An upcoming atheist hotline, meant for people struggling with their faith but have nowhere to turn, is a "wrong number whose service should be disconnected," said a Christian philosopher, pointing out that its backers lack philosophical rigor and find themselves at an intellectual impasse.
Recovering from Religion, a secular company seeking to provide people leaving their religious views with various resources, apparently has nothing to say about arguments for or against God's existence, said William Lane Craig, Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, Calif.
The secular group, along with the "New Atheist" movement in general, focus on the social effects of religion in an attempt to portray it in a negative way, Craig said in a statement Monday. The group's website, he pointed out, states that "many people" flee their religion because they "realize how much conflict religious belief creates."
Recovering from Religion hopes to raise $30,000 by June 30 for "The Hotline Project." The group has announced on its website that it is launching "a brand new campaign to … provide a valuable service for people struggling with their faith, with nowhere to turn."
