    How many years did you serve in the military?

    I don't think a Muslim can convert out without being killed by a lynch mob.

    Did they try to make rain in Afghanistan?

    As good as that sounds, that's an assault on Afghanistan's sovereignty. Honestly, I don't really know why any group of humans still would have any amount of theocracy noting how bad it's been in history. And pressure should be placed on countries with bad human rights records (China). But can we just at our leisure ignore laws of other countries while in that country by claiming it to be unjust?

    Where's your proof it's a "crusade?"

    Where's your proof "crusade" was the objective of the US military action in Afghanistan?

    Do you know what a "crusade" is?

    This isn't about our military men and women having the ability to practice their religion; this is about them breaking the rules of the military and trying to proselytize the native population.
    What this is about is the leftist foaming at the mouth over a few bibles being spread around and people talking about the religion of Christianity. It pisses off you leftists to no end. You people come completely unhinged when strict PC rules are not followed by others. Rules don't apply to leftists, of course.

    Well, you people really ought to get over it. The more bibles that can be given away, the better. The more people that convert, the better. The more you people are pissed off, the better.

    We know something is good when you people come unglued.

    Gotta love the irrationality of religion.

    Now frankly, If Americans wish to place US Soldiers in such a position. I'm backing off but not whilst there are British soldiers in the same country and if it got out Bibles are being handed out then a ****storm will happen.

    Freedom of religion does not exist in Afghanistan, some people need to remember that
    Part of practicing Christianity is inviting others to join.

    Don't confuse this with aggressive evangelism.

    Offering free bibles and keeping the door open to a service is part of the Christian faith.

    It's worth pointing out that this is part of the Muslim faith as well, so why doesn't the OP go off on Muslims attempting to convert solders?

    Political bias.

    Please see through it.
