Our military is part of our goverment and as such religion can be practiced by government members as long as its nonsectarian and non-proselytizing. As soon as you take off the uniform or are no longer acting as constituient of our government you can prosletize and preach all you want.
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.
In otherwords, some people are more mentally retarted (Conservatives) then others (Democrats/Republicans). Fair do. Fair do.Originally Posted by DamnYankee

The only question is if you made that claim knowing that is was false.
I did give you the benefit of the doubt, but your backpedalling leands me to believe that you DO know that your claim that "no Muslim actively seeks to convert others" is false.
So, you lied. Admit it and get over it.

I'm going to try and squash this right now. It's a complete non-issue. No one is trying to convert anyone. The idea is absolutely laughable. Chaplains are irrelevant for the most part. They show up every two months or so, talk nonsense for about ten minutes, and go back to the big base with the air conditioning and chow halls. Troops are too tired and hungry to give a damn what they say. It's nothing, nada, zilch. Move on with your day.
