PandaMania Bible Summer Camp… Mascot Fail

I'm sure many of you will remember last week's story about the Fort Bragg Garrison Chaplain's annual Vacation Bible School. It turns out that many of our members are familiar with VBS products. Apparently, there are a few companies that launch new VBS packages every couple of years. This year, parents who sign the permission slip from the Fort Bragg schools are signing their children up for the PandaMania VBS package. Our lively Facebook community had responses filled with witty Panda … [Read more...]

Jesus Camp Bragg – US Army Provides and Funds Vacation Bible School

Rock the Fort Chaplain Is From the Moon, Writes Foxhole Atheist A Letter

Almost 45 days after the last-minute restrictions forced us to cancel our first approach, a fresh comment appeared on that announcement awaiting moderation. I was blown away at what I saw. Read the original wall of text in its embarrassing entirety here. **Update: Cleaned up formatting of this post can be found here** This is a letter from a (very recently) retired Chaplain, Lieutenant Colonel David Druckenmiller who worked on the controversial Rock the Fort event at Fort Bragg. It's mean … [Read more...]

Raising the US Flag the Day After Bin Laden’s Death Announced

Five hours ago, President Obama announced the death of Osama Bin Laden. Special Operations carried out in Pakistan ended with a bullet in Bin Laden's head. Celebrations erupted in the streets of nation, despite the near midnight announcement. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvW60YKfULM I'm proud of the military members who carried this mission out. I'm proud of my Commander-in-Chief, who even took some flack during the election season over promising to take military action in Pakistan if … [Read more...]

NY Times Covers Foxhole Atheist Justin Griffith’s Activism

The New York Times ran a high-visibility story on the foxhole atheist activist projects that I've spearheaded in the last 6 months. FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — In the military, there are more than 3,000 chaplains who minister to the spiritual and emotional needs of active duty troops, regardless of their faiths. The vast majority are Christians, a few are Jews or Muslims, one is a Buddhist. A Hindu, possibly even a Wiccan may join their ranks soon. But an atheist? Strange as it sounds, groups … [Read more...]

Tornadoes are evil and my cat is a bastard

I was gone for two minutes. In the meantime, Zero did this (above) The speakers were freaking out with loud error beeps (which continued for several minutes after I removed him). There is no way he was comfortable, and he clearly has a spiteful 'In your face' smile. Damage done: closed 3 email replies (not recovered) launched VLC crashed VLC crashed a browser (twice actually because he opened hundreds of tabs, and I was naive enough to try to restore my tabs) So instead of that really … [Read more...]

Wrecked Beyond Belief – Tornado Strikes My Neighborhood

All apologies for the recent quiet period on this site, but disaster has literally struck. April 16 brought multiple fierce tornadoes to many parts of North Carolina, including the Fayetteville area that surrounds Fort Bragg. This was a house in my neighborhood. The same scene plays out over long tracks of these streets, skipping over some and pummeling others. Luckily, our house was spared severe damage. But it was close. Just down the street, there is a house where nothing remains except … [Read more...]
