I'd really love for a "freedom from religion" sect in my area. I know quite a few atheist but no idea how to start something.. any ideas??
religion ... pure and faultless is this: to help widows and orphans in need and avoiding worldly corruption. James 1:27
Make sure there is no widows, orphans, and worldly corruption in your your area and you would be free from religion.
No widows, no orphans to help no religion, go enjoy golf on the werkend. Unless you are apart of the non-golfers association.
You could contact other groups not in your area for advice on how to start one up. Check several and then work up a plan for yourself. I agree with Allamanda, don't call it a sect, that's a religious connotation.
Like any group, have a mission statement, goals, rules and behavior expectations. There are places that might let you meet for free on a regular basis. If it's a cafe then as a courtesy you might mention that as a free venue with food available it would be nice of the group to help support the sponsor as a thank you. Have fun!
