Cue the assholes who will blame this on the atheists. They don’t want to help in their community, of course! They just want publicity. After all: if I don’t read the article, I can assert that if they really wanted to help, they could just do so quietly!

On a more reality-based note: I’m betting this ‘church’ gets secular funding. I bet the management, given the pattern these types of ‘christians’ display, are very well paid to proselytize their religion while excluding members of the tax-paying community, based on religious bigotry and the childishly insecure need to assert their supremacy. Again, using other people’s money to do so.

Asshole here. Did you read the article? This is related back to the Upcountry group in our last go-around. One might almost think there had been communication of an idea.

What a self centred child you are.

I have no idea what an Upcountry group is but the not-for-profit christian Kansas City Mission Rescue is in Kansas City Missouri. When I saw the story this morning (in Kansas City) it was posted as the Mission group only wanted christians working for it and was upset to find that some of the meals-on-wheels volunteers were atheist. A member of the Mission, Julie Larocco, has spoken with local press claiming that the meals served are with the message “God loves you and you are not alone” and answering questions about god is against athiests convictions. The rescue group is looking for volunteers but only christians should apply. Larocco updated her comments mid morning saying that the atheist group had helped the last two years and had delivered meals without removing religious literature that is delivered with meals. She had no issue with the group but claimed she was trying to give others a chance to volunteer and she hoped the atheist group would help next year.

City Mission is definitely backtracking and trying to downplay both the message they originally gave the press and some on-line comments that christian supporters think non-christians are evil. Although one christian claimed that Thanksgiving is a christian holiday and allowing atheists to deliver meals is a conflict of interest.

oooh! Hello! Yes I think my first was a hit-N-run comment. I’ll try to do better, er, more.

This story is very different from the Upcountry (Spartanburg, SC) story because said atheists were allowed to volunteer last Thanksgiving and now they’re not.

If Christian groups only want their own “kind” to volunteer, they shouldn’t ask the public… I think that move assumes a Christian hegemony of sorts.

But I also think atheist groups should just wise up and start their own federally-funded tax shelters (aka “churches,” “charities”).
