For over 5 years, Soldiers punished for not attending evangelical concerts

Jason C. writes:I was in AIT at Fort Eustis,VA in 2003 and the drill sergeants tried to force everyone to go to a Christian evangelical rock concert .

Everyone was forced to toe the line to pull out our dog tags and show our religious affiliation we had on the tags.Even when I had No Religious Preference on my tags I was questioned and required to tell him I was an atheist . I … [Read more...]

God wants me to do *what* with these sandbags?

I've come a long way on my Spiritual Fitness journey. I've taken their advice and started an 'online blog' and everything. I even took their advice to join social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook in order to connect with a Spiritual Community back home.However, I fear that if I'm too open minded about the mandatory Spiritual Fitness testing and training, I might find myself in this sticky situation.(Thanks, Facebook!)We tend to use sandbags for other purposes on the … [Read more...]

Transcript of Army training reveals 83 instances of bypassing US Constitution

SGT Dustin Chalker, my friend and fellow foxhole atheist, wrote to me with exact figures from the mandatory Spiritual Fitness remedial training.Keep in mind, when reporters and lawyers are around - Spiritual Fitness is only about 'team spirit' and 'human spirit'. They emphatically declare that it has nothing to do with religion (clearly an admission that they understand such a thing would be illegal). This violates the No Religious Tests and Establishment Clauses of the U.S. … [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=NhKKLhGijuQThis 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...]

Army’s insane Virtual Spiritual Fitness Center gets remade by atheists

Jason Torpy, president of MAAF, sent out a request for some visibility on his remake of the Army’s insane Virtual Spiritual Fitness Center. I thought that was a pretty fun idea.I remember telling Jason in late March about the ridiculous website. We both kept finding more and more crazy stuff. Remember, this is brought to you by the same department that brought you the *mandatory* Spiritual Fitness testing and remedial training. You, remember… the stuff that has ‘nothing to do with religio … [Read more...]

Dustin looks at this as a mere distraction to his desperate attempt to tell the … [Read more...]
