If you look really closely at the new logo, it does say "Coffee For Godless Heathens."

‘We Are Stronger’: Atheists To Hold Massive Rally On National Mall Next Month � CBS DC

Quote:
Atheists To Hold Massive Rally On National Mall Next Month

WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBSDC) – Thousands of atheists are expected to attend the Reason Rally next month in Washington, D.C., an event that organizers hope will unify a large part of the secular community.

On March 24, the National Mall will be populated by those who sympathize with atheist perspectives, generally defined by an absence in belief of deities or other religious icons.

The location and timing of the rally are not coincidence – the Reason Rally hopes to make its own impact on the 2012 elections by injecting a discussion of separations between church and state into the national dialogue.

“We need people to ask the tough questions, and they’re not. What’s more important: the Bible or the Constitution? Do they want theocracy? Do they want Christianity as the official religion, and if so, which version?”
What's more important: the Bible or the Constitution? Do we want theocracy? Those are the sort of "tough questions" we can expect at the Reason Rally?

OK, what's more important atheists: the electron or the proton?

Anyway, I take comfort in knowing that high above the heads of those in the Mall the inscription Laus Deo will be sending a different message to the One who, through providence, gave us both the Bible and the Constitution. The electron and the proton.

Both offer false dichotomous choices. Both are dumb questions.

You think the constitution and bible are inseparable?

edit: Just so you don't think I'm being dense, I think you're missing the point of their question.

For 225 years they seem to have been quite compatible.

I understand and completely reject the premise of the question.

The writers of the Constitution understood that self-governance is impossible without a moral, virtuous populace. Religion seems the best way to understand, teach, support and pass on those values. But by no means the only way. Literature and art for example can, well used to anyway, promote positive virtues.

Then you understand how your proton/neutron question made no sense.

It isn't but the Constitution is mentioned in the Bible. Next to nucleons and electrons. You know, Atom and Eve. You can't miss it.
