A law suit is about to be brought agains the armed services. The above link is a story of athiests not being able to enter into military service.
I think the title of this discussion is misleading. They do not and cannot disallow people of different religions or lack of religions from joining. This new test they have is certainly unconstitutional, but will not in any way affect who CAN join. Perhaps who WANTS to join.
First, no one is suggesting that the military lay down their arms. But wouldn't it be nice if we used our military for defense once in a while rather than offense?
And the contention that we will be subject to terrorist attack if we stop killing them is patent nonsense. We are in their country! We are killing them! Boy couldn't buy a clue if his own life depended on it. If someone blew up my family, I'd sure be thinking on a terrorist attack on them . . .
