“Bow your fucking head down, recruit. Pray with the rest of us!”

Back in December I wrote about a fierce young Marine Corps recruit who was told that she couldn't have "ATHEIST" on her records and dogtags. I gave her some advice; she fought back, and won. She recently graduated from Boot Camp in top form. She had a blast despite the USMC's grueling 13 week training. It's clear that becoming a Marine is something she is quite proud of. If you'd like to congratulate her, do so in the comments here - I'm certain she'll see it. This is long, but certainly … [Read more...]

How come all the unicorns in the bible are dead?

The King James bible is my favorite. Not only is it the most poetic translation, KJV also has unicorns! Isaiah 34:7 And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness. That's my favorite of the bunch. There are seven more verses that refer to unicorns. Neat! Most literalist apologists that cling to KJV refer to unicorns as 'real' but mislabeled. Unicorns are 'actually' aurochs, the … [Read more...]

Dangerous messages sent to kids on US Navy bases

The original photograph shows a large advertisement for a Vacation Bible School on a US Navy base. Transportation is included. Equality is not. I'm not sure which base this photograph came from, but it's far from an isolated incident. Here's a write-up in the Periscope, an in-house PR rag for Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay - built on coastal Georgia. “Up, up, and away!” This familiar phrase sets the tone the 2012 Vacation Bible School program.  The Command Religious Program of … [Read more...]

Trolled by Sniper Jesus

It was actually Sniper Jesus that was apparently inserted into the chain of command at a Fort Bragg unit. I still think this was a real photo (the shadow is consistent, albeit from a smaller frame). However, I doubt that this picture would fly very long. It was probably either somebody goofing around, or otherwise trolling. That's why I crowdsourced the verification. Good eye, commenters / Facebook friends! If you know what unit this came from please contact me. I just want to … [Read more...]

Jesus above Obama in chain of command photos, is this real?

Word on the street is that this happened at Fort Bragg. If you know anything about where this photo was taken, please let me know. This is completely inappropriate. It's also illegal to affix religious symbols in, on, or outside of a chapel. This rule has been consistently applied to many contexts including other buildings, walls, doors, and even large outdoor areas on military bases. This is also a violation of EEO, and likely even considered political speech - during a heated election. … [Read more...]

U.S. Military being used as Government-Paid Missionaries

This is a shocking look at proselytizing in the US military. It's from the point of view of the culprits themselves - in their words. It's extremely creepy. www.youtube.com/embed/SB1UifGIqaw? Close allies, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), compiled this from various sources. Some are anonymous leaks, some are promotional videos filmed by military personnel. There are even a few clips from international news (the US media rarely covers this.) … [Read more...]
