Holy Lincoln Memorial, Batman! For those who missed the Batman & Jesus teaser trailer on the big screen at the Reason Rally 2016 - watch it now!

The Batman & Jesus teaser trailer was filmed in April at Calvary Church in downtown Milwaukee.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the filming to be in the congregation. It's not often you have the opportunity to attend a Batman church.

Check out a behind-the-scenes clip montage from the day.

Director, Jozef K. Richards screened the trailer for the crowd gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial. One of the few presentations on the big screen, some attendees were confused to begin with while others wondered if it was all a joke.

Richards was interviewed about Batman & Jesus on the Mythicist Milwaukee Show podcast. He is also featured with Paul Provenza on the Reason Rally 2016 Roundup podcast.

Reason Rally Recap Part 3/3 w/ Paul Provenza and Jozef Kyle Richards

DURING THIS INTERVIEW WE WERE HONORED TO HAVE PAUL PROVENZA AND JOZEF KYLE RICHARDS JOIN US FOR A SPECIAL REASON RALLY 3 PART PODCAST.

In June of 2016, The Mythicist Milwaukee team took a trip out to Washington D.C. to support the Reason Rally, which is the largest atheist gathering in the U.S.

The Reason Rally ’16 brought thousands of people, that identity as atheist and secular, together to join in support of the separation of church and state and normalizing the atheist label. We were honored to play our part in bringing GZAMethod ManRaekwonCappadonnaKillah Priest andDJ Mathematics from the Wu-tang Clan to perform as the headliner while simultaneouslylive broadcasting the event for those that could not make it to Washington D.C.

Attending the Reason Rally is an experience that we will never forget. There were hundreds of volunteers and organizers that came together to put on this incredibly successful event.

The Reason Rally still needs your help. Please donate what you can to the Reason Rally to ensure that this event is held again in the years to come.  

The executive director of the Reason Rally, Lyz Liddell, shared the following info on the impact of this event:
 

· We held 343 meetings with Members of the U.S House and Senate during Advocacy Days.

· While counts are extremely difficult to pin down, it has been estimated that as many as 15,000-20,000 people came to Saturday’s Reason Rally main event.

· There have been well over 163 media articles, podcasts, and stories published about the Rally and its impact, reaching of hundreds of millions of people. In case you haven’t seen them, there were major pieces in the Wall Street Journal (print and online), CNN, and Huffington Post, and even a nuanced, supportive piece from a conservative news outlet. And of course a slew of local and national broadcast TV and radio coverage. There was really no avoiding us!

 

We wanted to do something special for the Reason Rally to continue to support this initiative. We put together a three part Reason Rally recap podcast event. Our aim was to bring some of the speakers together so they could share what their experience was during this historic event.

Paul’s comedic nature brings a very unique and entertaining approach to being openly secular.
