    I don't care. Quality over quantity but for Christians it seems to be the opposite.
    It's ridiculous to say Muslims actively seek to convert Non Muslims.
    One or two is nothing. It generally does not occur.
    Why would Muslims hand out Bibles? Do you have a source that prove that Muslims give aid to Africa?

    Read Sante Fe Independent Schoom District V. Doe.

    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.

    Ah come on Goobieman, you can do better than that. I dont think its fair to say that. Statistically, when compared to the entire muslim population on this planet, only a fraction are extremists. The problem? They have very loud voices, and so we can be very mislead, especially here in the west, that they are all crazy plane driving pot heads. Now, i honestly dont mean to offend anyone especially my somalilandian homie laila, but i dispise most religions, paticularly Islam (look at my race, im no hypocrit), and am a huge supporter of secularism, paticularly Ataturks vision in Turkey. That is my view.

    In otherwords, some people are more mentally retarted (Conservatives) then others (Democrats/Republicans). Fair do. Fair do.

    Hey, dont blame me for YOUR false claim.

    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.
