I am in the Army, and am familiar with the test in question. While I am not necessarily an advocate of the test, I have to point out that I personally didn't feel offended by it. At no point did it mention or name any specific religion or deity. I really just chalked it up to a good case of, "If the shoe fits, wear it."

I would never imagine such a thing exist. It is so obviously wrong.

I’m pretty sure it’s not the Army’s business how &/or whether you relate to deity.

*facepalm* Oh, that is so bull. Say it with me, folks: you can be good without God. There ARE atheists in foxholes.

How on earth do you quantify such a subjective area, anyway?
