If you mean "you" in general, the only requirement of being an atheist is not believing (as opposed to rejecting, which is just a subset of atheism) in God. If you mean "you" personally, my answer is about the same. Everything else that I do is, strictly speaking, unrelated to atheism and quite possible without it. If you're asking if I'm part of an atheist group, the answer is no.

I don't go to church because I feel like I'd be mocking the religion if I went. (I am an atheist). I simply don't belong there so I shouldn't go there. There are some exceptions, of course. Like if I or someone else was getting married.

Agreed.

Er...I'm an atheist, and I go to church....and the sunday school afterwards - i'm not the only one as well...

there's really nothing wrong with it; I don't speak out during the middle of worship and say something like "GOD SUCKS, DUCKS RULE!" -_-; I actually do everything they do there, I even have my own bible and such; i just don't believe in the bible, there's nothing more, and nothing less...

Who cares... It's not like atheists are not allowed to enter or anything... We should be allowed to go wherever we want as long as we don't violate any rules...

How will the atheists protect themselves say from catholics?

Edit:

Example-- the fastest growing faith in America is no faith at all. And some atheist think they need a church.

There is a fact that some atheist may simply not be there to come out in the open and tell the people that they are atheist. If they are part of the family or community where attendance at religious worship is an expected norm, a person cannot avoid attending without signaling to everyone that their beliefs are no longer in sync with everyone's else's. At the very least, their attendance to traditional faith has changed: in some cases, that maybe perceived as enough to be treated as a form of betrayal or scandal. If a person reveals that they are in fact an atheist, it might be too much for some to accept. Rather than deal with so much drama and conflict, some atheist just continue to pretend that they believe and keep up appearances. What does this say about religion, it forces to lie about themselves in this way?

arguments allowed but just keep things cool. ☺

"Yes I go to the Church of atheist"

"Um..so what do you do there?"

"Burn bibles get drunk while having all nighter Halo marathons!"

"Is it to late for me to convert!"

Seriously a church for people who don't believe in anything? They got things like that, just go to a video game, comic book, or anime convention.

we dont need a church because we dont believe in a god or in something omnipotential
it would be a waste of money build a church for people who dont belive in those things
