Support Kay Hagan and Godless Americans PAC

Check out this Republican attack ad on the Democratic senate candidate for North Carolina, Kay Hagan (to me, it comes across more as a promo for a better, more sensible America that really does separate church and state!). All secular Americans really ought to show their support for Godless Americans PAC, and let Kay Hagan know that her support of them means she has your support as well. You can make your voice heard by donating to Kay Hagan’s campaign, and letting her know that you’re doing so because of her support of Godless Americans PAC. Otherwise, American politicians may be even more reluctant to associate themselves with the secularist agenda than they are now.

Once again the Republicans uses fear, ignorance and hate to fire up the ultra-conservative base by throwing raw, red meat to the uninformed and superstitious. Thanks or sharing the truth.

This kind of attack reveals that it has become seriously politically incorrect to be “godless” or make any declarations in defense of “godless” (or even somewhat tolerant or compassionate toward same). Thusly the hypocritical “extreme religious right” has, over time, had some degree of sucess in pushing public opinion and behavior away from Constitutional standards in recent years. These attackers count on that background being in effect among the listeners, so that the public may be persuaded to vote or spend money in accord with whatever agendas the attackers are promoting, attached to this negative emotional deluge. Backing a secularist candidate would be one creative step to take, to resist this kind of pressure that defies the intent of the US Constitution. One can also support (or even complain to) organizations like ACLU that are known to be committed to constitutional safeguards of the general welfare. The hypocrisy of forcing religious dogma into government policies can only lead to further instability and unrest in a nation. We can see early symptoms in the form of a widening split between “winners” (righteous by proof of net worth?!) and “losers” (people that work and get nowhere, as if proven worthy of punishment?!). We also experience, for individuals, a widening gap between the private (unspoken) inner life and the public life (more and more compulsory political correctness on the job, etc.). Later symptoms might show up as things like food riots, terrorist acts, open contempt for otherwise legitimate religious concerns, and actual violent revolution.
