Proselytizing by evangelical fundamentalists in the U.S. military has been a problem for some time now. Christian extremist groups recognize the value of influencing military personnel and have been rather open about their efforts to do so. There is evidence that the Department of Defense has signed off on such efforts in the past, and this should be deeply disturbing to anyone who values separation of church and state. What must it be like to be an atheist in the military these days?
It remains important that we continue to support reality-based organizations such as the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Our men and women in uniform deserve better than this.
