The Reason Rally is going to be the biggest atheist event in history and guess who's going to be there: The Westboro Baptist Church -- how unsurprising. The event has already attracted such high-profile people in the secular community as Jessica Ahlquist, Richard Dawkins, James Randi and David Silverman, but the country's largest gathering of non-believers wouldn't be complete without America's most notorious Christian-based hate group.
"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God" Ps14:1 Here's lookin' at you, @ReasonRally!Your [unwarranted] pride is your destruction. Dear @ReasonRally: How gracious of you! We accept your invitation & will picket your parade of fools 3/24. Love,WBC."
What would be truly entertaining would be if the WBC unveils themselves as trollish atheist attention-seekers who like to draw negative attention to the most notable downfalls of the Christian religion. However, that's highly unlikely.
Megan Phelps-Roper dimwittedly believes that atheists will either magically fall into the bigoted beliefs of the WBC at the Reason Rally, or they will be "further condemned" by this so-called god thingy they keep preaching about.
So at least there is more reason to show up for the largest secular gathering in history on March 24th in Washington D.C., and that's to at least have a hearty laugh at the Westboro Baptist Church as they preach their nonsense at those who find them nothing more than novel entertainment figures.
