Bricks Have Been Knitted; It’s Time to Show Congress

Remember how the Secular Coalition for America was encouraging people to #KnitABrick in response to the awful Hobby Lobby Supreme Court ruling?

Turns out they got a few submissions:

That’s more than 1500 bricks sent from all over the country.

Now they plan to march from the Supreme Court to Congress to let people know the wall of separation between church and state needs to be large and solid, and they’d like you to join them:

Join us as we march from the Supreme Court to Congress with our wall of separation to call on Congress to take action. Our wall will be too large to ignore. We chose to march during the the first week Congress is back in session to get this important issue on our representatives’ agenda. By joining us, you can help send a clear and powerful message to your government that secular Americans want their representatives to rebuild the wall of separation between religion and government.

They’ll gather in front of the Supreme Court on Tuesday, September 9 around 11:30a and march from 12:00-1:00p. If you can RSVP on Facebook, great. If not, no worries.

And if you can’t come, that’s not a problem either. Just follow the hashtag #KnitABrick and #KnitABrickMarch that day and you’ll get live tweets of the action.
