Go to: Military Proselytizing by the Gideons – and how we stopped it.

Nicholas Oliver's Avatar Jump to comment 30 by Nicholas Oliver

I encountered this same nonsense in boot camp back in January of 2001. They made you go to religious services on Sunday mornings or you could have the much more "friendly" option of being hazed back in the barracks. So... you choose to go to some service to avoid the Drill Instructors at the barracks.

In 2005 I encountered more of the same religiosity from a Lt. Colonel in charge of an Aviation Logistics Squadron stationed in Iwakuni Japan - This Lt. Colonel was preaching how its all part of god's plan that we are here to defend christian america in the world against evil and we were warriors of god. The idea of this windbag still makes me want to vomit.

Signed. A fine example of how religion poisons minds and allows for the most heinous of inhumane acts.

"When a religion is good, I conceive it will support itself; and when it does not support itself, and God does not care to support it, so that its professors are obliged to call for the help of the civil power, 'tis a sign, I apprehend, of its being a bad one." - Benjamin Franklin
