Molitva Pravdi (ili, možda, molitva Pravde?)
Freedom From Religion Foundation je poveća ateistička organizacija (navodno imaju preko 10.000 članova) koja se zalaže za (američkim ustavom zajamčeno) odvajanje države i crkve, a kojoj ovom prilikom čestitam na prvom jumbo-plakatu (slika desno). Ako nekog ubogog vjernika poruka zbunjuje… ne, nije riječ o filmu “Dogma”. 😛
Ovdje želim prenijeti početak govora Michelle Goldberg na prošlogodišnjoj konvenciji FFRF-a:
Thank you so much for having me here. I’m going to start by telling you something that actually happened to me two days ago. I was in New York doing a kind of dialogue, at an event with a woman who’s the civil rights director of the Anti-Defamation League. We were talking about what I’m going to be talking about this afternoon, about this kind of transformation in the way our government works and some of the attacks on First Amendment protections that a lot of us grew up taking for granted. But there’s also a cultural element that goes beyond legal or political remedies, that is also very troubling, such as the growth of a very coercive proselytization among classmates in public schools, and among coworkers in the workplace.
Deborah, the woman from the Anti-Defamation League, was talking about how, in many workplaces now, there are prayer groups, and they’re obviously not compulsory, but there is an element of understanding that if you want to get ahead, if you want to be part of a team, you join in.
After the presentation, a woman came up to me and said, “My daughter works in a place like that, where everybody is in a prayer group, and if you want to be on the good side of the supervisors, you take part, too.”
I said, “That’s really terrible,” and she said, “Yeah. It’s the Justice Department.” That’s a true story.
Tko bi se ono trebao brinuti o Ustavu, zakonitosti i sličnim vrijednostima “modernog” društva?
