I’ll just leave this here. Subtle change is very subtle.
I’m all for exposing the ‘No atheists in foxholes’ BS for what it is. Some people prefer to counter with long winded debunking, or lists of atheist who served in the armed forces. And I like those things too.
But I prefer to take the piss out of the myth with humor.
Condescending Theist: “You know there are no atheists in foxholes, right?”
Sly guy: “You mean Fox-News not fox-hole. That’s the fundie news network, so I wouldn’t expect any atheists. I guess they do have a Scientologist too, though.”Condescending Theist: “No, I meant…wait what?”
Sly guy: “Greta Van Susteren. Didn’t know that? Yep. She’s good people.”
Condescending Theist: “Well I wasn’t talking about Fox News.”
Sly guy: “Are you sure? I’m an atheist, and they keep me updated about the war I seem to be having on their Christmas.”
