SPITEFUL, SMALL MINDED, SOCIOPATHIC?THEN NEW ATHEISM IS THE RELIGION FOR YOU

In his post "National Secular Society is really a miserable and useless entity," Charlie at ALWAYS HOPE, reports that in the last week The National Secular Society in the UK has made an official complaint about the military paying for chaplains in Afghanistan and tried to get a council to stop allowing churchgoers to park for free when attending services on Sunday.

No wonder militant atheists have been likened (by normal atheists) to fundamentalist Christians. They are humanists without an ounce of humanity.

  1. I’m still wondering why some church goers should get free parking in lots presumably paid for by all while others have to pay. Why not allow Sunday morning parking for all to be free?

    As for chaplains, should not the chaplaincy at least reflect the religious makeup (or lack thereof) of the armed forces (e.g., some non-religious ‘chaplains’). Also should not the chaplains at least not make life harder for some service people (in the US at least some evangelical military chaplains consider it their mission to convert others to the right belief [though other chaplains have worked to protect service people from zealous evangelical regular officers]). Some US military chaplains also seem out to make life difficult for gays and lesbians in the military.

  2. This is about the British military, Erp. From a personal welfare point of view it would be far less dangerous for a British soldier to walk through a Taliban village with a placard saying “Shoot me!” than talk openly about religion to his comrades.
