NDAA 2014: Christian Fundamentalist Congressman Tim Huelskamp Stamping out Military Religious Freedom Through Federal Legislation!! Unless You’re a Christian….then it’s okay

June 13, 2013 The extreme fundamentalists have convinced the members of Congress, and specifically the House of Representatives, that Mikey Weinstein and MRFF are anti-Christian activists despite the fact that over 96% of their clients are indeed Christian service members. Tim Huelskamp (pictured above) of Kansas proposed the "Huelskamp Amendment" to the National Defense Authorization Act 2014. The "Huelskamp Amendment" states: 1 SEC. 5__. MEETINGS WITH RESPECT TO RELIGIOUS … [Read more...]

Just Worm Food

The toughest job in the military? We've all seen it portrayed in fiction. Unfortunately, you or someone you know may have experienced it first hand. One of the hardest tasks any uniformed servicemember could ever perform: notifying the next of kin of a fallen comrade.  According to the U.S. Army, the "casualty notification team" will consist of  "the Casualty Notification Officer and a Chaplain". If the National Defense Authorization Act of 2014 passes with an amendment introduced by New … [Read more...]

It Appears Christian Supremacist Jonathan C. Dowty May Have Been Brought to Justice for Criminal Activity

For years, Major Jonathan C. Dowty has used his rank and his blog, Christian Fighter Pilot, to spread a message of hate and sedition.  Through that blog he regularly decried the terror he lived under...as a Christian being forced to serve with homosexuals.  He actively harassed subordinates, many of them clients of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, that did not conform to his "spiritually transformed military, with ambassadors for Christ in uniform, empowered by the Holy Spirit."  He … [Read more...]

Expanding the Team: Introducing the Assistant Director at Rock Beyond Belief

Greetings I have ideas on topics to post about however, after reading Casey's introduction I realized before getting started I should probably write introduction of my own. I don't know about you, I find it difficult sometimes to talk about myself. I am never without something to say as long as the topic is not me, :) My name is Cat Burns, I have been a non-believer throughout my life. It wasn't until 2007 when I took the "atheist" label. I started volunteering in the atheist community … [Read more...]

Even the Chaplains are afraid of the Fundamentalist Christians

Yes even the chaplains... I received one of my frequent emails from Mikey Weinstein over at MRFF. MRFF has been demonized constantly by the religious right in the last few weeks as being a hate organization and it couldn't be further from the truth. They've been nominated for NUMEROUS Nobel Peace Prizes and just recently were accepted into the CFC's donation drive. The CFC is the Combined Federal Campaign. Every year the command is required to give everyone in the military an opportunity to … [Read more...]

“You’re the first Atheist I’ve ever met”

Introductions are necessary My name is Casey Leavings and I am an active duty AIr Force member. I've been in for almost ten years and I have been an out and proud atheist for eight. I have been fortunate enough to have never been forced into the corner for my lack of beliefs. When I heard about the extreme pressures that others in uniform have been put under for holding the same beliefs I adhere to, I felt that I had no choice but to step into the activist movement and the blogosphere. These … [Read more...]

First Amendment 2.0: Congress shall make no law which respects the first amendment

The recent flurry shit-storm of news surrounding the myth of Christian persecution in the military has left many of our representatives in congress deluded about the realities of the aims of secular activists.  Through this conflagration, one story of hope has floated to the surface.  The story I'm referring to was the recent submission of an amendment to H.R. 1960 which would allow Humanist Chaplains to serve in our military.  After I saw this I was inspired to take a few seconds of my … [Read more...]

An atheists response to the repeal of DADT (old news but still entertaining)

This made me chuckle I was very happy for all my gay friends the moment DADT was repealed and put into full effect. I've got more than a few gay friends and it was an absolute travesty that they had to hide who they were for fear of being kicked out of the military. I remember a lot of rhetoric being thrown around about trying to reinstate it....because all those "out of the closet" gays can suddenly go back in. Anyways this was a fun little retort written by Casey Leavings, a fellow atheist … [Read more...]

Lake Elsinore, California gives the finger to Foxhole Atheists!

 SO LET'S DO ONE BETTER! I'm all about freedom of expression and freedom of speech! In fact I wholly support someone disagreeing with my view and giving me the finger if they truly feel that I am in the wrong. However....this goes far beyond freedom of expression. The City Council at Lake Elsinore have decided that a monument should be erected to honor veterans. This monument has passed with unanimous consent of the council and will be placed on public property. There's only one problem … [Read more...]
