"The atheists and humanists must have been eyeing the benefits of Christian congregations because they now want a piece of the action. To accomplish this, they are establishing God-free, um, church-type places. They want all the benefits of a Christian church without the Christian part. I can save them a great deal of trouble in starting this God-free denomination.
All they need to do is find their local mainline Protestant church. Why reinvent the wheel? These atheists, agnostics and humanists will feel right at home on Evolution Sunday, listening to lectures about the glories of man, and they can have all the leftist social justice activities they desire. The United Methodists would welcome them, as would liberal Presbyterians, American Baptists, Episcopals, Congregationalists, United Church of Christ churches, ELCA Lutherans and a vast assortment of other various and sundry apostate bodies. I can guarantee them that it will truly be a God-free experience. It will not, however, be a god-free experience. Man is always the god of choice for humanists and atheists, whatever their affiliations. Man was designed by His Creator to worship, and the atheist proves that as he bows low before the altar of his own reason."
We already have Unitarians.
Sounds like they’re devolving into a cargo cult.
So now atheism is officially a religion and its practice can be banned in schools, the public square and anywhere else religion is banned, just like Christianity?
If they go to Episcopalean, they even get a God-Head of Prince Charles, private schools in many states, existing convents and priesthoods, and existing tax-exempt status.
What can wash away my sin?
What can make me whole again?
Nonexistent is the Flow
That makes me white as snow
What absolute can I know?
This rates right up there with whole body hot wax hair removal, or getting realistic armpit tattoos of Britney Spears, except with that, you actually get something out of the deal.

Let me guess- you’re Catholic, right?
