Posted on 09/23/2013 12:43:28 PM PDT by lbryce
Pope Francis is significantly upping the Catholic Church's buzz quotient, but another congregation is hoping to take America (and other countries) by storm. Like Methodism and Episcopalianism, the Sunday Assembly is a British import, but with a difference: This church doesn't believe in God. It's motto is "live better, help often, and wonder more." It's striving to be a global atheist religion.

As science itself is wont to say, you can not prove that which allegedly does not exist.
Next they’ll be evangelizing.
The Unitarians already have that market cornered............
They already are. They are already the established state religion in Marxist controlled countries including, to a large extent, the U.S. of A.
They are already doing that. They have the “We are right and you are wrong” evangelism down pat.
Let’s hope so in Saudi Arabia.
This is nothing but a big joke if you ask me
Didn’t Scientology already cover this? Or does Scientology qualify because of a belief in superior alien beings that are coming back for us?
Let me be the first to nominate Bishop Spong as their pope.
I don’t know id Scientology specifically holds there is or isn’t a god.
How can we distinguish this new “athiest church” from some of the other ones we already got? (Except its more honest about what it stands for)
If you believe, you get to go to atheist heaven.
So they are already the “one true church” are they?
Next theyll be evangelizing.
I’m all for this, they should start in one of the 57 countries that Obama has mentioned...
They'll be more pious and judgmental.
... ‘get to their atheist heaven’... that sounds like get into my touche heaven to me.
IT would be a nice drug business front.
From the looks of that video, the atheist “services” resemble the cracked “emerging church” services that various protestant denominations run, originally to appeal to Gen X. I think that that FAD is beyond its sell-by date.
If you don’t believe in God, you might as well sleep late on Sunday morning, have brunch, and read the newspaper. No need to clean yourself up, get dressed, and drive somewhere. Phooey!
Me neither. But they are a "non-proffit" religious group none the less.
This is a leftist ideological group. Think about it. To bind people together in a religion requires a doctrine, a core set of beliefs that everyone in the group believes in.
Atheism provides no such framework, since everything is subjective and opinion-driven. So in other words, this will be a left wing advocacy group.
I can see atheists dividing on this. Some considering it to be a brilliant way to fill the void they feel, others considering it patently stupid.
