    You can't possibly be serious. The people were motivated by the book. Xian doctrine provided the necessary vehicle to advance all sorts of heinous actions including murder or as you'd probably rather call it "war".



    Ever hear of the French Wars of Religion, the Crusades, the Reconquista, Northern Ireland, Manifest destiny, the Thirty Years War, All of the wars mentioned in the OT, the four wars of The Reformation, The Puritans Massacre... I could continue with a very long list of examples.
    Yes you could continue with a very long list of examples which you ignorantly draw upon in rabid blind hate of something you know little about. Yes, you could continue to play the fool and yes, I can continue to laugh at you.

    That's right, you don't know, you simply opened your mouth and some meaningless crap fell out. He used the Puritans as an example of forcing one religion or more specifically in the case of the Puritans, another version of the same religion, on another. Your comment has ****all to do with his statement so it's clear, before you said "I don't know", that you don't.

    Not to mention they are not there to spread the Bible or whatever other religion. They are there to do a job that they are paid for.
    If Soldiers wish to help people "to" Jesus. Do it when you are off duty and out of the country
    Their is no "off duty" in the military. You are bound by military laws and regulations 24/7.

    This is, of course, a lie.

    Well, no, that's not necessary true.
    You may actually believe that NO Muslim actively seeks to convert others.
    That just makes you wrong; its not a lie unless you KNOW what you're saying is false.

    (Of couse, I believe you KNOW what you're saying is false)
    Do you have any proof to share with us of Muslims proselytizing?

    Don't you know that neocons and especially xian neocons don't feel they are bound by silly rules or laws if they believe those rules or laws are in conflict with their interpretation of scripture or their fantasy of the world?

    Oh, and if you disagree with them, then you must be angry, irrational, emotional and a liar.

    Well now this is totally false. Except the part about you being an angry, irrational, and emotional liar.

Most of the troops are just looking at their watches, waiting for him to shut up, so they can go back to doing whatever it was they were doing before this jerk interrupted their free time. Honestly, this is nothing to be worried about. Troops don't care about converting anyone. They care about the following things:

    1. Avoiding death.
    2. Avoiding injury.
    3. Sleeping and eating.
    4. The occasional port-a-potty fantasy.

    That's it, nothing more to it. Perhaps there are a few morons who think it's alright to go around trying to convert people but they'd never actually be allowed to do it. Their squad-leader, or team-leader, or platoon commander would just tell them to stfu and watch their sector. Seriously, Iím laughing right now just thinking about someone in my team trying to convert an Iraqi during a combat patrol. I would have punched the **** out of them.
    While I agree with you that most of the grunts feel this way (unless you're there to say god doesn't exist, then those same apathetic troops turn into jesus freaks) it doesn't square with having bibles printed in native dialects. SOMEONE was pushing them to SOMEONE who doesn't read english... Hmm...

    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.
    Not if there is a rule against it, because you are never NOT representing the military during enlistment.
