Athiests in the Military
I guess the military has changed, or maybe the entire world has. I remember a time in the military when going to church would have invited ridicule; now it seems not doing so is the problem. This story in CNN paints an interesting picture of how far the conservative Christian movement has infiltrated the rank and file. I would imagine Jews or Catholics have a hard time too, not just atheists. Anytime you stray from the “established norm” you’re asking for trouble, especially if that norm is a bunch of self-righteous fundamentalists.
Over at The Teapot Atheist there’s a good report on the situation. And referring to my yesterday’s blog, check out what the Teapot Atheist has to say in his sidebar about Joseph Smith and the Mormons.
