UPDATED: Delusions of Relevancy…

UPDATE (original report below)Todd Starnes has produced a followup report where, despite an inaccurate and intentionally misleading headline, he exhibits a temporary bit of sanity by reporting exactly what I stated in my original report.  Starnes admits that the Army did not categorize the AFA as a hate group and that the slideshow presentation was locally produced without input from official policy or higher leadership.  Read for yourself here:Pentagon admits Christian ministry is not a … [Read more...]

Family Research Council and their Values Voter Summit

Here's a little clip that's interesting. It's the military panel put on by the hate-group FRCIn it you'll notice the now exposed liar Senior Master Sgt Monk. The DOD recently brought out a report stating that he was not relieved of command or fired. He fabricated all the events that transpired as he was scheduled to PCS to another unit many many months prior to the supposed "event" having taken place.If you have 30 minutes to waste go ahead and watch this mindless drivel. Even if you … [Read more...]

The Chaplaincy Shortage and the Great Crock of BS

army-poster-600x398-620x320

Chaplains In order to become a chaplain there are a few requirements one must fulfill. And with the recent "controversy" surrounding these Chaplains being placed on leave without pay and whatnot I thought there needed to be some clarification. Some of the more right-wing disengenuous folks are trying to push this narrative that Chaplains are being forced out of the military and leaving service members without any 'spiritual support'.What I find interesting is that the same people bitching … [Read more...]

A guest post – “Absolutes and the Atheist Divide” by Matt Facciani

Unknown-1

All the infighting makes sense from a scientific perspective Fighting within the secular movement has unfortunately been all too common lately. Friendships have been lost, alliances have been broken, and terrible things have been said in situations where people are in 99% agreement. People are very quick to deal in absolutes which are quite harmful for our movement. Many good people do not even want to be involved because of all the unnecessary drama. Other good people are losing interest fast. … [Read more...]

Air Force AcademyIn my last post I alerted everyone to a problematic email sent out by an Air Force Master Sergeant. The Air Force has capitulated away from unconstitutional official policy and have agreed to, once again, allow graduating cadets to omit the "oath to god" from their Creed.I, (state your name), having been appointed a (rank) in the United States (branch of service), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against … [Read more...]

When Religion and Politics mix…When the media fails to report…When we don’t understand why…

cronkite_200-30ddecaab918f90c6aa681ee130c04ae63c2643b-s6-c30[1]

Media Coverage I suppose the first thing to cover is the fact that no national American media source is willing to cover what is going on in today's political arena with the audacity that, say, Walter Cronkite would be able to do. If you click the link you'll find the story about how a single reporter changed the American perception (or at least the middle class' perception) of the Vietnam War. It probably wasn't a popular thing to do, but he had integrity and stuck with the truth.I'm sure … [Read more...]

The Secular Prevaricators of America

Unknown-1

Secular Party of America I know I'm late in the game making a statement about the recent controversy surrounding the Secular Party of America. Most of us in the atheist "community" are aware of the voter fraud involving the name change from the National Atheist Party to the Secular Party of America. The short-version rehash of what happened is that Bernard "Flash" Kellish enlisted the aid of Christopher Thomas to help him rig the vote for the name change and unsuccessfully attempted to enlist … [Read more...]
