Military Recognizes the United Church of Bacon

lasvegasmaaf-20150419-300x225The Department of Defense doesn’t allow its staff to freely surf the Internet. Some websites are a waste of time, and others could post a security problem. So websites are blocked from staff, and the United Church of Bacon was one of them. This happens sometimes without any discrimination being intended, as this page on the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers website indicates.

We are grateful to Jason Torpy, President of the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers (MAAF), a national non-profit building community for atheists and humanists in the military, for helping us out. He submitted a request and got our website unblocked. Now anyone who wants to worship bacon and explore the United Church of Bacon’s atheist principles can do so from within the Pentagon and elsewhere.

MAAF was one of the six national secular organizations that flew to Las Vegas last month for our Wells Fargo protest. Jason came in person and a good time was had by all. He sent us this report on MAAF at the protest, where he raises an important issue: should members of the military when swearing their oath to country also be required to swear to God?

MAAF is one of our recommended secular charities that we encourage you to give to.
