The "are they guilty or not" is not a debate on whether or not it's ok to hand out bibles. The military is expressly forbidden from doing that. The debate is did they hand them out. If they didn't, then there's no crime (though a waste of money as none of them could read those bibles); if they did then there is a crime. But your endorsement of the act of military personnel handing out bibles is an endorsement for crime.
