Atheists have long criticised devout followers of faith. But now it seems Atheism is stealing from that very religious tradition by erecting a temple of worship.

An “atheist temple”? Surely its function would be so broad as to be almost utterly pointless - hence the reason why we don’t have “theist temples”.
Devoting a building to an entire category of beliefs seems bizarre in the extreme.
