    Eh, that's partisan nothing.

    In WW2, the government did not bother known pacifist religions such as Quakers, Amish etc, but was intolerant of others. Most notable was about divisions within the various Lutheran denominations. Among those, smaller ones such as the Wisconsin Synod had a very high percentage - nearly 100% - of German ancestry members and even did services in the German language.

    Most Lutheran schools required students to learn German fluently. Nearly all members had German speaking grandparents from Germany and German speaking parents - making their male members highly desirable for obvious reasons since it offered literally a potential of 10,000s of thousands of German speaking American troops. Thus, dodging the draft was particularly intolerable for lose of the asset. The church initially was urging members to absolutely not sign up and even to resist the draft.

    The government gave their leadership and ministers an ultimatum - stop or go to prison for treason. However, it also offered the alternative that if the church would declare anyone drafted a clergy with their church, they would have to be go into the military if drafted BUT could serve as chaplains. The synod(s) took the offer. In both world wars the government was intensely harsh against anyone who spoke against the war once declared and anyone who resisted the draft. Unlike Vietnam, claiming to be a pacifist virtually never was successful and ducking the draft resulted in extended hard prison time.

    (I'm one of those people who knows a little about everything and a lot about nothing.

    Trump will not be in prison in 2020. I think that's just absurd.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
