    Pentagon: Religious Proselytizing is Not Permitted


    Religious liberty groups have grave concerns after they learned the Pentagon is vetting its guide on religious tolerance with a group that compared Christian evangelism to “rape” and advocated that military personnel who proselytize should be court martialed.

    The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is calling on the Air Force to enforce a regulation that they believe calls for the court martial of any service member caught proselytizing.

    President Mikey Weinstein and others from his organization met privately with Pentagon officials on April 23. He said U.S. troops who proselytize are guilty of sedition and treason and should be punished – by the hundreds if necessary – to stave off what he called a “tidal wave of fundamentalists.”

    “Someone needs to be punished for this,” Weinstein told Fox News. “Until the Air Force or Army or Navy or Marine Corps punishes a member of the military for unconstitutional religious proselytizing and oppression, we will never have the ability to stop this horrible, horrendous, dehumanizing behavior.”

    I would've liked this to have been around when we were forced to go to church in Basic Training the first week.

    I was like..."Alright...I was, at one time going to go to a religious college, on a Theology major....And I elected not
    to go through careful consideration of my belief structure...Now, I'm forced to sit in the worst, non deniominational
    Christian service that I've ever been through. No thanks.

    In my 8 years in the Army, though, I don't know where this was ever an issue, past that one incident.

    Sounds like grandstanding.

    Thanks Shifty!
