Funny joke or horrible discrimination?
Seeing an article about atheists in the US Army took me on a stroll down amnesia lane:
I remember standing in ranks one Sunday morning while on course and our instructor said that there would be a Christian service and had those who wished to attend fall out.
After the Christians fell out, our instructor said that there was actually no Sunday service and we would all be proceeding to our class. He then expressed his disappointment to the “pagans”, had them fall out as well and everybody headed to the trucks.
Having recounted this, I have to say that the instructor is one of the most admirable men I have had the pleasure of knowing and can say with total certainty that he was just having a laugh and wouldn’t discriminate on any criterion other than the quality of one’s work.
Comment on this: Guess which group I was in and why.
