How long before the only chaplains permitted to serve in the U.S. armed forces are Muslims and Wiccans?

Correction, Mountaineer, you forgot about these guys.

Atheists aren't just looking for a platform in the military -- they're looking for a pulpit. In one of the more bizarre storylines from the Defense debate, a handful of House Democrats have been working to establish a chapter of non-believing chaplains in the ranks. So far, two representatives -- Rob Andrews (D-N.J.) and Jared Polis (D-Colo.) -- have introduced measures to create "non-theist" chaplains, only to see them flame out in committee. Groups like the Secular Coalition, who helped hatch this crazy idea, argue that nonbelievers suffer the same fear and pain that affects every service member.

It may have "flame[d] out" but it got 150 Democrat votes when it went to the floor.
