U.S. Military Burns Christian Bibles

CNN is reporting that U.S. military personnel burned Christian bibles which were confiscated at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan roughly a year ago. The bibles, sent to the base by a church in the U.S., were printed in the two most common Afghan languages and were confiscated due to concerns that they would be used for proselytizing.

Conveniently, the decision to burn the bibles emerged soon after Al Jazeera suggested that U.S. troops were being encouraged to spread Christianity in the Muslim nation. This allegation was denied by a U.S. military spokesman.
