Scrooged Again…

Yet again the military is suffering from PCism and social engineering and the Navy caved… sigh…

What’s missing?  A Bahrain tradition of the live nativity put on by the CHILDREN of the sailors…  That has been going on since C5F was stood up in 1995.

The “Live Nativity” was a long-standing tradition at NSA Bahrain that featured the children of military personnel dressed as shepherds, wise men, along with Mary and Joseph. It was part of a larger festival that included a tree lighting, Christmas music and photographs with Santa Claus and a camel.

But the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers objected to the Nativity and filed a complaint with the Navy’s Inspector General. They argued the Nativity promoted “Christianity as the official religion of the base.”

The atheist group also worried that the Nativity put service members in danger.

“Also of concern is the likelihood that the predominantly Muslim local population will see the U.S. military as a Christian force rather than a secular military support U.S. – but not necessarily Christian values in their Muslim country,” the MAAF wrote in their complaint. “This even threatens U.S. security and violates the Constitution as well as command policy.”

So rather than take it through the ‘normal’ chain of command to the C5F Admiral, they jumped DIRECTLY to the Navy IG in Washington…  

Another article HERE, from a ‘different’ organization to the Air Force, using ‘different’ reasons; but the Air Force stood up to them and refused to move/dismantle the Nativity scene. So now this group is going to SUE the Air Force…

There IS a war going on in the military, and it’s against anyone who is religious, including Chaplains… So much for christian’s rights…

  1. Always nice to know the freedoms I fought for are being protected . . . .

    I wonder at what point atheists cross the line and can be sued for inflice their “religion” on other people. Someone should give that a go some time . . .

  2. It is the right given by the Constitution that any American citizen has the right of free speech, including their opinions on religion. So I say let the Atheist spout their Godless venom from atop a Christian Cross. God Bless America, Nativity Scenes, and Santa Clause.

  3. I still can’t understand how a bunch of Idiots feel threatened by something that THEY think doesn’t exist, and yet, they want to wipe out that something. If they don’t believe it’s real, then why are their Knickers in a Twist?

    So, BY THEIR OWN LOGIC, they believe God Exists, and they want to destroy the Worship of the Lord. Or else why do they feel so scared?

    As the “Church Lady” said, “Can you say SATAN?”

  4. eia- yeah, not so much… sigh

    Robert- I don’t know!

    CP- Concur, but they don’t want to DO that, they want to make you take it down.

    WSF- Yep…

    Ed- Good points on both comments!

    Les- Good point too!

    Tim- That it has!!!

  6. Yep, it’s that holiday time again. (Shamelessly cut-n-pasted from my entry on Roberta X’s blog):

    “…time for the annual battles to begin. You know the ones:

    Christan: “They won’t let us put a Nativity Scene on the courthouse lawn!”

    Neutral Theist: “Well, THEY started it; they’re trying to sing CHRISTMAS SONGS at the school Winter Festival Program!”

    Third Party: “Happy Hanukkah!”

    Christian and N.T.: “Shaddup, you pushy Jew!”

    Almost makes me hope the Mayans got it right.

    And to all: your problems aren’t so much with the A-theists as they are with the ANTI-theists.
