You have no idea how evangelical the military is at this time. It's quite frightening. No one will be punished except for some lowly enlisted. That's the way the military works.

I think this and the fear we may be heading to a religious war or a perceived religious war is something we should all call our congressmen on. I work in and out of DC, and deal with lobbies at times. In discussions with them I was told a non form letter is valued as 1000 voters, a call as was valued as 1500 voters, and a visit was equal to 5000 voters. I think if all of us sent a letter it would make enough of a mark to wake up some of the powers on the issue. In DC voters are as good as Money in the bank!

I am anxious to hear the rest of the story. I'm betting that there are folks of higher rank that will be exposed. And I can't wait until they do follow the money and see who has funded this. Might another rejection of a presidential endorsement be in the works?
Too true....you are right, not all Christians agree with this type of thing, and I apologize for lumping together the self serving idiots with the faithful

A call is worth more than a non-form letter? By letter, were you thinking snail mail or email?

I hate to tell you it is snail mail, and written by hand.

Getting people killed in the name of your god thing is not good. But wackaloon christians donít care because itís not their own lives being put on the line.
Bullying? were you there? where is any proof to back up this baseless statement?

I am ok with anyone trying to convert me. Why are you afraid?
Who has been killed by the actions of the few people? did the killer say hay i was not going to kill anyone but now I am? Come on Hippie. Your full of something but it is not facts. Post up a fact with proof.

Seebee,
I know it is late, but you need to keep the lights on a little longer. If the impression of a religious war is transferred to the Moslems in the Middle East than the war wonít be with the small, but organized terrorized group it will be with the Middle East and an army of millions. A religious war is the last thing any sane person would want on both sides, and the effort to convert any people in a war zone other than being illegal is without a doubt as stupid as any of the mistakes made during this war.

But the wackaloon christians want a religious war, they want armageddon.

If one person dies for your religion that's too many.
