Ok for those who follow the world of online atheism this is old hat despite being an important and ongoing situation. I'm just slow to report it. The quick of it is that a soldier decided to have an atheist/ freethinkers meeting at his military base in Iraq. This was approved in the same manner any other meeting would be. Unfortunately when it actually came time for the event a commanding officer came in and ruined a good time. The soldier is now suing for discrimination, and has been receiving death threats for his fellow soldiers, to the point he now has a body guard to protect him from those on his side, while fighting the enemy.
This is an important issue and maybe in the future I'll give it more of the time it really deserves.
Good Luck Soldier.
