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

I just hope at events like the Freethinker's annual picnic next year, people bring more kids..  I wasn't only referring to 20's/30's...

Oh, I don't know, Linas- I was kinda jealous when Randy P got to sit next to you the other night! :) :)

Re Monette: Strangely, I have a suspicion that this very same age gap might affect churches as well (though I don't have very much experience with this, lol). People in their 20's seem very independent in general, and are perhaps less likely to seek out social situations which are gathered around any particular set of causes. Then again, maybe I'm just speaking for myself in my younger days :)

Not sure I'm sexy enough.

Linas, though there are a number of different factors here, this is true. Which is a good reason to support college secular groups who fill the void! And a good reason to attend the Akron Secular Student Alliance conference on Oct. 19, which also features an impressive lineup of speakers-

Many people depend on their church for socialization, sense of community, charity and other "I belong to a civilization" type things. I get it.

And that's one of the ways the humanists are severely lacking. We don't quite have the community built up enough to support ourselves, if that makes sense.

But, we're growing and working on it!

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? :)
