Lebanon’s Civil Marriage Not Civil War — Social Media in Action!

A secular state is a concept of secularism, whereby a state or country purports to be officially neutral in matters of religion, supporting neither religion nor irreligion. A secular state also claims to treat all its citizens equally regardless of religion, and claims to avoid preferential treatment for a citizen from a particular religion/nonreligion over other religions/nonreligion.

Idea & Objectives:

The Lebanese Civil War was a multifaceted civil war in Lebanon. The war lasted from 1975 to 1990 and resulted in an estimated 130,000 to 250,000 civilian fatalities. Another one million people (one fourth of the population) were wounded, half of whom were left with lifetime disabilities. Read more on Wikipedia

Therefore, “Civil marriage, not civil war” was one of many banners carried by the mostly young, educated protesters who gathered in response to a campaign on Internet social networking sites. It was Lebanon’s first such demonstration in favor of secularism.

Boobquake Campaign! — Learn Social Media By Example


Super Powere Boobs?

Super Power Boobs?

During Friday prayers, Muslim clerics are required to give sermons, and last week the head honcho of Friday prayer sermon clerics, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, was quoted in Iranian media saying that  “Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.

It’s not like it’s the first time that a religious figure blamed natural disaster on a certain group of people, this is actually quite common. However, in the western side of Indiana, there was a young Purdue senior that had a light bulb flash in her head when she read about this. What if we put that theory to the test ?

What is it about?

Jennifer McCreight a senior at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN decided to put the clerics theory to the test and call for a campaign to women around the world asking them to show off some skin on April 26th and see if this act does really cause a calamity of epic proportions.
