US Army just punked all the local Justin Bieber fans at Fort Meade

Fort Meade, Maryland is home to the National Security Agency (NSA). Clearly, they've got some real 'smart guys' working there. The official Fort Meade Facebook page just announced a surprise visit from a ridiculous cast of characters. It was a 'short notice opportunity'. Apparently, a few people actually showed up. They didn't think it was funny... which makes it even funnier. Team Meade - NOW ANNOUNCING A SHORT NOTICE OPPORTUNITY!!! In a surprise promotional event for their … [Read more...]

Local church harassing soldiers at Fort Lewis says, “We don’t care about laws”

FORT LEWIS, WA (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) - A group of zealots is infiltrating Fort Lewis regularly for soul-saving raids. They arrive on the base in multiple vehicles in small groups and recruit for their church. This is illegal, and they know it. This is a follow up from one of the soldiers who were harassed and followed by a church group in their vehicles. The car followed him as he walked to the barracks from the on-post Burger King. For reference, here's the first message I … [Read more...]

Soldiers harassed about Jesus while walking on post, followed home

I just got a depressing message from an active duty soldier: Wow. One of the churches here on post is really pushing things here. I was stopped by a car while walking back from Burger King and they asked me if I wanted to come to church with them. I politely denied and they asked me if I believed on god, "no, I don't" I replied. "Why not?!?" He exclaimed. I told him that was a conversation that neither of us had time for and certainly not one I wanted to have in the middle of the street. Now I … [Read more...]

HomePost's Beth Ford Roth writes: A transgender woman named Elizabeth Tremblay, who deserted the Marines 31 years ago when she was Pvt. Donald Tremblay, learned today she will get a discharge "with honorable conditions." HomePost has the full story including a short video interview. That interview was done before the Marine Corps decided her fate. I think you can tell she really loved being a Marine.

Reddit co-founder’s suicide prompts whitehouse.gov petition

Co-founder of reddit Aaron Swartz hanged himself. The 26 year old was struggling with depression and the fear of decades in prison over what amounts to 'checking out millions of library books'.

Military members, does your PX / BX sell these awful items?

I've been getting reports of questionable items available at Post Exchange / Base Exchange stores on military bases. We've had mixed luck in the past, for various reasons. What we're looking for are certain books way beyond the standard Bible-variants (365-day, various translations, etc.) Specifically, if you see anything from David Barton on a military base, such as The Jefferson Lies, contact me immediately. Take pictures if possible, and let me know where and when in your … [Read more...]

Americans United calls Marine Corps out for discrimination against atheists

"Evasive Action." It's more than just a clever play on words by Americans United blogger Simon Brown. It's also an accurate summary of the situation at California Marine Corps base, Camp Pendleton. They're putting a tremendous amount of time, personnel, and other government resources to support massive evangelical concerts and other events. This is only legal *if* they promise to provide the same support to all other groups. Camp Pendleton rejected our atheist-themed concert for laughable … [Read more...]
