“If the bullets were flying your way faggot boy…”

I receive email. Craig Campbell writes: why can’t you just live and let live,i bet you if the bullets were flying your way faggot boy you’d be praying cockbite,so justin go fuck yourself and its too bad your a minority How do I even 'pray cockbite'? If I catch a religious soldier praying cockbite when bullets are flying, I'd smack him. Even just 'regular prayer', really. He might get us all killed! SHOOT BACK, DUMBASS!!!! This one is less offensive, but the last sentence is … [Read more...]

Another military base, another Nativity Scene – this time in Kentucky.

Foxhole atheists are taking notice of the rapid changes made at Travis Air Force Base nativity scene, spearheaded by Staff Sergeant Dan Rawlings. Fort Campbell needs to rapidly respond to the atheists that want to put up a holiday display there. Early reports are stating that this was put up today. This is an absolutely inappropriate place. This is nowhere near a chapel, which is still inappropriate if they refuse to support an atheist group. Travis AFB officials blocked the efforts of … [Read more...]

Atheist soldier killed in action, family proselytized due to NO-REL-PREF

Another debate-ending story on whether or not it is important to get ATHEIST on your records, rather than the inaccurate and inappropriate NO-REL-PREF. Text below the fold... … [Read more...]

High ranking chaplain leaves out ‘so help me god’ (awesome video)

Amazingly, this just happened. http://www.youtube.com/embed/7XQXBAGQ7xY? I already typed this into YouTube's description, so forgive the 3rd person narrative. The Chaplain respectfully leaves off "so help me god" for the deployed atheist soldier's re-enlistment ceremony. Chaplain (Colonel) Strohm is overseeing Sergeant Justin Griffith's re-enlistment ceremony. The Chaplain is a devout Christian with decades of active-duty service. Sergeant Griffith is the Military Director for … [Read more...]

Why don’t you just get out of the Army if you hate it?

Spoiler: I don't hate it...? Fred English is a super-troll who goes out of his way to harass foxhole atheists. He found me on Facebook and has been saying dumb things to me ever since. Like this: "why dont you get out? if you dont like what the army does you damn sure joined and i know you did not get drafted" - Fred English, ignorant troll My reply: ‎Fred English, why would I get out of the Army? I love the Army, I love this country, and I follow my oath to serve and defend the … [Read more...]

Penn Jillette misses the point about Atheists and the Chaplaincy

I still love you, Penn - but I have to rebut you here. Penn released this video in May: http://www.youtube.com/embed/ozj8QRr9Fe8? Penn Jillette mentioned my activism's news coverage in the New York Times and the Rock Beyond Belief festival (which is most certainly 'back on', but was not at the time of this video.) This is a turning point in the push for respect and equality in the military for the atheist community, and he clearly appreciates this. In fact, a few months back he even … [Read more...]

Army Chaplain Steven Firtko ‘simply offers’ Christ to atheist soldiers

An atheist just captured a Chaplain doing the wrong thing. And he's admitting to it as part of his regular routine. The sad thing is, he is not even aware of it. His job is to tend the needs of the existing flock, not to grow it. Other than in the extremely rare context of an atheist inviting such a conversation, he has no business bringing up the (pathetic) conversion tactics like complexity (appearance of design) and "It takes more faith to be an atheist." I can't even imagine a … [Read more...]

The single best video ever made about foxhole atheists (possibly NSFW)

This is that rare combination of well-informed reporting and genuinely funny brash sarcasm. Raleigh-based A-News is the DIY equivalent to the Daily Show / Colbert Report for atheists. I have no idea why this show isn't already massively popular. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhKKLhGijuQ This entire episode is dedicated to the recently reinvigorated struggle for acceptance by foxhole atheists. Is it too early to say 'the New Foxhole Atheists'? I'm proud to be one of the major players … [Read more...]
