Onward Christian (and Israeli) Soldiers

Is this why Bishop Martino loves the GOP and ignores GOP torturing people and the GOP wars? And only talks about Bobby Casey-D and condoms and contraception and genitalia?

The military is denying it allows its soldiers to proselytize to Afghans, following the release of footage showing US soldiers in Afghanistan discussing how to distribute Bibles translated into Pashto and Dari. We speak to Air Force veteran and former Reagan administration counsel Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and journalist Jeff Sharlet, author of a Harper’s Magazine article on “The Crusade for a Christian Military.”

The Bush administration was well aware that torture doesn't work and is illegal. That is why they had the "Bush 6" lawyers trying to rewrite the torture policy, so they wouldn't be prosecuted. The Bush administration used torture to obtain FALSE CONFESSIONS linking 9/11 to Iraq/Sadaam Hussein, and they had planned to attack Iraq well before 9/11.

CAIRO — In a new embarrassment to the Bush administration, an FBI
probe indicated that detainees at the notorious Guantanamo detention
camp were “baptized” and wrapped in Israeli flags, the Washington Post
reported on Wednesday, January 3.

The FBI, under the Freedom of Information Act, released its report on abuses against Muslim prisoners at Guantanamo. These include having a guard dress as a priest and baptize them, wrapping them in Israeli flags, having women guards touch them while they were praying so they'd be unclean, pouring urine on the Koran and duct taping the face of a prisoner so he couldn't recite the Koran.
