While evangelical Christians are known for celebrating faith in God at mega-churches, now atheists are celebrating their lack of faith in God in a “mega-church” setting.

The important thing to notice is that atheists are finally admitting that atheism is a religion. In fact, it's the federally mandated state religion per the rulings of the SCOTUS. As you can see, "separation of church and state" only applies when the religion is Christianity ... not when the religion is atheism.

WTF is a "road scholar"? Did you really use that term to try to imply someone else is stupid or lacking in intelligence? By the way, it's "RHODES Scholar", oh brilliant one.

Here is an ON TOPIC news story from today:
Hawaii to become 15th state to grant gay marriage — leapfrogging Illinois
Hugh Gentry / Reuters
By Miranda Leitsinger, Staff Writer, NBC News
Hawaii’s Senate on Tuesday passed same-sex marriage legislation in an historic ballot in the state where gays and lesbians couples first sought the right to wed more than 20 years ago.
The bill, approved 19-4, heads to Gov. Neil Abercrombie, a supporter of same-sex marriage who is expected to sign the measure into law on Wednesday, making Hawaii the 15th state to grant gay marriage. Weddings can begin Dec. 2.
Fourteen states plus the District of Columbia allow same-sex marriage. Hawaii’s ballot comes a week after lawmakers in Illinois voted to approve same-sex marriage, but Ill. Gov. Pat Quinn has said he will sign their bill on Nov. 20.
Passage of the Hawaiian bill “marks a pivotal moment in our state’s history, a moment enshrined in equality and justice,” Senate Majority Leader Brickwood Galuteria, who introduced the bill, said in a statement.
The Senate first approved the legislation and then sent it to the House, where the vote was seen as the key ballot.
In a rare move, the House allowed the public to speak during the debate: More than 1,000 people, most of them actually opposed to same-sex marriage, spoke over five days, providing 56 hours of testimony in what some referred to as a public or citizen’s “filibuster.”
Nearly 24,000 written testimonies — evenly split between opponents and supporters — were also submitted.
Most opponents were concerned about religious groups possibly being forced to solemnize or celebrate same-sex marriages.
House lawmakers tacked on exemptions to the bill allowing religious groups and affiliated nonprofits to be exempt from having to provide goods, services or facilities for the solemnization or celebration of same-sex marriages. They will be immune from legal liability, too. The exemptions were modeled after similar language in Connecticut’s gay marriage law.
The Senate accepted those changes.
“Working together with our colleagues in the State House we have come to a compromise which provides a balance between religious freedom and equal rights,” Galuteria said.
The Aloha state was at the forefront of the gay marriage debate back in the early 1990s, when three same-sex couples sued for the right to wed. Though the courts sided with the couples, a voter approved amendment to the state constitution in 1998 mandated that only the legislature could decide who gets to marry, thereby nullifying the court case.
