Two British comedians have announced their plan to start an atheist “church,” known as The Sunday Assembly, to be offered for free once a month in London.
“We thought it would be a shame not to enjoy the good stuff about religion, like the sense of community, just because of a theological disagreement,” said Sanderson Jones, a stand-up comedian who hatched the idea for the “church” with fellow comedienne Pippa Evans.
The Londonist blog describes the monthly morning meeting, held at a former church in Islington known as The Nave, as a “godless gathering for people who want to hear funny and interesting people talk, sing songs and celebrate life.”
Okay, can’t tell if they are serious or if this is a joke. Then again, maybe its both.
