A former evangelical Navy chaplain is pleased that an atheist in the military has dropped his lawsuit against Defense Secretary Robert Gates and the Department of Defense.

Private First Class Jeremy Hall claimed that an officer prevented him from holding an atheist meeting while he was deployed in Iraq.

Oh wow, of course, it was many years ago, one of the first rules taught to us on Parris Island, is "Never ask for permission" go ahead and do what you were thinking about, and if you get in a jam over it, you have "I never thought I was doing anything wrong" as a reasonable excuse, they fuss a bit, but usually let it go. If you go ahead after they told you "NO" then your butt is in a sling.

So True!

As the old Master Sergeant used to tell me right before he did something questionable:

"Tis easier and better to ask forgiveness than it is for permission."
