First of all The Friendly Atheist:
So, as I understand it, these "churches" are just gatherings of atheists, humanists, agnostics and sometimes even believers who just like to get together, sing a few songs, listen to some sermons and have a little shindig or something.
I was brought up a Catholic and during my oldest daughter's childhood attended church (CofE) again because I reasoned it wasn't my position to educate her as an atheist (push her towards atheism) ... I think differently now, it was more of a blip than a truly rational decision.
However, I do believe that religions act as community focal points and I miss that. OK, I don't miss anywhere enough to get me off my butt and down to a church but I think it has a certain social cohesive value that atheists (being as difficult to herd as cats) don't do anywhere near as well.
But here's the question ... who you go to an atheist church? Being brutally honest my answer is probably no, I don'ty like the leaning towards a church format, it bothers me so no.
Any of you?
