Rev. Joe: True Equality in Chaplain Corps? (Nah)

“Humanism fills the same role for atheists that Christianity does for Christians and Judaism does for Jews,” Mr. Torpy said in an interview. “It answers questions of ultimate concern; it directs our values.”
Saw an interesting tidbit in my local paper about a failed amendment "that would allow humanists or members of ethical culture groups to join the chaplain corps." Numbers-wise, this is a significant group, more than Jews or Muslims, e.g. But, respect for religious beliefs continues to be a bit selective, so it failed. Like gays, still have the "down lo" chaplains.
