I'm slightly peeved. So, I just posted in the Religion thread about how an airmen has been denied re-enlistment because he refused to say the last 4 words in his oath "so help me god". He's fully within his constitutional rights to do so, thanks to Article VI and the first amendment.
I'll keep the religion part in the religion thread. What I'm going to vent about is a congressional issue. Back in 1946, the Supreme court issued an opinion that basically said religious oaths in the military are a no-no, but 4 years later because of Cold War nonsense, Congress decided to ignore the Supreme Court and the US Constitution and make the oath end in "So Help Me God", however they left an exception in that non-religious or non-Christians could "affirm to the state" instead. However, in 2013, the congressional armed forces committee, an entirely civilian co-committee formed of politicians, decided to amend the oath to require the religious part and remove the exception, and the military is powerless to change it without congressional approval.
So not only do those bloody cowards in congress buck the Constitution, the buck the military to, and every serviceman and servicewomen defending out nation. Fuck the Congress, damn wanna-be nobles. Here's an article on the subject
