US Marine Base Hosts Secular Summer Camp
When members of the US military have organized events and celebrations of their faith, a few atheists in the military have complained that religion is being favored and have demanded the military give them a platform to mock their fellow troops’ faith. As has previously been noted, more than once, they fail to honestly admit that secular events are actually the norm.
Children gathered around a table and busily collected materials while they crafted art during the Summer Kids Club hosted by the Armed Services YMCA…
“This is fantastic because it gives children something to do after the school year,” said…a military spouse who attended the workshop with her daughter. “I have older kids who love coming here for the art and science classes. It’s hard to find something age appropriate. I really appreciate services like this and these events are within our budget.”
Again, the military repeatedly opens its doors for non-religious clubs, summer camps, events, and gatherings. It is admirable that the US military partners with local organizations to provide support for its troops and their families. It is also admirable when it allows its religious troops to choose to use their resources to do similar things.
Despite claims by some atheists, that’s not illegal. That’s American.
