Honor Thy Father

November 11, 2005 | 5 Comments

The Atheist Ethicist honors his father, William Lee Fyfe — an atheist who served in the Army during the European occupation and in the Air Force during the Korean war. He retired with a 100% disability after a plane crash in Japan, and died eariler this year from the long-lingering effects of his injuries. Be sure to read the letter he sent his son following the 2002 Pledge of Allegiance decision.

I’m sure that on this Veterans Day, he’s smiling down on us from Heaven.

    Great post. it really show the complete ignorance of the speaker. People die for the freedom to believe what they want and at their funearl, you tell people what to believe. Religion never ceases to amaze me.

    “The Atheist Ethicist honors his father.”

    Ironic to find the 5th commandment being followed here.

    Not wrong, silly, or stupid–just ironic.
