"Secular Action"

Could we have a definition please?

Could an atheist bus campaign mobilise Ireland's non-believers into secular action, asks Elaine Edwards

JUST AS SOME people were perhaps considering turning to religion to sustain them through doom and depression, a group in Britain this week put up posters with a discouraging message: "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."

Kind of like Catholic Action?...

oh, wait. No. Catholic Action is dead.

I'm somewhat surprised they raised that amount of money so quickly. More commitment than one would expect from people who don't believe in anything, unless of course they are Nietzschean "nihilists" (aggressive willing of nothingness)as opposed to comfort-seeking "last men". Quaere whether this reflects an underlying, emerging political battle between hard-core secularists and Islamists, with Christians stuck in the middle as the weakest of the three (even though a response to Christians was the catalyst for this particular set of ads)?
