AL JAZEERA DOCUMENTARY ON EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN DOMINANCE IN THE U.S. MILITARY

I found an excellent documentary about the problem with right wing Christianity being promoted in our military.  I have seen this myself on Fort Lewis in Washington state and was asked to go to a bible study group which turned out to be a cell group. There was talk about how they were recruiting in the military along with some really crazy demon hunting agenda. They told me not to tell other people at the church about what we talked about or we would be called radicals and asked to leave the church. It was quite an eye opener for me. Between that experience and the bullying from some on the religious right here in Alaska which by the way included some Catholics and Mormons I no longer am a Christian. Change in religious beliefs or loss of belief in a higher power are normal with PTSD. Imagine being from another faith and having to live in a situation where you are treated like a second class citizen and it is sanctioned by your government.

This is typical anti-Christian propaganda from AL Jazeera.

Al Jazeera is a propagandist tool for Islamic Fascism.

When was the last time Al Jazeera did a story on the widespread violent persecution of Christians who live in Islamic countries?

I am not surprised that my previous comment was not published.

As I stated Al Jazeera is a propagandist toll for Islamic Fascism.
