Detroit— A Rochester Hills country club that canceled an appearance last fall by an internationally known atheist was sued in federal court Friday.

The Center for Inquiry-Michigan, an organization dedicated to secularism and science, sued Wyndgate Country Club for allegedly denying use of its facilities to the public based upon religious beliefs.

The center wants unspecified damages and to block the country club from discriminating against others for religious reasons, according to the lawsuit.

A club official could not be reached for comment immediately Friday.

1. Good luck with that

Don't see they are going to win this.

But there is no atheist bias...

I get sick of this shit.

2. I was there! Well, NOT there....

We had to go somewhere else.

This was actually the FIRST time that Dr. Dawkins had had a venue
shut him out after signing a contract.

Maybe I'll get my money back! Although it was a great evening....
