I use of the term "religion" in its wider naturalistic (non-supernaturalist) sense. The way I like to express it is that "religion" is the upholding, realisation and actualisation of the positive (and often the negative) side of our human nature.

I have attended a number of gatherings in Melbourne of The Sunday Assembly. Rather than it being an Atheist Church, as labelled by the media, I find it to be simply a godless church.
