So I am in the army and as many of you well know, even though religion is a tabboo subject it is still brought up. I am currently reading God Is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens and while I was reading it I had it taken from my hand by a fellow soldier who had some nasty comments to say about it. I don't really know where I want to go with this outside of complaining to people that probably know the struggle a little more. I usually don't bring up the fact that I'm athiest but most people already know so they don't talk to me about religion, she apparently did not. She also won't leave me alone, but knowing that my sgt is christian I think it's a little awkward to ask him to make her stop talking to me when he'd probably side with her (just out of the christianity thing).
Anyway, so far I've kept my mouth shut, outside of ranting on here, but I know there are more like me out there so I leave it to you for suggestions... I'm pretty good at tolerating religion myself even though i despise all premise behind it, but I'm not so good at tolerating it being shoved down my throat like dead pool would shove meatloaf down the throats of helpless vegetarians.
