In America super international corporations and corporate organized religion are
god, they reign over the nations politics and leaders and they rule and demand
loyalty obedience, protection and welfare from the nation states and their
subjects. They are the keepers of the holy grail the almighty dollar and its
power over the subjects lives.
Ok, they did have an invocation at the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony tonight.
So prayers are still offered at occasional events, but not as many as I
remember offered at our first duty station.
Why should someone without a belief in religion be able to dictate to another
who does how and where they can and should worship, give thanks, and pray for
blessings. Tolerance and respect go both ways. No one who is religious is
forcing the other to participate. Those who don't participate can be still
for a moment while the others do their thing.The first duty station
I lived at there were prayers said at most unit functions, blessing on food,
etc. Since moving away to other places, not a single prayer has been said at
any military gathering I have been to.
It doesn't matter what their religion, if cadets are interested in religion
they should attend church on their day of rest and read their own sets of
whichever scriptures they adhere to and leave religion out of the school.I work with the military and you'd be amazed at the amount of
religious emails that occur.
