A local church currently has posted on their sign:
Any clue what they mean to get across by stating this? By definition, atheism is:
- the doctrine or belief that there is no God.
- disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings.
OK, so, “prophet” has meanings other than one who speaks for a supreme being, but that doesn’t seem to be what they are after.
The play on words prophet/profit seems to be a slam on established religion. Atheism has no dues, most churches do, but why would a church wish to point this out?
(I had no idea where to put this, and would have no problem with it being moved.)
