I posted yesterday about an Atheist March in Poland.
And now, I learn about an Atheist March in Mexico!
It will be held this Sunday in both Mexico City and Guadalajara.
Why are they doing it? Here’s a loose translation:
The reasons to organize and convene an act of this nature can be summarized in two points:
1) Make public that atheists exist, we have numbers, and we are productive members of society. Openly reject the stereotypes that say “atheists have no morals because they don’t believe in God” and atheists “only want to convert people of faith and want to be intolerant of religion,” as well as many others.2) To show that religious institutions and right-wing groups use their political and economic power to influence areas of life beyond their scope, which is in violation of the secular state, as guaranteed in our Constitution and many laws around the world.
The message we want to spread this way is that atheism is a way of life. It is as valid, moral and legitimate as any belief…
