I felt this story was very misleading... I have never in my life met an Atheist that tried to conduct "church" meetings or convert others... I'll post the link below, if you go to the right of the page you can actually watch the video rather than having to read the article... But seriously, there is something wrong with this guy, & he's willingly making Atheists look nuts IMO!
What do you all think... Is this really how people see Atheists? Is this really how Atheists want to be seen??
Well what do you know! Atheism has it's fanatics too. I guess it just goes to prove that mental defects are not exclusive to any particular belief.
In plain english - the guy is an asshole.

Okay I read the article. Only one aspect of atheism is being portrayed and that is of the Militant or "anti-theist" atheists. Kind of like using Westboro Baptists to represent all Christians. Now I find the "De-baptism" with a blow dryer to be quite witty and humorous. What I disagree with is the connotation that raising a child with religion is akin to child abuse.

Sorry but I agree with most of what he said. As a 'militant' Atheist myself, I DO see religion as child abuse and think it has nothing but a negative on society as a whole. I don't however think the ceremonies he does are cute- they are unnecessary and borderline moronic.

It is terrible when the media reports on a smaller group of people out of a whole religious faith base and makes it out to be a blanket statement for the whole group. I guess atheism has become mainstream and is subject to the same poor reporting.
