Re: [humanism-174] Ex-Pastor DeWitt's atheist "church"

I see what he is getting at, but I disagree.  Atheism is NOT a religion. Disbelief in God or gods does NOT automatically lead to ANY specific philosophy or ideology.  Both Richard Dawkins and Joseph Stalin share a disbelief in God, but that is pretty much all that the two men share!
 
Freethinker meetups and picnics etc make perfect sense; atheist churches do not! 
 
But this IS America.  We are ALL allowed to do a lot of silly things!

Former Evangelical pastor Jerry DeWitt will be hosting an "atheist church service" in LA. I used to think that any notion of an atheist "church" was ridiculous, but now I figure- especially for someone like Jerry, deep in the bible belt- why the hell not? :)
