19,000 service members raped or sexually assaulted in 2010

You may have seen Jon Stewart speak about the insanity from Fox News personality Liz Trotta. It was brutal. He championed the natural facepalm reaction to her comments in a glorious way. It was funny, but it still made you want to cry, or scream. I actually yelled at my TV. media.mtvnservices.com/embed/mgid:cms:video:thedailyshow.com:408330 Crazy talk. Reap has an article from last year that noticed the trend. Representative Jackie Speier,  who also told the  House of … [Read more...]

DoD budget: Spiritual Fitness test – $125 mil, Rape prevention $113 mil

McClatchy Newspapers were quoted in this report from worst person ever, Liz Trotta at Fox News. And the feminists have also directed them, really, to spend a lot of money. They have sexual counselors all over the place, victims' advocates, sexual response coordinators. Let me just read something to you from McClatchy Newspapers about how much this position on extreme feminism is costing us. "The budget for the Defense Department's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office leapt from $5 … [Read more...]

Antimatter universe with anti-people predicting an anti-anti-christ

I received a message from a generally polite, but confused person named Jamie. Much of the letter was about something else, but he brought up a common misconception about atheists. "You must believe that it is True that there is no God.  Which logically means that the contradictory statement that there is a God is false." - Jamie C. My reply: Atheists do not claim to know “there is definitely no god(s)”… one can’t prove a negative. Just like you can’t prove that god is not a … [Read more...]

Fort Bragg’s MAJ Ray Bradley seeks recognition for humanists

An associated press article that ran in dozens of newspapers nationwide tells the story of US Army Major Ray Bradley. Major Bradley is currently fighting to get 'humanist' on the military's official list of recognized religious preferences. RALEIGH, N.C. - Soldiers who don’t believe in God can go to war with “Atheist” stamped on their dog tags, but humanists and others with various secular beliefs are still officially invisible in the Army. Maj. Ray Bradley is applying to be the … [Read more...]

Army brings the first ever Torah Scroll to Afghanistan, tells the world

This is coming from the Army's website of pre-packaged videos for the media to pick up. www.dvidshub.net/video/embed/137199 It's all well and good to be respectful of fallen soldiers, and to embrace diversity among the religious preferences. But to brag about the fact that you brought the first Torah Scroll into a Muslim nation? Probably not a good idea. This is one time that I hope they just remove the video, before some Islamic fundamentalists get a hold of it. Usually, I'd suggest … [Read more...]

Faith itself is the tree without roots. It’s grounded in nothing.

Last week, I brought you a video from Chaplain COL Lembke, referring to Spiritual Fitness. In it, he claimed that, "Life without faith is like a tree without roots". Here it is again: www.youtube.com/embed/CV5BgQVvp4E? There was some spectacular replies from military members, veterans, and our supporters on my Facepalm wall. Gregory S: More like "life without faith is like a dog without a cell phone." Rich W: ‎... or a fish without a bicycle, or a human swimming without an attached … [Read more...]

Air Force atheist empowers others – ¡Viva la Revolución!

USAF Staff Sergeant Dan Rawlings was directly responsible for the atheist holiday sign on Travis Air Force Base. He's been doing the podcast circuit, and recently checked in with the Angry Atheist for a chat. You can listen to it right here: http://angryatheist.info/?powerpress_embed=515-podcast&powerpress_player=default Afterwards, he started getting the inevitable "me-toos!" and "I thought I was the only one!" trickle of emails. This is empowerment. Change is impossible without … [Read more...]

How does this Marine tie his shoes? In little Nazis.

Chris Rodda has an amazing post about this image. The official story is that all of the Marines thought the SS stood for Sniper Scouts. Now I do believe that could be true about most of them. But at least ONE had to purchase this flag. Chris Rodda explains how she tracked down the exact website that this was purchased on. Guess what they mainly sell? Nazi shit. Obviously the Marine Corps doesn't want or deserve an association with the Nazi SS. I think it's sad that one hateful … [Read more...]

You clowns are nothing but idiots

Troll e-mail has increased dramatically over at the revolution festival's shiny new website. Practice makes perfect, I suppose This is a disgusting thing you are doing. I fought for the right to practice my faith as a born again CHRISTIan. The wickedness you are doing is anti-American. -Douglas Nicholas But I'm not sure how I'd ever be able to deny your right to practice your faith as a born again CHRISTIan. You do not have the right to proselytize as part of your official government job. … [Read more...]
