what do you all think of atheists being members of the military? I've met quite a few people that have had problems with it. All comments are welcome, good and bad. Just don't be stupid about it.
I don't think it should even be something to consider. Same as at your job - everyone come to work, do your damn job and respect others ONLY for the work they do. Don't press your views on others and expect the same from them. Keep your frikkin personal stuff personal.
As an aside, the Air Force just started a new annual training on religious tolerance (there never has been one, amazingly). It's an online course, simple and only about 15 minutes. It does emphasize that everyone needs to accept that others have their beliefs and that all need to keep them to themselves. The part I dislike/disagree with is that the military has to give a religious person all the leeway possible to practice the things called for in their religion - i.e. change shifts, meals, clothing, and anything else that is reasonable. Not absolute, if not possible, but pretty vast. Acceptance for all.
