"Oh, I saw the "adopted son David, now 31...." and thought this was just recent update to the original article...oh my math is certainly off tonight!!!!!! Still makes me sick that this behavior is/was tolerated!"

"This definately needs huge publicity! I'm suddenly sick to my stomach, I know this happens, it's just sad beyond words when I actually hear of it. I propose that anyone believing in a 'supreme being' not be trusted in public…"

Oath of Enlistment

I re-enlisted this past Thursday (14May2009). I have been in the military for over 6 yrs now, so I know I had to have said the words before....I guess I didn't pay that much attention to the entire oath previously. Now it has just been eating away at me!! Everything was fine until the very last sentence "So help me God". I cringed at the thought of saying this, however, I was on a stage in front of my entire battery and chain-of-command. I paused briefly, glanced at my husband, and uttered the…See More

About Me:
I'm happily married with 3 beautiful girls! Right now I just got out of the Army and I'm focused on completing my degree. I was raised Assembly of God and Baptist; long story short it never made sense to me...and after getting over my 'out' fears..I'm a much happier Atheist..which in turn has helped me be a better person, wife, and mother. Other than that I love to ride horses, dance, swim, and really anything that includes my family. I hope to help change the 'face' of Atheism, by that I mean helping to rid (or try too) peoples 'fears' of Atheists'. I try to show other than you can be a good person, help your community, serve our country, raise polite but intelligent children, etc. Wow, so that's a mouthful...if your still reading..."Sorry"
Age
31-35
Why are you here?
To help change the face of Atheism and get people to overcome their fears of 'us'...show a respectful (don't take that as a weakness) side that's not on a rampage just to piss off and antagonize the rest of the world. And I would love to meet other like minded individuals
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
It just never made sense to me, but I went to a private Baptist school, and attended my family's Assembly of God church founded by my grandfather (a child molestor). People like to say I left 'god' because of the things my father did (followed his fathers foot steps); however; that is NOT why I left 'god'..I decided along time ago after thumbing through my little bible in sunday school. My teacher caught me reading other passages and I asked her about them...and her answer was "Re-read John 3:16..and behave" she was pretty upset. That was the moment that has fueled the last 20 yrs of reading the bible and searching. As a younger adult I attended church from time to time, however...my heart was screaming at me for being there...I just thought I was defective and that I needed to try harder to believe and see the 'right way'.. Once I realized that I didn't owe anyone anything and that if I don't want to follow this crap--I DON'T HAVE TOO!

Hey there and welcome to the site!
I know there is a group for military atheists. I think the name is Atheists in a Foxhole. Have a look around T/A and let me know if you need any help getting settled in.
