A couple weeks ago, I proposed on the blog that for every mention of the words “Jesus,” “Christ,” “Lord,” and “God” by the main pastors during Barack Obama’s Inauguration ceremony, I would contribute a dollar amount to the Secular Coalition for America.
I asked you to join me in doing that and I’m thrilled to report that several of you did just that.
The SCA informed me that they received $620 from readers of this site from that request alone. (That does not include my own contribution which I will be making later this week.)
Thank you to those who gave! And for those who did not, it’s not too late if you’d like to chip in!
The religious words were uttered a total of 35 times. Whether you give $0.50 a word, $1.00 a word, or $5.00 a word, it makes a huge difference. And it feels good to give to a worthy cause 🙂
Can we reach an even $1,000?
