There are a lot of stories out there like this one:
On Monday, Matt Wilbourn, the founder of the Muskogee Atheist Community in Oklahoma, made a $100 donation in his organization’s name to the Murrow Indian Children’s Home. Later that day, his phone rang.
“I received a phone call an hour later from the lady who accepted my donation earlier telling me that her director asked her to call me and tell me that my donation was not accepted,” Wilbourn wrote on a Go Fund Me page. “She went on to say that they are funded by the American Baptist Churches Association and accepting a donation from atheists would go against everything they believe in.”
“I emailed the director and even told her that I’m raising the amount to $250. I’m awaiting her response,” he added.
I’d like to take a good look at this story when I get the time, but for now, I was looking for help. All the stories (which seem to have begun with a blog post from our “friendly” atheist) speak of this group – the Muskogee Atheist Community. Yet no story, nor Mehta’s blog, ever link to the “Muskogee Atheist Community.” So I googled ” Muskogee Atheist Community” in search of its web page. Of course, you’ll get page after page referring to this story, but when I restrict the search for something prior to June 1, 2016, I still can’t find its web page. So then I search FaceBook and can’t find it there either. The Muskogee Atheist Community doesn’t seem to have a FB page.
Right now, I don’t see any evidence that the Muskogee Atheist Community actually exists outside this story. Then again, I’m the type who will lose my glasses and find them sitting on my face, so I could be overlooking something obvious. If anyone can find the web page or FB page or even a twitter account for this group, can you please post the link in the comments section? Thanks.
