Another military base hires civilians to proselytize to children

Chris Rodda has a great post about what is going on at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska (a base that has been on MRFF’s radar for quite a while) is really ramping up the fundamentalist activities this fall, heavily pushing the “convert everybody” meme. The article on the Elmendorf-Richardson website begins: When Jesus gave [Read More...]

Proselytizing in Afghanistan

Buddy Jesus wants you to spread the word! This is a pervasive problem within the US Military that I have had a major problem with for many years. The dangers behind this fundamentalist policy can be the actual loss of life to U.S. Servicemembers, many of whom (like myself) are not here to fight a [Read More...]

The writing is on the wall at boot camp (literally)

A brand new foxhole atheist sent me a few pictures from his cell phone. He’s in ‘hell week’ or ‘reception week’ of basic training. In a few days, his phone will be confiscated by his drill sergeants.

Nervous atheist military family “Will Fort Bragg ‘lose’ my housing application?”

Jennifer Andrews is a military spouse who recently moved to Fort Bragg with her husband Brian. She wrote to me about their experiences getting settled in, and it’s quite unsettling. I grew up in the Buffalo area in NY and lived there my entire life, until I married my husband and relocated to Ft Bragg. [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 [Read More...]
