NC military post concert geared toward atheists

Fort Bragg to host US military's first-ever event geared toward atheist and agnostic soldiers By The Associated Press

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) ' For the first time in history, a U.S. military base will play host to an event aimed at service personnel and their families who don't believe in God.

The Rock Beyond Belief concert, scheduled to happen Saturday at Fort Bragg, will bring together bands, speakers and events intended for families and young children.

The headline speaker for the event is Richard Dawkins, the British author and scientist who has become one of the world's most famous atheists.

Sgt. Justin Griffith, the lead organizer of the event, says members of the military who don't believe in God simply want their perspective recognized.

The concert was organized following an event at Bragg in 2010 sponsored by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
