By Peter Sellick, published 14/11/2017

He may concede that the Judaeo/Christian tradition has been the basis of our civilization and he may applaud that, but it is not for him.

Well Pete, don't apologise for your offensive post. I'm not offended at all.

But after all these years, it's nice to finally receive a few responsive lines from you.

I think that I failed to understand this article.

Is the article's main point that some (serious) atheists are more deeply religious than the average Christian, including clergy?

This is indeed a possibility, but if this is the case and the said atheists (despite their failure to use the correct terms) do so well and already walk with God, then why would you want to evangelise them?

I would really appreciate an answer.

"SSM becomes legalised; ; then by default the church that opposes homosexuality becomes extinct "
The Church will NOT approve of priests marrying his altar boy, that would be atheism.

The ticket sales were down, because the keynote speakers and their preferred topic, were nearly as interesting as flat beer already acquiring a vinegar after taste and stale cheese doing its best impression of serious green mould!

Take the last first and wash it down with the second, just to understand how uninviting intellectually flawed, creator denying, atheist fundamentalists really are!

I think you put up a good case for atheism Sells. Those people who attack the idea of atheism don't seem to realise what a broad church we represent. Most of us have been brought up within the rather narrow confines of one of the diverse Christian denominations, but have come to realize that it is all based on fiction. This particularly true for the Roman Catholic church with all its saints, dogmas and rules, many of which are observed in the breech.

Yuyutsu,

The most important difference between atheists and Christians is not that they believe/disbelieve in a supernatural being but that Christians know that they are sinners and atheists do not.

Alternatively, Christians do not count themselves righteous but, I think that many atheists do.

It is also not about who is religious. If you have been attending to my articles you will know that I believe that Christianity is the end of religion. Atheists may be more religious than Christians because Christians are not supposed to be religious at all.

Religion was nailed to the cross, as was power politics etc because it was the "church" at the time and secular power that framed Jesus for blaspheme. One cannot go back. Religion is not the answer but faith is, even if it is something we cannot do.
