Atheists start a Megachurch

These people decided to get together on Sundays just like some of used to do in something we called the Worldwide Cypher. Our mission was to learn about the World around us through a Hip Hop perspective. It was also a celebration of all things positive and constructive. Similarly atheists have decided to take back Sundays to celebrate life and maybe one day perform marriages, funerals and naming ceremonies. This is what we contemplated during the release of the Gospel. Now if Mormonism is a religion and this idea they call the Sunday Assembly takes off and becomes a religion in order to get the tax benefits and what not, should HH reconsider it? Before you solidify that thought, let me ask you to consider one more thing. The problem with religion is not just blind faith, but corrupt leadership. Leaders are the problem most often in any religious order. Its that whole thing about power corrupting, and it’s true. We have no protection against that. If we could get together to build, communicate and celebrate life every week that would likely become something similar to a religion. But the minute we start setting apart leaders as worshipful masters we will be sunk. Sadly, there are those who would push the deification of popular figures in HH to the detriment of the group overall and that is sort of what happened dealing with the Gospel of Hip Hop and why I stepped back. Fanatics would rather worship a master than follow his example in their own way. Teachers and scholars are great, masters not so much. If we could get the movement less top heavy, I think it might look like this, just more Hip Hop…
