I’ve had a couple of friend who worked as prison guards.

Mostly they work at the “State” level but also one who works on the Federal level. Reading this news article just made me laugh.

A convicted rapist is an atheist. He's also open about it. At least the guy is straight forward about being an atheist.

You get a lot of prisoners who “find God” as a way to buy favor and make themselves look good to various groups and the parole boards.

If only my friends could sit down with the “Happy Band of Do Gooders” and let them explain EXACTLY what goes on inside, they might find more “productive” things to do with their “doing good” works.


Like look at internet porn…

But the best was when he filed a complaint about his “Cellie.” If you only knew how many times I wanted to do that with just some stranger on the street or those clowns who come knocking on your door early Saturday morning to “bring you to God.”

Well here’s the story and the link to the page.
Enjoy.

RAPIST’S whine at cell with Christian
AN atheist rapist has complained that his human rights were breached by having to share a prison cell with a Christian lag.


Barman Steven Relf, 40, was jailed indefinitely after admitting raping two women he targeted when he served them drinks in a pub.
Police branded him a "sexual predator" and said he could have had as many as 40 victims.
In a letter to an inmates' magazine, Relf wrote: "I recently had the displeasure of sharing a cell with a Bible-thumping believer."
A source said Relf was "furious" at having to share at Manchester Prison with the Christian convict and wanted him to be "evicted".
He said: "He moaned about how the guy wouldn't shut up about God. He said he wanted to speak to a lawyer about his rights so he could be moved cells."
The other inmate was later transferred.

Hey, I just came across a story of a "New" Atheist in a foxhole before the New Atheism movement even started.

Anyone in Baghdad want to met up for a Green Bean? On me of course.

Due to OPSEC I can't say when I will be there or where I will be coming from but if you can leave me a SIPR number where I can reach you I'd love to have a sit down with other Foxhole Atheists.

Hi everybody,
I'm Dean. I'm a lieutenant in the IDF and currently I'm in the Israeli flight academy. I'm not an air-crew man on my own, I have a math degree and I teach math to the flight cadets who are completing an academic degree during their 3-year long course.
Atheism is the IDF is an accepted status. Many are. Israel is a religion-based nation, and for that matter, because there is no separation of church and state, religion is a lot less popular because there are no free-from denomination that can appeal to anyone (but more on that later). I believe more than half the population believe in a god, but only about 10-20 percent are religious.
So, although we have some religious laws regarding how the food is being cooked and what you should or shouldn't do on a sabbath, the IDF is a very secular military, and although the ideal military would be godless, I'm fine with its current status. It is a lot more tolerant than what I'm hearing about the US military.

"We are the...."A" team...."
And what's the worst thing they could do?
Block our photos....
LOL.....
Just a thought.....

Rick, that is a great idea, and it is funny that you mention the Scarlet Letter. I've thought about putting the "A" on my vehicle - but everyone will just look at and think it is the Scarlet Letter, and the jokes would be nonstop.

I am sure it would be just as easy to Photoshop in a red A to existing pictures too.
