Look, I’m not one to go around preaching the word of God, or condemning people that are not “holy”. Though I consider myself a spiritual person, and I believe in good, I am not very religious. That’s my truth.
I do believe that people have the right to their religion and their beliefs, so long as those beliefs are not hurting or infringing on the rights of others. I feel the same way about Atheists, I don’t care if you don’t believe in God, but you don’t have the right to condemn those that do. So long as we all respect each others rights and space, then there is no issue. That’s my opinion.
A military Chaplain, Kenneth Reyes wrote an essay on his military website entitled “No Atheists in Foxholes: Chaplains Gave All in World War II.” The piece was covered in detail on Clashdaily and you can read more on that by clicking the link below:
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) took issue with this and claimed that it violates military protocol. They are making a big fuss about it. Meh.
Alright, here is the way I look at it, ok? Maybe if people thought like me on this topic then everyone would be in a better place.Check this out! If there is something that I don’t care about, for instance, baseball, I have nothing to do with it. I find the sport dreadfully boring so I don’t watch baseball games, the games still happen, there are still millions of fans, and life goes on with or without me knowing about it. Everyone lives on.
My advice to these Atheists complaining about the Chaplain’s essay is simple, if you don’t want to read about religion, then don’t go to the Chaplain’s section of a website. What do you expect to find on a Chaplain’s website? Talk about evolution? Give me a break. Let’s use our head guys, you don’t like it, fine, you have that right. But do yourself a favor and DON’T GO THERE YO!
Simple, problem solved, thank me later. Your welcome.
