Atheism Adopts A Church Practice

Some parents who hope to raise their children as atheists have come to the conclusion that they need something more. As most Christians in America pack up and drive to Sunday School and Church, most atheists would devote their time to other things; that is, until now.

Albert Mohler concludes: In a strange way, the rise of atheist Sunday Schools illustrates the central dilemma of atheism itself. Try as they may, atheists cannot avoid talking about God -- even if only to insist that they do not believe in Him. Now, atheist parents are organizing Sunday Schools as a parallel to the Christian practice. In effect, atheists are organizing themselves in a way similar to a local church. At least some of them must sense the awkward irony in that.

Some questions:
-What do you think of this development?
-Do you think Mohler paints an accurate picture of what is going on?
-What do you think is the root of this need for a Sunday School type meeting?
