Atheists, agnostics, deists, humanists, freethinkers, and others identifying as nontheists serve honorably within our nation’s military. Chaplains should support nontheistic service members with the same enthusiasm, resources, and services that they provide for theistic service members. But the reality is that at least some religious chaplains are ill equipped to handle the problems of nontheistic soldiers. The House of Representatives will be voting this Thursday on an amendment that proposes to open the military chaplaincy to humanists.
