    I don't know. Probably for the same reason that some people confuse being total jackasses with being "very conservative".

    Because them preaching Christianity in a country where it is illegal can lead to death.
    Not to mention they are not there to spread the Bible or whatever other religion. They are there to do a job that they are paid for.
    If Soldiers wish to help people "to" Jesus. Do it when you are off duty and out of the country

    As an example of forced religion. Had I used the Taliban I'm sure you would have been more than gung ho.

    Cool. You'll find in life not everyone thinks like you. It's called maturity.

    How can they help those people if they are out of the country?

    I respectfully disagree.

    No offence but Christians are widely seen as rubbish believers. The Western Christians generally tend to pick and choose what they like and i could hardly call them being observent to God generally speaking and from my experiences.

    And no, no Muslim actively seeks to convert others. Anyone who wishes to convert to Islam. They come to us. Not the other way around.

    And you will find not everyone in life behaves as poorly as you. It's called civility.

    The stimulant and justification for the crusades was established from the Bible.

    What type of Buddhism interests you more?
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
