America, Land Of Christians Or Else …

Atheist soldier claims harassment

  • Army Spc. Jeremy Hall sues U.S. for religious discrimination
  • Hall is known as “the atheist guy,” called immoral and a devil worshipper
  • He turned to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation for help
  • “It’s just about time somebody said something” about pressure to believe in God

It eventually came out in Iraq in 2007, when he was in a firefight. Hall was a gunner on a Humvee, which took several bullets in its protective shield. Afterward, his commander asked whether he believed in God, Hall said.

“I said, ‘No, but I believe in Plexiglas,’ ” Hall said. “I’ve never believed I was going to a happy place. You get one life. When I die, I’m worm food.”

The issue came to a head when, according to Hall, a superior officer, Maj. Freddy J. Welborn, threatened to bring charges against him for trying to hold a meeting of atheists in Iraq. Welborn has denied Hall’s allegations.

Hall said he had had enough but feared that he wouldn’t get support from Welborn’s superiors. He turned to Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. (This takes more guts than lying just to get along … Hall is a HERO x 2)

This is not America. This is not the freedom of religion (or lack of) that America espouses. This is the hypocracy that the world sees and judges America as a deluded and dangerous super power. This is not what we send soldiers and mercenaries to fight and die for. Freedom, as mouthed by the Bush Administration, comes out with a different definition.

If I choose to worship a piece of crap or nothing at all, that should be my business. Who or what I worship has nothing to do with my patriotism. What this administration has done is define patriotism as worshiping their narrow definition of their own ‘institutional’ god. They have taken away the foundation this country was built on. No wonder there is so much mistrust and anger. Mind control is the worst abomination the Bush Administration has imposed upon this once great nation. We can dye our hair green, spike it like a porcupine, and tattoo naked people on our bodies. As long as we hate the ‘politically acceptable’ things in the name of a loving god, who had a son through an immaculate sexual encounter, while waving the American flag and putting magnet ribbons on our cars, we are true American Patriots. We are truly a bi-polar, dysfunctional nation that spends more time and money on image while ignoring the substance of life. If a Christian hears voices it must be God. If anyone else hears voices, they are schizophrenic.

America has failed to sell this bullshit and appears to be stuck within its own delusion. Countries have been careful to avoid offending their demented money machine, as we have witnessed. Countries that don’t tolerate the hypocracy, harbor terrorists. As we all know, history teaches us that those who loose are terrorists, those who win are freedom fighters.

    As I’VE been reminded, on a constant basis.(If you), Read the writers of the documents that allow,no,ENCOURAGE THE WAY WE ARE TO CONDUCT THE ACT OF PRESERVING THE FREEDOMS for our selves, family and neighbors, then THOMAS PAINE and THOMAS JEFFERSON would NOT
    accept one that dared to call their self a CITIZEN,and then DENY
    one who has the courage to insist on freedom by the ACTIONS of ‘DUTY’.

    Ks, If you feel threatened by freedom of thought, your religion has not satisfied your own needs. If your self esteem depends on people believing just like you do, you appear to fear what you don’t understand.
