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 were accepted into the CFC's donation drive. The CFC is the Combined Federal Campaign. Every year the command is required to give everyone in the military an opportunity to … [Read more...]

Atheism Ruining Military Careers pt. 3 — Vindicated: USMA Officer Upholds Tradition of Christian Privileging in the Military

The West Point Cadet "Truth is generally the best vindication against slander." - Abraham Lincoln   Since my resignation from West Point, one of the most frequently asked questions sent my way has been whether or not I have any regrets. Certainly, I have spent a few minutes contemplating the potential alternative timelines that could have come to be if I had stayed. But, no, I do not regret my decision. Countless events, observations and conversations since then have left me … [Read more...]

Mikey Weinstein shared this letter with me, and Cadet Page gave me permission to share it. Mikey, I really need to share this with you. Something incredible happened … [Read more...]

Heroic whistle-blower in Army’s mandatory candlelight prayer scandal

800 junior soldiers attended mandatory suicide-prevention training, and were given plastic battery-powered candles. A chaplain talked for a while, telling the soldiers they must turn to god to keep themselves going in tough times. Eventually he dimmed the lights and instructed everyone to turn on their candles. The chaplain then lead them in a sectarian prayer to his lord and his heavenly father. The vast majority of the 800 soldiers are fresh out of boot camp, and are being trained in the … [Read more...]

Without Power of Christ, army allows diseased Muslim faggit takeover

Did you hear the bad news? 'Merica is being dragged into 'literal hell' by Mikey Weinstein, founder and President of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Yesterday my church had a much attended discussion after the service about who in America is dragging our nation into literal hell. Along with Hussein Obama and some other traitors your name came up for being the clever jew leader of an organization dedicated to the Dark One. And to stripping our armed forces of the Power of Christ in … [Read more...]

“Bow your fucking head down, recruit. Pray with the rest of us!”

Back in December I wrote about a fierce young Marine Corps recruit who was told that she couldn't have "ATHEIST" on her records and dogtags. I gave her some advice; she fought back, and won. She recently graduated from Boot Camp in top form. She had a blast despite the USMC's grueling 13 week training. It's clear that becoming a Marine is something she is quite proud of. If you'd like to congratulate her, do so in the comments here - I'm certain she'll see it. This is long, but certainly … [Read more...]

A chaplain is telling Fort Bragg that we plan to burn down churches

FORT BRAGG, NC – Chaplain (Captain) Chuck Williams wrote an open letter on Fort Bragg's Facebook page calling for the cancellation of on-post secular festival Rock Beyond Belief. Cpt. Williams claims, "It has now been made blatantly public by [event] organizers that part of this event will be... glorifying violence against people who possess a faith in God through the burning of churches. This is appalling!" Fort Bragg estimates that 5,000 people will attend the all-day event. It was … [Read more...]

How does this Marine tie his shoes? In little Nazis.

Chris Rodda has an amazing post about this image. The official story is that all of the Marines thought the SS stood for Sniper Scouts. Now I do believe that could be true about most of them. But at least ONE had to purchase this flag. Chris Rodda explains how she tracked down the exact website that this was purchased on. Guess what they mainly sell? Nazi shit. Obviously the Marine Corps doesn't want or deserve an association with the Nazi SS. I think it's sad that one hateful … [Read more...]

Disgraced chaplain lies, and prays that Rev. Barry Lynn dies

Dishonored ex-chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt was fired from the Navy. His leadership documented him violating regulations about wearing the military uniform to protests and political rallies. It was not about 'In Jesus Name', it was about protesting in front of the White House. But Klingenschmitt makes a living lying about his situation. He's one of those evangelicals who are so blinded to reality that they kind of lose their grip. His single-minded focus and passionate drive are … [Read more...]
