Another debate-ending story on whether or not it is important to get ATHEIST on your records, rather than the inaccurate and inappropriate NO-REL-PREF.
Ok guys, here is perspective: my sons father was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan 2 years ago. He had no religious preference on his papers. The army sent a chaplain to tell me and pray with my sons. I was forced in what was already a horrible experience to politely demand that the chaplain be made to stand quietly as we did not share his beliefs. They also sent a chaplain to his service. The problem is, is that no preference is not a real statement and is not really respected by the military.
