The Army has approved a concert event organized by atheist and agnostic soldiers to take place next spring at Fort Bragg.
The cliche notwithstanding, there are atheists in foxholes. In fact, atheists, agnostics, humanists and other assorted skeptics from the Army's Fort Bragg have formed an organization in a pioneering effort to win recognition and ensure fair treatment for nonbelievers in the overwhelmingly Christian U.S. military.
"I was overcome with joy and a sense of vindication."
"This just might be the turning point in our struggle for acceptance," Sgt. Griffith said. "I mean it. I get letters daily from service members asking for advice on how to do something like what's going on at Fort Bragg."
