Military atheists seeking the rights and benefits offered to religious groups

WASHINGTON — In early August, a small group of soldiers, airmen and their spouses gathered at a Panera Bread restaurant near Fort Meade, Md., to talk about the meaning of faith and how to share their convictions about life’s deepest questions.
As they sipped coffee and nibbled pastries, the scene might have passed for a low-key Wednesday night Bible study except for one thing — the members of the newly formed ATOM, or Atheists of Meade group, didn’t have any Bibles. Their belief system, they say, stops at the boundaries of the natural world.

  1. US military loves soldiers who believe in fairy tales, like the one, "we're fighting for our freedom."
