I went to see The Soloist last weekend. I didn't really expect for the film to be good, but what I really didn't expect was to be slightly offended by it. There is a scene in which the main character, Steve Lopez, is interviewing a man who is the spokesperson for Atheists of Greater L.A., which has volunteered to clean up a highway in Los Angeles. Lopez asked the man if atheists non-worshipped and attended non-meetings since they are united by nonbelief. The spokesperson stuttered a little bit and appeared to be unable to think of a reply to Lopez' sarcastic question. He was not the kind of person who would be a spokesperson for any sort of group or organization and especially not atheists. Maybe I shouldn't be offended by this and should instead just be happy that Hollywood is acknowledging atheists. However, I'm not sure that acknowledgement is such a good thing if it is negative and inacurrate.
