Bad Religion has been enlisted to perform a one-hour set at The Reason Rally, the self-described "largest secular event in world history." The free-to-attend event will take place in Washington, D.C. on March 24th, 2012 from 10:00AM – 4:00PM at the Washington Mall. The event will be dominated by influential figures in the reason and atheist movements including evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, biologist PZ Meyers, magician and noted skeptic James Randi as well as Bad Religion. Promoters had this to say about the event:
Across America, in every city, every town, and every school, secularism is on the rise. Whether people call themselves atheists, agnostics, secular Humanists, or any of the other terms used to describe their god-free lifestyle, secularism is coming out of the closet. According to a recent Harris Poll, we are the fastest growing theological segment – in all fifty states. But as we emerge from hiding, we meet hostility. Nationwide, secular people are among the most despised in the country. Our politicians ignore us, our society berates us, and we are blamed for everything from 9/11 to earthquakes.
