Read today , on a conservative blog, of all places, that anti Christian proponent Mikey Weinstein was teaming up with the Pentagon to get all those bad guys who are eagerly proselytizing The Christian faith to natives of Afghanistan and to each other. The article, of course was framed in such a way so that it asserted The Obama administration, under orders from The POTUS himself, was making sure the Christian beliefs of US Soldiers were squelched under penalty of court martial... Truth is, the practice that disallowed religious proselytizing of any kind went back before this current administration... But that does not stop the whacky right who blame all their woes on The President... Also, to inflame the fires even more, the FOX NEWS, BREITBART inspired mythos was fed by the fact that the C.O. confiscated the Bibles intended to be give to the citizen of the country were and promptly Burned them... That fact may be bullshit--- but if it is trued, then the CO is as idiotic as Weinstein... All of it is partial truth propaganda that takes one incident and turns it into something else (Well, remember 911? Afghanistan kills our people, we go into IRAQ?)
