    Does the military have an Atheist Chaplain?

    I remember when I joined the Canadian Army, someone told me you couldn’t put ‘atheist’ under ‘religion.’
    Wonder what they’d have said if I put, ‘Deist.’
    Never did get to serve, sat on a waiting list for years.

    Who does a Pagan Chaplain pray to, a tree?

    Re: BZ

    The claim of it not being a religion is something I don’t understand. If a person hates God so much that he/she has a viceral reaction just from hearing the name Jesus Christ or seeing a church (that was not uncommon when I was in college), doesn’t that demand belief? You can’t hate something you don’t believe exists.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur It’s about a little thing called ‘Separation of Church and State’: the Government isn’t supposed to promote a religion, even if it’s yours.
    And you can’t hate something that doesn’t exist, indeed I often day “Thank god I’m a atheist!”

    @richardelguru

    Excuse me, but, if you could, show me where it says “Separation of Church and State” in either the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights. For that matter in the Declaration of Independence. that phrase came from a personal letter written by Thomas Jefferson.

    What the Bill of Rights says, is "Freedom “OF” Religion. Which means you CAN follow whatever belief you want.

    Actually @richardelguru, the 1st amendment to the constitution (The Bill of Rights) doesn’t mention what you are talking about at all. I suggest you read the law or read Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists.

    What most of the Athiests in my circle find really annoying is the presumption on the part of our “Religious” Friends/Associates that since we don’t supscribe to/support their delusionary belief in the “Biggest-Alpha-Male-of-all” that WE have a problem.

    NO WE DON’T, rather it’s that WE don’t have THEIR problem.

    Namely, that not only does the “Emperor” have no Clothes, but that there isn’t even an “Emperor” to begin with.

    (And of course, this precludes special priveleges for “His” Staff and Hanger’s on)

    In the late 1960s I saw the following on the cloth cover of a U.S. military helmet: " There is no LBJ – I’m an atheist."

    @bwillett
    1st amendment “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” is usually so called.
    Save me the effort of educating you, try wikipedia:

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    I think we can all say that we’ve encountered that sort of atheist, one who shows an evangelical fervor to convert others to his way of thinking… such people are especially easy to notice when they are pushing a belief that you don’t share.
    I believe that we are talking about a personality trait, however, that is equally common among people of other faiths. There are more Christians who react this way to atheists than there are atheists who react this way to Christians simply because there are more Christians to start with. Most people, regardless of belief, are reasonably polite.

    @richardelguru

    I find religion only useful when I need to curse.
    The expletives invoking the deities just roll right off the tongue, but then I feel like a hypocrite.
