Atheist Tuesday: West Point Atheist Can’t Take the (Religious) Heat

The overt religiosity [the cadet] experienced at West Point, the lack of accounting for non-theists in resiliency programs, and many instances of overt discrimination directly toward [the cadet] and toward atheists in general, all proved too much in the end. — From Military Atheists.org

Cadet Lt. Blake Page is an atheist. He is a cadet at West Point nearing the completion of his four-year program. In fact, he’s only five months away from graduating. He is upset about the religious nature of some aspects of West Point. He describes it as a blatant violation of the Constitution:

“These men and women are criminals, complicit in light of daily defiance of the Uniform Code of Military Justice through unconstitutional proselytism, discrimination against the non-religious and establishing formal policies to reward, encourage and even at times require sectarian religious participation.”

Even if everything Mr. Page says is true, it’s obvious that he’s a wimp. Read the rest from The American Vision blog here.

    Calling a serviceman a “wimp”?

    Interesting.

    I also notice that Gary DeMar engages in failed mind-reading… what a shocker. :-/

    He claims: “Such views are not uncommon among atheists.

    I am very curious what he bases on that claim on, besides “wishful thinking” or “absolutely nothing”.

    I think this guy is like the princess and the pea, overly sensitive.

    Im glad he quit now rather then under fire from the enemy abandoning his fellow soldiers.
