And, as usual, cue the fake outrage from Fox News

I'm glad that they "caved to atheists," as FOX news put it. If someone is a "bible reading" Christian, then they no doubt already have a bible. Putting a bible in military housing is just like saying our government endorses Christianity. This is true nowadays to a certain extent, but it doesn't reflect what the founding fathers originally intended. There is a little thing in the constitution that states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion." It also says "Congress shall...[not prohibit] the free exercise thereof..." This covers the religious freedoms of the other 15 percent of the military that are Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, etc. In the immortal words of John Stewart, the Christians are "confusing persecution with not always getting what [they] want."

I love how they outright lie: "they are taking away their right to have bibles."

No. You can still have a Bible, it's just that the government isn't going to hold your hand and make sure it is there for you. You have to be a big boy and go buy your own Bible.

The guy in the video, Dr. Klingon-Shit or something like that, said that atheists are infringing on the rights of Christians by complaining about bibles being in the housing units.....But what about the rights of the Muslim service members? Or the rights of Jewish service members? Aren't the Christians infringing on their rights by wanting christian bibles to be in these housing units? Just saying.... [Image: coffeedrinker.gif]

Christians claim it's Muslims who are outraged when the Koran is in play.
They claim to be above that.
Seems a bit of a double standard here.
...and god bless you in jesus' name. Can I say that on this forum?

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.

I love reading the comments section of a Fox article on religion or having anything to do with an atheist.

I like how Steve Doocy doesn't correct any of this guy's lies like, "They're taking away our rights."

Will they give the soilders "God Is not great"?

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

I think that if they would put as many religious texts as possible in every room (Bible, Koran, Torah, Tao Te Ching, Book of Mormon, Dianetics, Book of Shadows, etc.) then it would be acceptable....at that point, it would become more of a reference library...nothing wrong with letting the Gideons place their bible in the rooms, but don't let them be the only group that is allowed to have their religion represented.
