Read Dear Friends, Bloody on the Highway, before you read this.
In this followup post, I’d like to ask readers what we’re all doing to make that better-time-to-be happen.
I hope to raise consciousness among the people who read this …
First, that fellow readers are taking various actions in their own lives. In other words, that you and I, ordinary people, CAN do things that make a difference.
Second, that each of us really NEEDS to be doing something to make a difference.
What I don’t want to do is make anybody feel bad — or at least not TOO bad — that they might think they’re doing nothing. Supporting others who carry on the fight is not nothing; I can tell you that the comments you leave here and elsewhere on FreethoughtBlogs is the main fuel that makes us bloggers able to go on with it.
But pitch in your stories. Let me and others here know what you’re doing, what you’ve done, what you hope to do.
Email the details to me, and I’ll post them in recurring posts like PZ Myers’ “Why I’m An Atheist” series.
It can be as simple as raising consciousness by passing along religion-themed jokes on Facebook. Or as big as speaking at an event, writing an article or a book. Or just persuading a young person in your extended family to perform the “What if there’s no God?” thought experiment.
And yes, successfully making the transition from goddy to godless in your own individual life is a significant contribution.

And by the way, if you’d like your contribution to be a guest post here on one or more subjects you think might fit with the overall tone of what I do, let me know. I’m open to new blood.
