[About an actual atheist church in the UK]
"I would LOVE to see this in the US. It would be perfect!"
...in making you miss the point completely. As per Pastafarianism, this is purely an exercise in making fundamentalist beliefs look fucking stupid. Certainly in the US.
Hear that? It's Gen. Chuck Yeager flying at Mach-7 in Project Aurora, demonstrating how fast - and high - the point is going over your head; and as he has 'The Right Stuff', he has been touched by His Noodly Appendage (seeing as he went as near as dammit into space, and nearly killed himself in a Lockheed Starfighter in the process, thus he certainly saw way beyond the point).
One word: Irony
Irony. What many in the US (certainly 100% of all right-wing fundies) have no concept of. Now, look again at where that 'Atheist Church' is located: Britain.
The richest source of Irony on Planet Reality.
The Honourable Judge John E. Jones III, whose decision in Kitzmiller vs. Dover in late 2005 spelled the end of the Creationists' educational agenda as a whole. And he's a Conservative Christian like you lot. 'Jones'. That's a Welsh name. Wales is part of Great Britain, where - as part of the National Curriculum - even 'Faith Schools' have to teach Evolution, if they're to continue to receive state funding; as in it's the law. No Kitzmiller vs. Dover required.
Wales is part of Britain. Like I say, the richest source of Irony here on Planet Reality. The Conservative Christian Judge John E. Jones III - Of Welsh ancestry - deciding for the plaintiffs in Kitzmiller vs. Dover.
For once, it's not the Irony Meters of we Atheists that are exploding.
Judge Jones has been touched by His Noodly Appendage too. RAmen.
"You could have an Atheist Church, in a tounge in cheek way only. It would never be accepted under the legal definition of religion"
And now you know why the 'Church of $cientology' has never been legally recognised as a religion (certainly a charity) by our Parliament, thus the Orgs etc here in the UK have to pay tax on the income from Auditing, Courses, sales of LRH's BS books etc.
