I met a lady in one of my atheist groups that had been laid off from her job and was on the verge of having her water turned off. As a last option after checking with other local groups who were out of funds she went to a local "Mega" church. The kind that takes up several acres and has thousands of members. They agreed to help her and were filling out the paper work when they asked her what church she attended. When she told them she was atheist they changed their mind and sent her away with no help. I know this is their money and they can do what they want, but should they have helped?

I am truly sorry for your experience. There is neer shame in asking and it is sad that a church would refuse to help one of their own members no matter how many others had been helped that month.
Desperate people won't avoid a church because they're atheist. You act as though atheist people are allergic to religious folk. She went to them because it was obvious with all their grandeur that they had money.
That is ignorance from lack of experience. Many churches with do this, as there are some that perpetually regurgitate highly judgmental mannerisms and habits.
