A New Jersey-based atheist group is starting the first on-demand TV channel dedicated to godlessness.
AtheistTV will be launching this summer with big plans to reach out to atheists, humanists, freethinkers, and folks who are looking for a way out of faith.
Members of American Atheists, the organization behind the endeavor, think its about time.
Theres a glut of religious TV programming out there, from televangelists to Christmas specials, spokesman Dave Muscato told The News. But theres no atheist channel. We wanted to fill that void.

Wait. What? Then why are there a million porn channels? And what, exactly, would you call today's network programing? An ode to godly living? Pffft...

Why does this remind me of “Air America” and the (pardon the pun) abortive “Church of Atheists” which fell apart in a matter of weeks?

(Rule #1: There is a God. Rule #2: It isn't you.)
It won’t be the first. I don’t think it will be a raving success.
Completely. Totally. 100% redundant with everything else out of Hollywood.
No change at all.
Better yet, Dave-—fill that spiritual void inside you with Jesus.

Day late and dollar short.
All the other networks have been doing this for years.
Hope a bunch of libs sink piles of money into this venture.

Shows like “Modern Family” are just propaganda for normalizing homosexuality.

A show about nothing.
Seinfeld already did that.

Don’t we already have that? It’s called cable television.

I don’t get it. If they don’t believe in something, then what is to talk about? I think talk will get old pretty quick just saying how much they don’t believe in god. If they don’t believe in god, why do they even need to talk about something that doesn’t exist in the first place?

Looking for a way out of faith? How hard can that be? No, actually, they’re just hoping to do as much mockery and ridicule as they can on this Earth.

It already exists...it's called LOGO and it celebrates all things sodomy.

My favorite programs on the new channel will be “Justifying Genocide” and “Nihilist Party Time”.

...folks who are looking for a way out of faith
Because, you see, faith is oppressing them, hounding them, won't let them rest. "There's got to be a way out of this faith," they cry. And then, there it is: Atheist TV, the way to freedom.
And as a result, they are...
Er, I mean...

Uh, Dave? If you "fill that void" it won't be atheism anymore.

We wanted to fill that void
Godless people have a void they need filling. How ironic.
You can thank Pat Robertson for selling the Family Channel
(IFE-publicly traded) which was sold for 1.9 billion dollars and ultimately now in Disney’s hands with trashy programming. Not exactly family friendly (and probably not what the initial shareholders had in mind). Currently the 700 Club in the evening is sandwiched between shows that in my opinion do not even begin to promote family values. I guess it’s all about the $$$$$$$$$.

Because MTV and MSNBC and CNN aren’t enough.

Good Luck, There’s already ABC, CBS, NBC CNN & MSNBC !!
this is an example of “bullysexuals and bullysexusalism
The irony of unintended consequences will be the renewal of faith for people wandering in the wilderness of television addiction, boredom and political correctness.
Our Father has decided to use television to undo the sins of the past several decades by using these flame throwers to draw attention to the fire of faith.
God is Great.

There is no void of Godless TV.
All people have to do is watch the non-Christian channels.

(...your newest purveyor of wit, laughter and the Popish creed.)
Exactly. Their channel is far from being the first one dedicated to promoting ungodliness.
I love how he spoke of filling a void—atheism itself is a void.
