Hello J J, just responding to a comment you made on the Military Atheists page- the one that you addressed towards Active Duty Navy:

 

Yes. They still do the prayer at taps over the 1MC, at least they did as of August when I was last underway on my last ship. I once passed through the messdecks during a prayer and didn't stop and bow my head, and as a result got some really nasty looks from some sailors that were sitting there.

Also, something that may bring a smile: for a time, people will purposely call the chaplain's office phone and try to get their ring on the 1MC when the prayer was made- it was sometimes funny to hear. I almost always completely ignored the prayer.

Take care J J.

Hi J J. Welcome to this friendly meeting place
where we recognise that all gods are phoney and religion is a great fraud used to control people; and how it is tragic and inexcusable that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years.

Welcome to the Reno Atheists group. Small for now, but hopefully things will pick up as we get more members.
