If you thought we weren't Christian invaders...

A good article about how atheist soldiers get threats for not having "American" beliefs.


“They don’t trust you because they think you are unreliable and might break, since you don’t have God to rely on,” Specialist Hall said of those who proselytize in the military. “The message is, ‘It’s a Christian nation, and you need to recognize that.’ ”

...

Though with a different unit now at Fort Riley, Specialist Hall said the backlash had continued. He has a no-contact order with a sergeant who, without provocation, threatened to “bust him in the mouth.” Another sergeant allegedly told Specialist Hall that as an atheist, he was not entitled to religious freedom because he had no religion.

Love that fallacy: to have religious freedom, one must have an accepted religion.

Hey, if we're dividing people into Heroes and Villains, Sunnis and Shiites, Victors and Appeasers, why not separate "our" side as well, by the most arbitrary beliefs possible.

The article makes me happy with how my career path turned out.
