"Day of Reason" - May 7 - Noon - State Capitol Rotunda

  • May 7, 2009 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Minnesota Atheists strongly value the separation of church and state. To remind our government of who they represent, we make our collective voices heard in the State Capitol while our fellow citizens observe the National Day of Prayer. Every voice counts. If you can take a long lunch break, or have the free time, we would appreciate making your presence known with us. You'll be hearing from the leadership of Minnesota Atheists, as well as from our members. Prepare to be moved by famous speeches you may have heard before, and listen for original orations on separation and the rights of atheists.

Come be a part of history and make your voice heard.

For information about the event, you can contact [masked].

    Glad everyone could bear with us on the lousy acoustics, but I'm very grateful that so many people showed up. I think this is one of the most important events we have, to show the public and the media we will stand in support of secular government.

    Absolutely the most appropriate time/place to speak on the importance of church and state.

    Day of reason is a fantastic way for atheists to have our voices heard. The speakers gave many compelling reasons to adhere to our founders' vision of secular government.

    I got there late a little before 1pm and some crazy christians were speechifying and such so I didn't stick around. Thought this shindig would've lasted longer.

    I thought that the event was very well organized and that the speakers were informative. My only concern is the noise level. Some speakers were difficult to hear and some were very loud.

    A very reasonable day ... except for the people speaking in tongues outside.

    It was fun. Overheard outside after leaving: "It would just make me so excited if you come pray with us!" Just had my typical response of raucous laughter. :)

    A good lineup of readings. Definitely worthwhile to provide an alternative to the prayer session outside.

    Some very good presentations outlining what we stand for as a group.

    Take time to participate in an event that highlights the need for separation of religion and state. The number of people there to support the Day of Reason will be observed by the legislators. To influence government, we must show we count. Be counted and attend this event.

    I'm fairly certain I will be working.
    Separation of government and religion means lots of the Founding Fathers, no?
    Let me know how it goes!
