When I was an ‘atheist’, this is why I didn’t call myself an atheist. And it’s why I find it so easy to ignore so many atheist perspectives on Christians today (see Reddit). If one doesn’t believe, then what is there to dislike? Humans acting badly in the name of religion? Hardly unique or remarkable. Not that their ire isn’t righteous - I’m a fan of the gentle rebuke - but what is indignation in the face of something that is merely a label to hide behind? Is the point that non-believers are not also bad at being kind? Or loving? Is it that hypocrisy only exists within a belief system? Anyway, I am a fan of this kind of atheism or rather “atheism”. I believe wholly that goodness and perspective exist in enlightenment, not exclusively within a belief. Some of my best friends are ‘atheists’  ; )

Documentary Film Funding - From Union Docs ‘Doc Fundamentals’

Spending Sunday nights at Union Docs in Brooklyn has proved extremely rewarding. Last week it was all the legal stuff we like to call mumbo jumbo until we’re faced with the mess we’ve made. Last night was as thorough a walk-through of financing documentaries as I’ve ever seen. From the simplest beginnings for the rookie to the most detailed map for the veteran blue chip PBS doc-maker, in two hours it was all crammed in. It gave such a complete overview of years of trekking through the seemingly uncharted territory of the world of doc funding, that I felt I had gained a bird’s eye view of the process that allowed me to see the benefits of all the paths offered.
