It looked like a typical Sunday morning at any mega-church...The only thing missing was God.
Dozens of gatherings dubbed "atheist mega-churches" by supporters and detractors are springing up around the U.S. after finding success in Great Britain earlier this year...
On Sunday, the inaugural Sunday Assembly in Los Angeles attracted more than 400 attendees, all bound by their belief in non-belief. Similar gatherings in San Diego, Nashville, New York and other U.S. cities...
The founders, British duo Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, are currently on a tongue-in-cheek "40 Dates, 40 Nights" tour around the U.S. and Australia to drum up donations and help launch dozens of Sunday Assemblies. They hope to raise more than $800,000 that will help atheists launch their pop-up congregations around the world.

Sounds to me like Sanderson and Pippa are looking to get some quick cash.
I'll take Peter and Gordon.
Who is that masquerades as an angel of light?
They meet at Starbucks and the title is tipping the barrista.
They meet at Starbucks and the tithe is tipping the barrista.
So what? They all get together and talk about nothing?
Give thanks to nothing?
Sounds boring to me.
Shall we now sing that old favorite: “Give me that old time atheism.”
A comedian draws 400 to a show and its now considered a MEGA-Church?
Almost as sad as the LGTB(WTF?) yearly “national” meeting that drew 20 freaks.
But if conservatives draw a few thousand its an embarrassment.
I'm an atheist, and it sounds boring to me as well...!
Is Nothing sacred?
Churches need to fight this themselves. I think churches of ALL denominations have not been doing their jobs with the effectiveness they used to in decades and centuries past, and I somehow doubt it is not just me who feels this way.
the rise of the anti-Christ’s
ha they will never out do the democrat national convention
They praise themselves.
So it’s just like a Unitarian Church then?
I wouldn’t want to bet on that.
Athiest churches, isn’t that like gay marriages?
Good one!! LOL!! I wonder if they all boo God in unison like the Democrats did....
Sorry BHF, I thought you said, “...never do the democrat
Pippa and Sanderson.
Pretty darn close, I’d say!
