An Air Force chaplain has been officially reprimanded for repeating the cliché, "There are no atheists in foxholes" in print.
An atheist organization, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), complained that Lt. Col. Kenneth Reyes, through his "use of the bigoted, religious supremacist phrase, ‘no atheists in foxholes'...defiles the dignity of service members.” The MRFF suggested that Col. Reyes violated military regulations in so doing.
It isn't clear what regulations they mean. But Col. Reyes's base commander has apologized to the MRFF for not quashing the article. But the MRFF is not satisfied. It responds, “Faith based hate, is hate all the same,” and called for Col. Reyes to be "appropriately punished."
The MRFF is the organization founded by anti-Christian bigot Mikey Weinstein, who considers orthodox Christians "fundamentalist monsters" who seek to "impose a reign of theological terror" by expressing their beliefs. He calls the act of sharing one's Christian faith "spiritual rape."
Legislation has been introduced in Congress to protect the First Amendment rights of military personnel to freedom of religion and of religious speech. President Obama has promised to veto it if passed.
