  • Why shouldn't they be?

  • Being religious makes you no better, I'd say it makes you worse. Because when you think you have infinite justification for your actions, you'll go much further and do much worse things.

  • freedom of religion???? how is this a question?

  • Why should you not be able to join armed forces to FIGHT FOR WHAT'S RIGHT because you have different beliefs than other people?

  • Strange question. Just because certain religions are now more widespread than Paganism doesn't mean anyone that still sees themselves as Pagan is somehow wrong. I don't see a belief in Jesus Christ as the Messiah as being any more believable than a belief in Zeus, Thor or Pakhet.

I was not under the impression that they couldn't join. In fact Im having trouble looking up any form of regulation in the armed forces that prohibits them from joining.

@58539672 Oh, they can I was doing a experiment to see who agreed and who did not.

I dont think you know what a pagan is, judging by your poll description

@Shield That was googles definition so I just went with it, but I think I would know my own religion. A pagan is a person that is in the occult, for example Wicca is a paganistic religion also Druidry and many other religions.

I am pagan so i don't see why we shouldn't be aloud to join. The law states freedom of religion and separation of the church and government. To prohibit someone from joining because of there faith would be a direct violation of the constitution.
