U.S. Army’s Ft. Bragg to Host Atheist Rock Concert

A group of atheist soldiers has been cleared by the U.S. Army to hold a rock concert at Ft. Bragg next spring, the Associated Press has reported. Organizers of Rock Beyond Belief had planned the event for this year at the North Carolina Army base, “but they canceled after saying Bragg leadership was not providing the same support it gave to an evangelical Christian concert last fall,” reported the AP.

The godless event is slated for March 31, 2012, at Ft. Bragg’s main parade field — the same venue that held a 2010 Rock the Fort Christian event featuring Franklin Graham. The Freedom From Religion Foundation protested that event, claiming that it was exactly the type of thing the First Amendment was designed to forbid.

This time, however, opponents of faith in God are cheering the copy-cat concert sponsored by the group of atheist clubs.
