Brian McLaren: I am an atheist
No, not really. But that's the opening line of a new song/music video Brian has put together for an upcoming CD "Songs for a Revolution" in preparation for his "Everything Must Change Tour". The idea is that he is an atheist in regards to certain false conceptions of God (the god of greed, of violence, of oppression, of exclusion), but still believes in the God of justice, mercy, mystery, beauty, etc...

Here it is from YouTube:

Musically it's not a great song - and I only occasionally appreciate that style of music anyway - but the words are good and thought provoking. I am an atheist towards those kinds of gods too.
