Debbie from the San Diego Coalition of Reason has set up a counter-rally. If you can make it, this is when we need you! Here's a concrete negative impact that religion is having right in our community! Debbie's announcement:
"I suggest you get there early in order to secure parking. [Note: if you haven't been up there before, there's the main lot right around the cross and another one a little bit lower down. You have to drive right by it to get up to the cross. -MC]
"Be polite, and stick to the issue of church state separation, and the constitutionality of this particular religious symbol on public property - where it supposedly represents all veterans.
"If you don't think you need to be there for yourself, then come to support our non believing active and retired military. For more information about atheists in foxholes, see San Diego MAAF (http://www.meetup.com/San-Diego-MAAF/) and the national chapter of MAAF (http://militaryatheists.org/)."
