I'm going to the churches. To see their architecture. Or when we have concert. We're just atheists, we're not enemies.

Also atheists have no need to group themselves under church, simply because they don't follow higher deity.

Atheist are people who don't believe in God. Why would they gather? Sure they could all get together like a discussion group but a church is where holy things happen, there's nothing holy about atheism. Missed attendence from any organization at all would shock anybody but I think the whole guilt thing usually is more likely when that person is well known in the group.
Religion is not some meaningless act, only if you make it that way. Any group or organization is as powerful as it's people behind it. For those who are just there for the hay ride benifit nothing at all and misrepresent the entire group.

Most Atheists who goes to church living in denial, but of course there are various circumstances. As for Atheist "churches," they're not a place of worship, just a place for meeting. Technically, it isn't a church, but I guess that's just the common word.

some atheists are MADE to go to church by family or just the need to provide an example for their children. i have a friend who only goes to church because he doesnt want to have nothing to tell when his children start asking things, so maybe its sort of an easy way out. "go with the flow"

Well lets see i dont think Catholics are attacking anyone hehe, its not like we go around asking people to join our church.

One must pause and think twice before making any presumptions on atheist habits.

Churches are nothing more than places in which people of the same ideals and beliefs congregate. Who are we to say that atheists don't assemble at any given area? It is ignorant to assume that churches would only refer to an infrastructure filled with idols, saints and a gathering of people spouting incantations.

Who are we to know if an atheist is amongst us during a Christian mass? After all, one could become an atheist by thinking and living the ideals of an atheist.

atheism is not equated with the fundaments of a religious belief.Its more so an expansive view point as to see the world.The whole point of is church is the affirmation of communing with god.Plus its ceremonious so its rather dependent on an indiviudal basis rather than a categorization that no atheists go church.Atheism doesn't revel in face it gives an optional and less spurious way of thinking.So really it has no government such as christianity so it cannot be comprisable as defect or opposition as to not going to church.
