Army Removes Crosses, Steeple from Chapel
The U.S. military ordered soldiers to remove a cross and a steeple from atop a chapel and to board up cross-shaped windows at a remote American forward operating base in Afghanistan.
The removal of Christian symbols from the chapel at Forward Operating Base Orgun-E came after a solider complained — leading American Atheists president David Silverman to send a letter to the Pentagon.

“Soldiers with minority religious beliefs and atheists often feel like second-class citizens when Christianity is seemingly officially endorsed by their own base,” Silverman told Fox News. “We are very happy the Pentagon and the Army decided to do the right thing.”

Silverman said a Christian chapel on an Army base in Afghanistan could have put American troops in danger.

“It inflames this Muslim versus Christian mentality,” he said. “This is not a Muslim versus Christian war — but if the Army base has a large chapel on it that has been converted to Christian-only, it sends a message that could be interpreted as hostile to Islam.

An Army spokesman at the Pentagon told Fox News that “local command in Afghanistan is aware of this chapel and has taken appropriate action to ensure that it is changed into a neutral facility.”

The Army spokesman confirmed doors to the chapel were boarded up because of the cross-shaped windows.

“They have already removed the cross from the top of the building,” the Army spokesman told Fox News. “The primary purpose of making a chapel a neutral, multi-use facility, is to accommodate the free exercise of religion for all faith groups using it.”

God has always fought on the Americans side.

Look at miracles like Omaha beach.

This is just outrageous. If you ban one religion you have too ban them all right?

I'm atheist and honestly I don't give a fuck about seeing crosses anywhere. I perceive Christians as confused people who, with our help, will eventually be able to think for themselves. However, most of them are good persons. They are not our enemies! Our true enemy is Islam - religious enemy, political enemy, cultural enemy.
