Atheist group set to launch 1-800 hotline for those ‘Recovering from Religion’

Drug and alcohol hotlines are pretty common so an atheist group is working on a 1-800 line to help those wishing to “flee their religion.”

Atheists and secularists are preparing to launch the “Hotline Project,” an effort to reach out to individuals attempting to escape their faith. Launched by Recovering From Religion, an organization that provides emotional support for the newly-non-religious, the Hotline Project is pledging to offer service to those in spiritual crisis 24-hours per day, seven days per week.

atheist hotline project recovering from religion“The process of leaving religion is usually not an overnight experience, as many of you know,” the project’s website proclaims. “Recovering from Religion receives countless emails and phone calls from people seeking help on their journey away from faith.”

Using Mark Twain and his quote: “Faith is believing what you know ain’t so” the group is reaching out across the Internet, especially through social media.

Recovering From Religion offers support groups for those living in America, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. In addition, courses and book studies are provided.

The 1-800 number simply adds to this dynamic.

“The Hotline will provide trained volunteers to answer a toll-free hotline and provide real time, caller-specific support to each person who contacts us, 24/7,” an official description reads. “We will offer national, regional, and local resources — a secular support network they can utilize.”

In order to fund the new hotline initiative, the organization is trying to raise $30,000 before June 30th.

  3. Recovering From Religion NEEDS TO ABANDON THIS “Hotline Project.”

    BEING ATHEIST MEANS ONE HAS PERFORMED AN INTENSE ANALYSIS OF HER/HIS LIFE, AND CAME TO THE CONCLUSION ALL FORMS OF LIFE ARE PART OF A CONTINUOUS CYCLE WHOSE END MAY NEVER COME; OR, IF IT DOES COME, IT WILL OCCUR IN A MANNER BEYOND HUMAN UNDERSTANDING. BEFORE WE WERE BORN, WE KNEW NOTHING BECAUSE WE DID NOT EXIST. AFTER WE DIE, WE WILL STILL KNOW NOTHING BECAUSE WE NO LONGER EXIST.

    NO TWO ATHEISTS ARE ALIKE. THIS HOTLINE WOULD ALLOW THE ATHEISTIC VIEWS OF OTHERS TO “SCULPT” THE MINDS OF INDIVIDUALS, THEREBY, NEGATING AN INDIVIDUAL’S CONNECTION TO ATHEISTIC THOUGHT – WHICH CAN LEAD TO A RETURN TO THEIST THOUGHT, DUE TO THE DISILLUSIONMENT CREATED BY TRYING TO MAKE ANOTHER ATHEIST’S VIEWS YOUR OWN.

    I have wondered if religion is more addictive than heroin or cocaine.
