I am uncomfortable with the idea of joining a church with a minister, even if it preaches secular humanism, yet we need representation. We need to raise awareness. We need to scare people, like the hell-fire preaching pastors. We need to let non-religious people know what they can do to stop the disturbing trends.
We are surrounded by secular ‘theologians’, but do we also have the secular ‘missionaries’? Do we have individuals who can also rock the pulpit in a language that people feel and understand? We need this. We need them to meet in schools, convincing impressionable students looking to form their own identity apart from their parents’. We need to be there to give them a rational ‘mythology’ to help them understand life’s difficulties.
Christian group leaders meet together to prepare agendas to get what they want done. When needed, they can mobilize their congregations. Can this happen among us and like-minded individuals? Is this no longer possible when we get too knowledgable? Would we all just find it silly?
