Atheists in the Military Are Demanding Their Own Chaplains
November 15, 2011

(CNSNews.com) – Atheists and humanists serving in the U.S. military are leading an organized push for official recognition of their own chaplains, or something akin to chaplains. They contend that they are being left out, even though they say they outnumber participants in established religions.

Outnumber participants in established religions? But, but, I thought folks accused the military of being murderous Christian soldiers??
So have I now become your enemy for telling you the TRUTH? Galatians 4:16

Leave it to you to go COMPLETELY OFF TOPIC. Despite the fact that most soldiers may not participate in an established religion, most consider themselves Christians, that is why they have the crucifixes on their graves.

Nevertheless the irreligious wanting 'chaplains' are fucking retarded.

OK, nevertheless the vast majority of the US military is Christian. Period, end of story.

"Weinstein estimates that about 88 percent of the U.S. military is either protestant or Catholic, with 4 percent representing other faiths, atheists and agnostics. According to Pentagon statistics, 22 percent of active personnel are evangelical Christians.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation counts around 16,000 members, including vets and reservists. Of those, 96 percent are Christian."

How can an atheist demand a Chaplin when they don't even have a religion because they don't believe in a God? Flying Spaghetti Monster anyone?

Thanks for the info on the numbers of Christians in the military. I was afraid I was going to have to look it up.

I would also like to see this group back up the claims that the majority of the military is irreligious.

Re: Atheists in the Military Are Demanding Their Own Chaplains
Just because someone believes something does NOT make it a religion. Many people believe dogs are a hell of a lot more spiritual than christians. Are you going to claim they're a religion also? Atheists don't worship anyone, they don't have a book they follow, no holy days, no songs they sing to an idol. Atheists don't even have FAITH.

No faith, no religion.

Re: Atheists in the Military Are Demanding Their Own Chaplains
Ok, I'm an atheist, a rather militant one (see what I did there?).

This really seems like a bizarre request at first glance tbh.
Probably because of the word "chaplain".

But hey, you know what I did?

I actually read the article (unusual for GLP I know).

It's not atheists per se, it's Humanists.

The Humanists are an organized faction a 'non-theist' religion basically (sounds like an oxymoron, but it isn't), so I guess they have a case.

Anyway yeah, nice propaganda piece TX but I suspect the vast majority of non-denominational atheists (wtf did I just say that?) couldn't really give two shits about getting a chaplain.

To really understand this report, you need to do some research on the Humanist movement.

The Humanist society even has tax-free status, it is recognised as a religion by the federal government btw.

So again, this isn't atheists demanding a chaplain, it's Humanists and while Humanism is non-theistic, it IS a religion imo.

So they should be entitled to a chaplain, I mean the US military gives even muslims their own chaplains right?

They probably want something like a mental coach or motivational speaker.

It would probably go a little something like this:

Chaplain: Go out there son, kill as many non-Christians as you can and a place in heaven will be reserved for you.

Motivational speaker: I know it sucks to be here. Focus on the the positive. Once we finish this task we get to go home to our wives, children, family, friends, and country. You will be called a veteran and people will respect and adore you for no good reason.
