grounds), from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This protest will be directed at the Governor's actions on the basis both of violations of religious liberty and on the basis of absurd religious ideas.
Endorsements by other organizations may be forthcoming.
