MRFF Congratulates Air Force on Removing Unconstitutional Sectarian Holiday Scene

WP_20131206_001

At  11:48 EST this morning I was alerted by MRFF clients of a nativity scene that had been placed aboard Shaw Air Force Base, next to Memorial Lake.This in and of itself is not a problem. However, it was not within the vicinity of any chapel and was not part of a scene designed to accommodate all religious preferences, or no preferences, aboard the base. It was very sectarian in nature and a direct violation of the US Constitution as well as a blatant violation of Air Force Instruction … [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...]

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...]

Secular Chaplains And A Tale of Two Service Members

field chaplain

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion... A few days ago, the House of Representatives of the United States set aside work on real problems so that they could pass a ban, sponsored by Rep. John Fleming, to prohibit the armed forces from appointing atheists or secular humanists to the chaplaincy.  Rep. Fleming had this to say: "The notion of an atheist chaplain is nonsensical; it's an oxymoron. It is absurd to argue that someone with no spiritual inclination should f … [Read more...]

Another Marine Corps Controversy from the Same Unit that Believes Atheism is Cause for “risky behavior”

WP_000125

Atheism in the Marines As a Marine who is also an atheist this matter is very concerning to me. After publishing about the Marines classifying atheism as a "risky behavior" a Marine from H&S Battalion in Quantico reached out to me with this: I saw your blog entry about H&S Battalion in Quantico.  That specific unit has the most fundamentalist leadership, but I specifically blame the influence of this crusty old Roman Catholic Priest that was the chaplain there (I dunno if he still is, … [Read more...]

Military Discrimination Against Christians??

2_22_450_todd

Fox News columnist Todd Starnes is at it again. Determined to see an anti-Christian bias in the military where none exists, he published this in a post from July 8th, 2013: There is a clear and present danger to religious liberty within the military, says a coalition of groups who believe the Obama Administration is pushing a secular, anti-religious culture on the nation's armed forces."Christians who choose to live out their faith find themselves incompatible with the secular view of this admin … [Read more...]
