MAAF President Jason Torpy is visiting several locations in the Atlantic coast from March 13th through March 22nd. With invitations from representatives and Ft Jackson, Ft Bragg, and Naval Station Norfolk, Mr Torpy is helping military leaders and chaplains understand why and how to help atheists.

If any of you also happen to be ideologically conservative, please come check out our Conservative Atheist group here on Atheist Nexus.  We have 20 members here now. Also, please come check out a similar group (same title) on Facebook.  There, we have 230 members now.

Conservative Atheists (AN) - Atheist Nexus

Conservative Atheists (FB) - Facebook

Conservatives in both groups range from Conservative Libertarians to Conservatives.

 

Thanks.

  In November 2010, the US Air Force Academy invited the Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers along with other representatives of religious organizations and interfaith advocacy groups to their 2010 Religious Respect Conference. The focus of this conference was dialogue about the religious climate at the Academy and the development of religious respect training for freshmen cadets. This was intended to lay the foundation for more comprehensive training for upperclassmen and eventually for faculty and staff. The November conference was a great step forward, but it was only two days. In the past few months, the Academy has continued to meet the expectations set at the conference, but there is more work to be done.

MAAF has undergone a change in its website and setup - http://www.militaryatheists.org/ is the new domain. Also set up is an official blog at http://blog.militaryatheists.org/ and discussion forums at http://forums.militaryatheists.org/ . The new site has a more recognizable URL, design improvements, and improved services. Check it out.

So...in the AIT Platoon Sergeant Course, we were being educated on soldier wellness and resilience and Comprehensive Soldier Fitness was on the list of "tools" for soldiers on the PPT and it was completely ignored. I was curious, but to keep the class moving I decided it would be better to wait until I attend the Master Resilience Trainer course to dig further. I will also say that the "Prohibited Practices" and EO classes showed how damned ignorant senior NCOs really are and why I actually don't get along with many of my peers. Out of 30, about half couldn't understand the issue with making non-churchgoers clean while the rest were worshipping and the "gay dilemma" was brought up by the homophobes who apparently think they're attractive. The shower problem.

Hi,

Anyone in Leatherneck, Helmand right now? Drop me a line if you are, especially if you're able to download podcasts, 'cos I'm really pining for Atheist Experience, Atheist News, Chariots of Iron and The Non Prophets....

@Mayse - Hey brother, I am with Jason on this one.  No expressing of our pyromaniacal desires, no matter how frustrated. I THINK you were just making conversation but just saying, you (or anyone else) goes doing stuff like that and they have GREAT talking points about "what happens when you leave the teachings of the Church - arson!"

Comment by Jason Torpy on January 21, 2011 at 12:17pm
No burning things down.  That's not ok.  Although I do understand the frustration.  Hopefully having a community like MAAF will help those who are still in find some better solutions and protections.

The site looks interesting. I have bookmarked it to go over when I have more time to utilize it wisely. Thanks for the site.

Jason,

 

I don't know if I mentioned it when we met in DC last week, but I had an unpleasant interaction with a chaplain in Iraq that may (or may not) be of some interest to you.  I have a (admittedly very sloppy) write up of it on my website (www.tonyd.us) under Christian Karate.  If this is something that you can use in any way let me know and I can clean it up a bit.

 

VR,

Tony
