Er... you do know that atheism is an absence of religious belief, don't you?

A-theism isn't a religious belief, it's a philosophical-position.

"Church" and "atheist" are antonyms. If you genuinely wanted to officiate at weddings etc whilst being atheist, you would become a properly-licensed registrar (or the legally-equivalent civil official recognised by the government of your choice).
The problem with that is some places have legislation in place that states that only a judge or religous figure may perfom weddings, and other similar events. All the Church of Atheism is is a method to get around this limitation and allow atheist ministersto perform weddings without spending years working for the government.

A church is just a group of people with the same beliefs.
. Nearly every definition of "church" that I find includes religion; usually Christian. Eg: # one of the groups of Christians who have their own beliefs and forms of worship # a place for public (especially Christian) worship... # church service: a service conducted in a house of worship... - wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn # The word church is frequently used to describe a building used for prayer, worship, ... specifically to those for Christian worship. - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church (building)
I would assume that they are using the word church to gain some sort of financial benefits, like all the televangelists that don't have to pay tax because they're a church, even when the cheques are made payable to them personally.
The Greek word translated "church" in the bible is "ecclesia" (don't know for sure how to spell it in English). It specifically means "called out", though the biblical context pretty much always dictates it to be a group capable of assembly. To call a group of organized atheists a "church" is pretty lame. Is a group of organized doctors a "coven"?
