Holy SMOKE! An Air Force General made a speech recently and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation has taken issue with Olson’s remarks, (and) is calling for the two-star general to be court-martialed and “aggressively and very visibly brought to justice for his unforgivable crimes and transgressions.
Take a look at the linked article if you’re interested. Here’s what I’d do if I heard an atheist speak to the Air Force:
“What a jerk….well, he’s got his views, I have mine.”
I would know that guy’s not convincing me or anybody else about anything……WHY do atheists feel SO defensive? Why call for a court martial, for goodness sake?
What makes them so sensitive, so ugly, so condemnatory?
I think I have an answer. Got one yourself? If you are an atheist, please be honest and tell us if you’d be calling for this extreme punishment. I get why we might not want to hammer on faith in military talks, but this General only spoke about how he felt God helped him. I’m pretty sure he didn’t add “and if YOU are stupid enough to be an atheist, think twice, you idiot!” Right?
And, ready? This was said a speech at a National Day of Prayer Task Force event on May 7, Maj. Gen. Craig Olson credits God for his accomplishments in the military, and refers to himself as a “redeemed believer in Christ.” “Day of Prayer?” What kind of talk would atheists have approved of?
GeeeeeZ! I’d love your reactions!
