This Wednesday, gay rights supporters are encouraged to celebrate Day without a Gay:
On December 10, you are encouraged not to call in sick to work. You are encouraged to call in “gay” — and donate your time to service!
That’s not possible for everyone, though.
SarahH let me know of an alternative way to show your support: Project Postcard, where you send a postcard to Barack Obama letting him know you want him to support (or at least tell Congress to support) equal rights legislation.
This is a huge separation of church/state issue as well as an epic civil rights battle, and I think atheists want to be involved in the fight for justice.
Damn right we do.
There are plenty of gaytheists and straight allies who can afford the stamp and postcard.
It’s a simple but meaningful gesture.
