    This group is complete and total hypocrisy. The reasons i believe so are as follows.
    This groups claims that everyone should be free of “religious attacks”. Right but what i have noticed is that is the CHRISTIANS getting punished for there beliefs. The christian chaplains were the ones being threatened and the USAFAis being targeted, but you never here about muslim chaplains being told the same thing, so maybe you should change your name to freedom from christianity because that is the group you are targeting. you people make me sick, your worse than the ACLU. I would say that i would pray for you but you know what i don’t want to waste my breath.

    In reply to the comment by Heath Martin–Since most of this country seems to be Christian, many of whom truly believing that it is our “founding” religion (which it is not), believing that this is a “Christian nation,” (which it is not), I don’t really feel that you have a worry about Christians being “punished” or “threatened.” It is all the others in this country that are “punished” and “threatened,” If this were any other religion being FORCED upon a United States military institution, YOU would be up in arms. The ACLU and the MRFF are here to ensure that NO religioin is foisted upon anyone–which is as it should be. The Constitution guarantees us all, “freedom of and FROM religion!” When it becomes mandatory and becomes a “program” to indoctrinate and, basically, brainwash cadets–there IS a HUGE problem there! NOBODY is trying to discourage individuals from practicing their own religious freedoms–only to stop the FORCED practice of ONE PARTICULAR ONE.

    Those poor christians.No one is forcing them to the lions den.As an atheist senior who was never in any branch of the armed services I can imagine what it must be like for my kind.If you need religion it is there for you.No one ought not give a praise Jesus with a high.5. Pray if you must but don’t do it out loud in the mess hall.And as far as saying grace at dinner table say it to yourself.

  5. Heath — brush up on your grammar.
    The Muslims are not trying to convert every breathing human like the fundamentalists are.
    Jolosturo— per your statement:
    NOBODY is trying to discourage individuals from practicing their own religious freedoms–only to stop the FORCED practice of ONE PARTICULAR ONE.
    You are RIGHT ON THE MONEY. There are somany examples of military people in positions of authority that are doing just that.

    “I’ve never been able to understand ‘faith’ myself, nor to see how a just God could expect his creatures to pick the one true religion out of an infinitude of false ones – by faith alone. It strikes me as a sloppy way to run an organization, whether universe or a smaller one.”
    ― Robert A. Heinlein

    “Almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so.”
    – Robert A Heinlein

    “Belief gets in the way of learning.”
    ― Robert A. Heinlein

    Heinlein graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, in 1929 with a B.S degree in naval engineering, and he served as an officer in the Navy. He was assigned to the new aircraft carrier USS Lexington in 1931, where he worked in radio communications, then in its earlier phases, with the carrier’s aircraft. The captain of this carrier was Ernest J. King, who later served as the Chief of Naval Operations and Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Fleet during World War II.
    Heinlein also served aboard the destroyer USS Roper in 1933 and 1934, reaching the rank of lieutenant.
    In 1934, Heinlein was discharged from the Navy due to pulmonary tuberculosis.

    You are are idiots! How are you bothered by someone praying? Who cares what someone believes? there are a lot of things we don’t agree with so stop imposing your hate on everyone!!

  8. David Carey

    Excuse me, Mr Bowman? I don’t think anybody’s bothered about their mate praying – it’s when your senior officer starts ramming religion down your throat and calling you ‘the enemy’ when you believe his particular fairy tale! That’s when religion becomes poisonous – and we really don’t need that in the military!

  9. David Carey

    Sorry – should read ‘DON’T believe in his particular fairy tale (ie, religion)
