    Come on now, that's more than a bit ridiculous. The enlisted ranks of the military is predominantly xian of one flavor or another. Therefore it isn't necessary to "infiltrate". Xianity is however promoted at all levels of the armed services and there is PLENTY of proselytizing that goes on so it doesn't surprise me nor is this the first report of xians pushing their religion under the protections of our military.

    I'm surprised Steven Baldwin and his government promoted proselytizing group wasn't named in the article...

    If they broke this rule by handing out bibles, why are they still in Afghanistan?

    Jesus never called for conversion via the sword according to scripture, some humans did it anyway, but that was a very long time ago and not backed by scripture.
    I never said they were forcing. The other poster asked when does Jesus become an insult? I answered.

    From my POV, It does seem to be a more religious thing

    Actually you did...

    When people try to force him on other people. - winston53660

    In your defense it was in answering his question to you.

    You do make it sound like handing out a bible is somehow insulting someone? How? You say not interested and move on. If they keep up after that you have em arrested.

    You didn't answer anything. You made a nonsensical statement.
