    That's not the point. The point is that you're endorsing illegal military practices.

    There's another word I'm thinking of for you. You're endorsing illegal actions, end of story. You don't see anything wrong with the illegal activities you endorse. That's it. Hypocrisy defined. You want to claim the left doesn't want to be held by rules, and here you come saying that proselytizing through the military is ok when it is very much illegal. You're looking to remove your side from the rules, the same thing you blanket blamed the left for doing. That's hypocrisy.

    Prove it!

    You are making some very broad assumptions that Al Jeezer, or whatever, is right! What if they are wrong! What if, just IF, they are completely full of crap!

    What IF giving a bible IS NOT preaching, as much as the leftists want it to be! What IF it is actually giving a gift?

    Why do you people automatically ASSUME the US military are the bad guys AND NOT the good guys?

    As long as they're not forcibly making Muslims become Christian I label this with a big fat "Who cares".

    A gift is giving water to people in a village, or shoes or something like that. Bible is religious, bible is proselytizing. That is illegal, those whom engaged in it should be punished.

    No one assumes the US military is bad, people simply want appropriate action by our military. People with religious agenda seem to have problem with that. If you want to hand out bibles, send missionaries. Do not use the military.

    I am not convinced our military men and women are guilty of anything.

    You people already have them convicted of crimes. So much for innocent until proven guilty.

    And you people wail from the highest mountain tops when some terrorist are being held without having their Miranda Rights read to them.

    Sickening.

    You can actively practice the religion; you just can't talk about the religion.

    It's a controversial gift and not sanctioned by military policy. Members of the on duty serving military should not be handing out bibles or even porn to foreign locals as servicemen and representatives of our country during war. There are codes of conduct that go with the uniform and chaplains have uniforms.
