    The interfaith people seem to think that as long as each of the major religions has a seat at the table, it doesn't matter if the rest of us do, especially those of us who are non-believers.

    You want them to say that.

    How ridiculous.

      And I base this on the fact that atheists and agnostics are often excluded from interfaith organizations and public activities.  How often do you tune into a public event like the 9/11 commemorations and see an atheist or agnostic up at the podium with the Christian, Jewish and Muslim clerics?

        although different religions disagree on a lot of points, atheists (and to an extent agnostics) deny the whole premise. It kinda reminds me of that Futurama bit, with the popplers? And they are on that 4-panel splitscreen talk show, and somebody goes, "slow down, nobody here is saying we shouldn't eat ANY meat..." and the hippie in one of panels exasperatedly goes, "I am! I'm saying that!" and they all talk over him? Anybody?

        •  LOL, I remember that episode. (0+ / 0-)

          But yeah, it's like they want to pretend that we nonbelievers don't exist.
