Join our Church of Art and Apathy when you get good and ready, or around-to-it. This is the official church for those that don't wish to identify with a specific religion. For those that feel that atheism and agnosticism are just too much damm work. Others who believe that their religion solves all their problems, need not apply. We are a relatively New Religion with new attitudes. We are Apathists. We seek no converts. We distribute no pamphlets. We ring no door bells. The Church of Art and Apathy was thought about by its Founders for several years, before they decided to organize on December 26th, 1968, they decided not to become tax exempt, nor claim any guidance from any divine source.
In 1979 they decided to look around for a suitable church site, but that effort proved to be too much trouble, and besides they really didn't care where they met anyway. The founders thought they should have a clergy person, but so far all that applied were rejected. They asked stupid questions about our not having a prayer book with writing in it. Some complained that we didn't have a Symbol or a Logo identifying our religion. Some wanted us to light candles, bless wine, chant, sway. kneel, pray or in general "carry on " like mainstream religions....all of these candidates for the clergy person were rejected.
We soon will be celebrating the 37th year of our founding. We Apathists encourage those that share our deeply rooted apathy to think about joining our church as non-active members. We seek no donations nor offerings.... you keep your money, and we'll keep ours. As we have no mother church, postal address, telephone number, or website, we are sometimes difficult to locate.
However if you have faith, and are not in any big rush to join our Church of Art and Apathy, you are the type of person that could benefit by being an Apathist. We are happy to say that in almost 37 years, not one of our members has been called "a dirty Apathist " to their face, they have demanded, and received “apple fritters” as their religious rights, in prisons and university cafeterias, and our Religion is not part of any college course on “Comparative Religions “, and as far as we know, none of our faithful have been healed, saved, or converted. Some have rented from Avis but we consider that as free will. Someday we would like to sponsor our own TV ministry, but we haven’t figured out as yet what to preach about. We strongly believe that one should Not take YES for an answer…..but if they do, they do.
We do have a motto: Don’t Bother Us…and We Won’t Bother You.
