    Sunday Assembly Is the Hot New Atheist Church



    At this house of worship, the faithful don’t believe in God. And instead of praying, they sing karaoke. Nico Hines speaks to the two comedians who founded this earnest new religion.

    We’re in one of the hippest enclaves of East London and hundreds of people are leaping up and down, singing along raucously to the ‘80s power ballad being blasted out by a triumphant band. This is no ordinary gig, though. Welcome to the world’s fastest growing church.

    For the most part, this Sunday morning congregation has been enjoying something that looks a lot like a traditional church service. The addition of a frenzied clapping game, “mini-rave” break-out sessions, and those billboard anthems might be the most immediately obvious differences, but there is another significant departure: this church is a God-free zone.
    Founded in London earlier this year, the atheist church is expanding fast. New branches of Sunday Assembly have already been set up in Bristol, England, Melbourne, Australia, and New York City. Next month, Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, the church’s founders, will set off on a world tour designed to announce the second wave of godless churches that are opening in Ireland, Scotland, Canada, the United States, and Australia.

    Seems the devil is making inroads. When one think of C H Spurgeon speaking in the 1800's about the gospel of Jesus and now this...all I can do is SMH.:(

    Is god sometimes unable to control what he creates or is apart of him just pure evil? How do you come up with the creation of the devil? If all things are created by you and from you would you not have to be evil to come up with evil. So is the devil really making inroads or is it the evil side of god? This seams to be the question polytheism tried to answer that monotheism is unaware of.
