Lobby Day and Rally for Reason

Lots of religion-related politicking this weekend. In addition to the Stand Up Coalition‘s Rally for Religious Freedom, today, a group called the Secular Coalition for America (“Representing Secular Americans in Our Nation’s Capital”) will hold a “Lobby Day for Reason.” Lobby Day is designed “to allow atheists, agnostics, humanists, and secular Americans to directly lobby their members of Congress on the issues that matter to us.” I imagine one of those issues is the unfortunate tendency of religious organizations to lobby members of Congress. Tomorrow, the group will host a day-long “Reason Rally” on the National Mall, featuring Richard Dawkins and Jessica Ahlquist, the Rhode Island high school student who appeared as plaintiff in this case.
