    I have no problem with people coming together to form a community, but I have a problem with borrowing from religious rituals when we do it. I understand people find comfort in ritual, but falling back into old habits invites the same problems that prompted us to leave in the first place. We need to replace bad habits with good ones, not redirect them. I don't think it'll take long for less scrupulous people to take advantage of the ritualistic nature of "atheist churches" to start convincing people to fund their scams.

    You want to gather together and be part of a community? Go do that. You want ritual? Start a hobby like sculpture. Don't look to authority figures to fill the gaps in your life.

      Exactly. An atheist church is like a Puritan brothel. I understand atheists are often marginalized and persecuted but how often do you see a successful organization built around the lack of something?

        Arguably it's the same lack of something whether the church is atheistic or not, right?

        Anheuser-Busch. They produce millions of gallons of beer that lacks taste.
