For the group: Go to Stipes.com and keep up with the letters to the editor in the Mid East edition for some serious biblical nonsense about DADT. You will feel either amused, disturbed or damn near homicidal like me when you see the ranks of the dicks ranting against the repeal.

Got it yesterday.Nice getting a care package that doesn't have all of that "god bless" and "We pray for you" nonsense on it.
Thanks, Jason.

Wasn't I supposed to get a care package?

I bet the whole thing gets white washed and somehow the vicitims will be the people responsible for the whole mess...that is the army way of exercising military justice and tolerance... Just look at the egregious dysfunction of command in the 1st Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division with Colonel Cloutier blaming an entire battalion for the misbehavior of LTC Matthews and CSM Clift.

U.S. Soldiers Punished for Not Attending Christian Concert.

This is baffling, why does one need to wage a campaign of Spiritual Fitness? The people who are religious will continue to practice their brand of faith and those that don't, won't. But what does forcing Soldiers to attend this concert accomplish? Unless their Commanders are trying to mold the faith of their troops there is no reason to make them attend such a thing. I just can't figure out why the troop who did not attend would get punished.

Oh... I see. You've allowed homosexuals, so now you're only allowed to worship Satan. It all makes sense now. (kidding)

I'm surprised and not so surprised to see that pagans/wiccans and other variants have a "fellowship" time reserved at one of the chapels on VBC.

Foreign militarize often don't enjoy the secular government we do (at least secular on paper). We have a different legal situation in the US but you're definitely welcome here and at the official site - Maaf.info

I came across this and thought I would share it with everyone.
I have had family and friends who have had personal problems.
It is hard for them, their family and their friends.
Thought this might help those who don't want a "religious" answer.

Subject: Chaplain reserved parking space.

I work as a civilian on a military installation. Of course, parking is at a premium. One of the spaces in the small lot in which I park is reserved for the Chaplain. This peeves me more than I could possibly express in words.

As a staunch Atheist I find this unacceptable. When I read Chaplain on the curb of the spot reserved I interpret it to mean 'this spot is reserved for a theist, and because you chose reason over superstition as your philosophy of life you are hereby reminded that this is just another one of those theistic privileges of which you must be reminded.'

Considering the audience that I am addressing, I need not go into the deeper issues of state funded theistic privilege that are the cause of this issue. I plan to pen this concern to the post commander in the near future. Before doing so, I thought I would solicit your muse concerning this matter.

What say you?


Best Regards,
Madison
