From MSN - Atheist 'mega-churches' take root across US, world
File this under “I don’t believe” it:
On a recent Sunday, the inaugural Sunday Assembly in Los Angeles attracted more than 400 attendees. Not limited to LA, similar gatherings are taking place in other larger cities across the US. One of the strangest things, to me anyway, is that these gatherings have been dubbed "atheist mega-churches".
“Sunday Assembly — whose motto is Live Better, Help Often, Wonder More — taps into that universe of people who left their faith but now miss the community church provided, said Phil Zuckerman, a professor of secular studies at Pitzer College in Claremont.”
At the end of the, service (???), volunteers passed cardboard boxes for donations. Why not just call a collection plate a collection plate?
From Yahoo news - White House tech chief says 'making progress' fixing HealthCare.gov. Along the same vein; you really can (not!) keep your current health insurance plan, men really do mean it when they say “I’ll call you”, there really are “just two more minutes” in the game, she really will be “ready in five minutes” and women honestly think “size doesn’t matter”.
Also from Yahoo news - Bill Clinton Just Undercut Obama’s Health Plan. Former US President, Bill “The Great Explainer” Clinton, feels that the US Government should make good on President Obama’s promise that “Americans could keep their current health insurance plans if they like them”. Bravo President Clinton, it’s about time someone spoke up, because all Obama had to say about the latest let down in Obamacare was “I’m sorry”.
