Unlike religion, secularism has no intrinsic organisational qualities. The organisation and hierarchy of religion makes it very easy for those lobbying for religious privilege to find and mobilise a large number of people should they want to display support for an issue.
It is very important, if there is an issue on which we need to show support for the secular viewpoint, that we present a highly visible response. Without this, the assumption will be that there is no support for the secular viewpoint -- despite the fact that 78% of Australians (including many religious people) are in favour of secularism!
