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 [Read More...]

Atheists at Travis Air Force Base have a meaningful community

I’m extremely comforted that the lessons learned at Fort Bragg’s MASH are contagious. Once you organize, a meaningful community quickly follows. It’s amazing how fast Travis Air Force Base organized into something with tangible accomplishments, like the first ever atheist holiday display on a military base – next to the Nativity Scene and Menorah. USAF [Read More...]

Visual representation of atheists fighting for equality and winning

This is a before and after shot documenting the rapid changes the commanders at Travis Air Force Base are implementing.

Foxhole atheists are demanding equality at every step. This [Read More...]

Agnostic from Travis Air Force Base hates mockery, can’t spell ‘atheist’

The sign says “Have a safe holiday season”.

Travis Air Force Base now ensures uniformed lighting for holiday displays

American Atheists donated the twice-vandalized holiday sign to Staff Sergeant Dan Rawlings and the atheists at Travis MASH. The sign simply says “Have a safe holiday season – from the atheists at Travis MASH”. Rawlings remained in constant contact with me and described each step of his wildly successful efforts for equality. As we mentioned earlier, [Read More...]

Let there be light, and a lot more of it for baby Jesus

Fresh off of being vandalized, the officials at Travis Air Force Base secure the lighting for the atheist sign. Sounds good right? Well like many parts of the story, it’s once again 2 steps forward, one step back. Progress, but seriously… what the hell? They took down his 120 watt bulb, and replaced it with [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 [Read More...]

Air Force changes mind, atheist holiday display now welcome at Travis AFB

This display will be going up as early as tomorrow morning at Travis Air Force Base, courtesy of American Atheists. Rawlings says the artwork including images of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is playful. Civilians will probably miss out on the real in-joke here. The entire military has inescapable and seemingly endless ‘safety briefings’. It was pretty hilarious [Read More...]
