Historical examples include the leaders of most of the more oppressive communist regimes. Of course they'd just substituted the state for the church and opposed thinking for exactly the same reasons. Strictly speaking they were atheists but in a more accurate sense they're an idealogical cult.

Communists are not necessarily atheists. I come from a country where the guerilla communist groups were formed by a priest.

RE: Sunday Assemby seems to be growing fast
I'm waiting for a secular community group to form where membership is either free or has a low cost monthly fee. I just cannot get onboard with anything that runs on "suggested member donations".

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

If it was a discussion group or philosophy group like I've gone to in the past id be all for going on my own time. Nothing bad about doing basically what this "community" is but in person.
