PBS coverage of Rock Beyond Belief

Check it out! Rachel Medley’s soundbites were triumphant and prescient – despite some setbacks RBB faced at getting the Golden Knights to agree to jump. I’m comfortable with my own comments, as well. I’ve been the victim of unethical editing before, and I’m glad to say this is not one of those times. My favorite [Read More...]

PBS will air their coverage of the military atheist festival this weekend

PBS sent a team out to Fort Bragg to cover the festival and interview me. It’s for their long running Religion and Ethics Newsweekly program. It seemed to go really well so keep an eye out. The show airs at different days and times in different markets (and is absent in a few). They’ve made [Read More...]

The atheist Vietnam veteran’s reply

Yesterday, I posted about the Christian troll who said that atheists all die in foxholes – but god protects Christians from death. Bart Centre, author of The Atheist Camel replied: Good reply Justin. When I was in Nam I saw a lot of Christians die. One guy was so busy praying during an assault on our [Read More...]

Facebook super-fail: only Christians survive in a foxhole

Larry M. says I’m a ‘dummy’ that’s going to get ‘wacked’ (sic) in a foxhole because… I’m not a Christian. He’s also grateful that he doesn’t have to be the guy who carries my body back to the FOB. Atheists are just too damned heavy! At least he accepts that there are indeed atheists in [Read More...]

Really, Fort Bragg…Salvation Army is okay, but not atheists?

When Fort Bragg denied our plan to collect canned food at the recent Rock Beyond Belief festival, the news went viral, and was even front-paged at reddit. If you haven’t read it already, you really should take a look at that article. I broke down the regulations that their lawyers were ‘creatively interpreting’ in their [Read More...]

LOLWUT? Please tell me there is video of this! GREENSBORO, N.C. – The day after Newt Gingrich was bit by a penguin at a zoo, he acknowledged he is “the underdog” and said his campaign began renting their donor list because they needed money. … Following a tour of the NASCAR museum, Gingrich said he spoke [Read More...]

The writing is on the wall at boot camp (literally)

A brand new foxhole atheist sent me a few pictures from his cell phone. He’s in ‘hell week’ or ‘reception week’ of basic training. In a few days, his phone will be confiscated by his drill sergeants. He’ll get it back when he’s a soldier. This is Fort Jackson, SC. These posters are not government [Read More...]

Nightly ‘non-sectarian’ prayer aboard USS Abraham Lincoln in Hebrew?

I’ve been screaming that there is no such thing as ‘non-sectarian’ prayer for years. There is no universal method of prayer, and many religions don’t even have such a thing. Still, the conventional wisdom in the military is that as long as you don’t say “Jesus” it’s somehow legal for them to pray at you [Read More...]
