National Atheist Party Cancels Convention. Goes to DNC

| 4 Comments

Tens and tens of people were disappointed when the National Atheist Party canceled their convention (NAPCON) due to lack of funds. CBS Connecticut reported that “Troy Boyle, the party’s president, announced on its website this bit of sad, disheartening news:

“After this year’s amazing Reason Rally, and flush with our successful recruiting and a spike in donations, we decided to hold our OWN secular event. NAPCON 2012 was supposed to be our biggest and best public event; our chance to show the U.S. that we could fund and organize a large, noteworthy and impressive ‘Secular Summit’ that would attract media buzz and even more interested members and donations. The reality is that we can’t,” Boyle said in the press release. “The donations simply aren’t there and if we went ahead with the event as planned, it would bankrupt us.”

So what was a godless party to do? Apparently, they hopped on a bus and went over to the Democratic National Convention where they tried to vote down God in the party’s platform along with Jerusalem being the capital of Israel.

They failed again. (Skip to the 1:50 mark to see the hilarious “railroading” of the agenda.)

Charles Spurgeon wrote: “I heard the story of a man, a blasphemer…an atheist, who was converted singularly by a sinful action of his. He had written on a piece of paper, “God is nowhere,” and ordered his child to read it, for he would make him an atheist too. The child spelled it, “God is n-o-w h-e-r-e. God is now here.” It was a truth instead of a lie, and the arrow pierced the man’s own heart.”

  1. Oh sweet, you decided to repost this.

    I didn’t even know about NAP until the first time you posted this, and honestly don’t care too much. Atheism isn’t really something you should be trying to launch a political platform from, and that’s why NAP will probably fade away. Well, really any third party isn’t going to go far, and there are plenty of political parties that use a religion as the cornerstone of their viewpoints. They still languish in obscurity. Not necessarily a matter of religious belief, but rather an element of the two-party system.

    Of course, you really shouldn’t be crowing about a small organization running into financial troubles.

  2. Group no one heard of cancels conference no one was going to….

  3. The word “apocryphal” springs to mind
