SAN FRANCISCO (RNS) While the recent Atheist Film Festival is the only explicitly atheist festival in the U.S., it is part of a larger trend of Humanist and Freethought film festivals taking their place along Jewish and Christian ones. By Kimberly Winston.

    “Atheists are not well-represented by Hollywood” what a load of rubbish, that and humanism is pretty much the only viewpoint they’ve portrayed, minus a few exceptions, since the seventies.

    It is truly sad to know that there are people out there that don’t believe in the GOD who created them in HIS image and likeness. Gen 1:27 So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Even though these people created a festival (idolatry), the grace of God is keeping them to see another day, because of what Jesus did for them at the cross. Each one that was at that festival is going to have to confess that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Saviour. Their knee is going to bow.
    Those that retain the Word of God, God said, “Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge , God gave them over to a reprobate mind , to do those things which are not convenient.

    Great article. I always read the comments after, and find it amusing that people always want to argue a point against what they just read. Quoting the bible after an article about Atheism and Humanism is pointless in the extreme.
    I live in south Georgia and I wish there were a movie festival like this closer to home, I’d really love to attend, and it makes me very happy to know that these things exist.

    It is always nice to know that my fellow atheists are really enjoying what they are doing. I wish people from India too respect atheists and realize the true meaning of humanity.

    Latosha Anderson: Say, Latosha, whilst you’re at quoting scripture, let’s give equal time to the rest of your “good” book. “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.” – Leviticus20:13, KJV. “And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them.” -Deuteronomy 7:2

    Feel free to add your rebuttal. I simply can’t wait to read it!
