Rationality Gets Some Much Deserved Advertising

A new ad campaign will be hitting the subways of New York soon. Earlier this year a similar campaign took place in London. Both campaigns are working to increase awareness of people who do not subscribe to any religious mythology, and to promote rational thought over fantasy. Personally, I didn’t think I’d see these kinds of organized campaigns in my lifetime, but they are long overdue. It’s vital we do our part to encourage the evolution of our species away from mythology and toward reason and logic. Until we do, struggles like our current LGBT equal rights battle will continue to restrict our lives.

The group behind the New York City campaign is the Big Apple Coalition of Reason , "a collection of local organizations working together to increase awareness of secular-minded groups throughout New York City". Their goal is "promoting wider acceptance of a more rational and realistic view of the universe", and to reach out to the "humanists, atheists and agnostics living in the New York metropolitan area". Their posters read…"A Million New Yorkers Are Good Without God…Are You?" Read the whole story HERE.

Rationality took a stand at the recent National Equality March as well. A friend of mine who returned to Fresno after attending the march dropped off the sign he carried while there, which states "END THE HARM From Religion-based Bigotry and Prejudice". The sign was produced by the group Faith In America which had a contingent there to march and passed out 5,000 signs to the crowds. Other sign slogans from this group included "Religious based bigotry has had many targets, LGBT people are the latest victims". Visit Faith In America’s  Official Website for more information. Their mission statement includes the following…"The mission of Faith In America is to educate the public about the harm caused to gay Americans when religion-based bigotry and prejudice is used to justify condemnation, discrimination and violence toward this minority population group."
