    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.
