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 [Read More...]

Atheism Ruining Military Careers!? pt. 2

The fear is So many people have come to thank me for coming out as not only an atheist in the military but an activist as well.

Camp Pendleton Cornered Into Ceasing All Large Religious Events After a Decade of Violations!

Say WHAAAT!?! When I first contacted Justin about Rock Beyond Belief 2 my primary motivation was to meet other foxhole atheists. I can honestly say there are more of us out there than the numbers truly reveal! Most of us are just content to live and let live. Perhaps, in that, I am the exception [Read More...]

Congressman told by DoD that all military suicide victims are atheists

In 2009 a part of the US Army called Comprehensive Soldier Fitness (CSF) sprang forward to deal with the rising suicide rate. They spent $125 million taxpayer dollars. They wasted it.

Establishment Clause, EEO, Limited Public Forum… pick your poison. Unfortunately, it really could go either way – potentially begging a massive lawsuit. I have it on good [Read More...]

Todd is also an excellent public [Read More...]

Chaplain apologized to me for saying “God bless you”

And I wasn’t even offended! I was running with a few of my soldiers in the morning ‘PT’ session, just before sunrise. Our paths happened to cross and he instinctively said “God bless you” as he passed (or something very similar). I hardly noticed it. I had forgotten about it by the time I received [Read More...]

Spiritual Fitness “not meant to endorse religion” VS Army’s own videos

These videos may just disappear soon. Grab them while they’re hot! They’re from the Army’s public facing media outreach website. Remember, whenever lawyers and reporters are around, the term ‘spiritual fitness’ has nothing to do with religion. It’s about ‘team spirit‘ and ‘human spirit’. So it’s not illegal when mandatory… CH (MAJ) Choi – Sunday [Read More...]
