Tell me, are you as SICK and TIRED of these right wing religious nut jobs who think they're entitled to have control of this country? Who flout the laws and do whatever they want in an effort to control this nation?

Because I am doing something about it...

It is time to put an end to these shenanegans. For decades, we've seen this kind of crap go on, and the Feds do NOTHING to stop these Theocrats.

Theocrats who threaten our very democracy.

It's time to change that. It's time to put a stop to this Dominionism.

I, along with a bunch of my friends and the Richard Dawkins Foundation are asking people to call the IRS Tax Advocate and file a complaint on Monday.

This is our Facebook event page we put together.

You can also contact the Treasury Department to lodge a complaint. Here's an FAQ from the Freedom From Religion Foundation on that process.

Now, if you don't like this idea, you're entitled to your opinion. I really don't care. But you should. If you didn't know, it is these right wing Dominionist ideological churches that are behind much of what we are fighting against. It's not just about gay rights, womens' rights, or even civil rights. The Family was part of the earliest union busting movements in the 1930's, too.

They are AGAINST RIGHTS, period. They want us all to be serfs, dependent on their largesse, so they can fuck us over if we actually, you know, say something about how they treat people.

Plus, these churches want to have their cake and eat it, too, and I for one am not going to stand for it. You want to be involved in the political process? Fine. But they can pay the price of admission, just like everyone else.

And I know I am not alone in this. The latest numbers from The Pew Forumshow that 66% of Americans do NOT like religious organizations being involved in our politics. And the politicians are scared to death of these religious leaders.

Not me.

I intend to fight them, make them sweat their tax exempt status, and if I have to, monitor their activies on election day.

If you give a damn about REAL freedom of religion, like our secular form of government, and are tired of the Theocrats meddling in politics, I urge you to join me.

Monday, October 8th. We. Push. Back.

UPDATE: Due to the Federal holiday, the phone in part of this action has been moved to Tuesday, October 9th. Thanks, jan4insight for the heads up.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
