Atheism: As Annoying as Religion, But Without All The God

It's annoying that atheists don't realize that one of the benefits of life free from religion should be life free from evangelization,but that's clearly not the case. The even funnier part of the New York Times story about the atheist advertising holiday campaigns is the revelation that the atheists are now splitting up into congregations:

"That is one reason for the multiple campaigns: the groups are competing with one another to gain market share, said Mark Silk, founding director of the Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life, which is also at Trinity College.

“There’s a competitive environment for ‘no religion,’ and they’re grabbing for all the constituents they can get,” Mr. Silk said."

South Park got there first.

Hah, a life free of evangelization would likely have to be one free of capitalism.
