I've always found the concept of Christianity and being in the military a tad contradictory (if you are Christian => adhere to the 10 Commandments => do not kill!). But what REALLY got my goat when I was in was being forced to a) go to church at BRNC, b) being forced to go to a church service when a YO and c) the religious elements of parades. As I've said in another thread, when a young whipper-snapper at BRNC who didn't know better, agnostic that I was, I ended up going to the CofS, enticed by Charles Stuarts cynical look at life at BRNC, with services that made very little mention of God (much less the rest of Christianity) and more focus on team spirits and "don't let the bar stewards get you down" stuff. Later when a YO, I successfully threw the book (nearly literally) at the senior staff who tried to force me to go to church services, having found out about QRRNs. Now a staunch atheist, I find the continued enforcement of religion at BRNC and IST (or whatever it is called these days) theocratic nonsense. Moreover, in the era of a multicultural society, the concept of a non-denominational service is ridiculous as it is insulting. Surely if God and faith is a personal matter, they should remain so and not be enforced through service traditions.
