Now I know the vast majority of soldiers don't care about religon in the slightest and don't believe it effects them or the army. I think we are wrongfully and harmfully being hugely encouraged to at least 'pretend' to be christian, this practice should stop. From Basic training where the choice was church or stand to attention outside, religous hijacking of memorials and the old if you don't put christian on the form you don't get christian 'christmas' leave. The Values and standards says clearly that no-one should be discriminated against, including Atheists surely! Making me stand outside due to my religous beliefs is a violation. Guess who the person I have to speak to about all this if I make a complaint? The PADRE!!!!!!! The guy who's job is stop people discriminating is taking part in the discriminating. The army is fighting enforced religon in Afganistan yet turning a blind eye in our own country, what do we do about this?
