Ok I try to avoid those forwarded emails just because they are well LAME! But sometimes depending on who sends it, or what the title is I open it (yes I should know better).

Why do people always assume the troops are all for Jesus?


Because Jesus was a badass.

You are not wrong for being annoyed. It is possible that some of those events are Unconstitutional.

Also, the American Legion will not accept atheists (although the VFW does).

BTW, Pat Tillman, who quit playing for the Arizona Cardinals and joined the Army and was killed in Afghanistan, was an atheist.

I am glad that I did not have to put up with that BS in the 1980's when I was shipping out on merchant ships, but that was another time, and if someone tried pulling that religious nonsense they probably would have been tossed overboard.

I've heard stories of people taking the oath of enlistment now and it states "so help me god", but they aren't given options before they repeat the oath.


There is actually an American Legion office right near our base, I guess we won't be going in there anytime soon.

What I find hypocritical is that the email photos you describe are of soldiers with children. oh yes! that is what war is all about, rainbows and sunshine. I'd like to see them Try and put a happy Godly spin on the missing limbs and funerals Oh and don't give us that crap about God will see them through it or they are in a better place now, Stupidly,My better place includes living.

Perhaps it's time for and atheist email forward on a godless war.

That is an event that just happened in my home town.
A solider was laid out at a local mortuary, huge turn out. Across the street were these church folk (i have NO idea which church, but I think I had heard Methodist) with horrid signs like that.
Along come the motorcyclers in town who confronted the folks with the signs.
It was a mess! People were so angry at the sign people. Anyway, everyone was talking about it.
