“Atheists don't need anything from the Army. We don't have special dietary needs like some religions. We don't need copies of 'holy' books printed and distributed to us at taxpayer expense. We don't need time off from work to attend services. We don't need chaplains to visit us or perform ceremonies for us.

“Some religious people like to claim that religion is sensible, intelligent and rational. Why, then, is there so much debate, rumbling on for thousands of years to no conclusion? Even those theologians who believe in the same God seem incapable of agreeing with each other on trivial points of doctrine.”
