Facebook super-fail: only Christians survive in a foxhole

Larry M. says I'm a 'dummy' that's going to get 'wacked' (sic) in a foxhole because... I'm not a Christian. He's also grateful that he doesn't have to be the guy who carries my body back to the FOB. Atheists are just too damned heavy!At least he accepts that there are indeed atheists in foxholes. I'm not sure why he sent me a message implying my impending death (because his god wouldn't block the bullets for me.) Oh well... this is progress, people!If you want to communicate with me … [Read more...]

I was trolled with Silverman, Dawkins, PZ Myers, thunderf00t

The Religious Antagonist was causing quite a stir at the AA Convention in Washington D.C. Everyone was talking about the guy who Richard Dawkins told to 'fuck off'. Nobody warned me, but I think I handled myself alright.www.youtube.com/embed/8H25ADf8I3I?rel=0He cut out one thing from our conversation. I'm paraphrasing:Religious Antagonist: "Do atheists have bigger holes than foxes?"Justin Griffith: "Yes, because they tend to dig a little deeper if you know what I mean."Also … [Read more...]

Baba Brinkman writes about the festival

Baba Brinkman slayed the crowd with his extensive lexicon and concise delivery at Fort Bragg last weekend. Then he wrote to all of his fans about it:Last weekend Mr. Simmonds and I traveled to Fort Bragg, NC for Rock Beyond Belief, the historical first on-base rock concert for military non-believers. The day got off to a late start due to a morning downpour, which was gloated over by the spiteful devout but only until about 1pm, and after that the clouds blew over and we had beautiful sunshine … [Read more...]

Bragg announced the atheist event on Facebook. HELP! Troll Patrol!

I'm so proud of Fort Bragg's embrace of the atheist festival. They just posted it prominently on their Facebook page, as promised.Predictably, the trolls are already out. Please, help us.[edit: please note there is a 2nd post that desperately needs some of your help!]Melissa wrote:"I have been praying for this, pray that when this man gets up to speak that only Gods words comes out of his mouth that what ever he has prepared to say doesn't fit to be said that the Christians of Fort … [Read more...]

Why having Nate Phelps at Fort Bragg is important

People are starting to make noise about Nate Phelps joining the Reason Rally lineup last week. And for good reason: the Westboro Baptist Church / God Hates Fags hate-speech advocates may be clashing face to face with Nate (son of the infamous patriarch behind WBC, and blood-relative to nearly all them.)But I don't think word has gotten out that Nate is also slated to speak at Fort Bragg's upcoming atheist festival. This will bring Nate's story full circle in a triumphant way. … [Read more...]

“The military needs god’s protection not some wacko like you”

I am the recipient of comments.Sometimes I'll get a rapid-fire volley from a single person, too impulsive to resist the warm embrace of the 'submit' button. Their brains are mid-explosion, possibly their underpants too. Like this:This person says that I need to get out of the military and America. Then he went on for 10 minutes submitting five separate comments on the same post.Sick of wackos says:March 17, 2012 at 4:49 pmJUSTIN GRITTITH…GET OUT OF THE MILITARY AND AME … [Read more...]

Have a good day

I get email, too:There are no atheists in foxholes buddy they all cry out to God when the shells are raining in. To hold an antheist event on a military post is unacceptable. Leave people alone and quit pushing your views on people. Without GOD our country wouldnt be what it is today and sadly because of groups like you taking GOD out of everything is why our country is sliding down a slippery slope to no return. Until our country puts GOD first we will continue to deterioate into a third … [Read more...]
