We ran across an article this morning at that discussed a movement forming across the country where "spiritual non-theistic" (an oxymoron?) student groups are demanding "Secular Humanist Chaplains". Really.

Apparently, some atheists want guidance on how to believe in, well, nothing! (Ok, I jest, because the article states that they're actually seeking someone to help them be more "spiritually-informed ethical humans" - but without having to pay for a professional counselor. Sounds like a joke, but it's not.)

It seems to me like it really isn’t a chaplain at that point. It’s akin to calling a horse a cow.
