I have not commented for a while, but I found this really interesting. Im in the UK, and Atheists are becoming more outspoke in their (lack of) beliefs.
You may find this article interesting. It is BBC so a reliable source.
What happens at an atheist church? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-21319945
I think if it does spread to my area, I would quite like to join in. It sounds fun, as long as it doesn't become too serious.
