1.  “Is the military feeding traumatized soldiers in need of counseling to proselytizing evangelical chaplains, instead of mental health professionals?

But the growing body of evidence indicates that what Weinstein calls the Fundamentalist-Christian-Para-Church-Military-Corporate-Proselytizing-Complex has grave consequences for the greater population, too. This endless cycle of Muslim jihadist/American holy warrior hate and vengeance has added untold years to the war. Sadly, while the rest of us are looking to end it, our American archangels seem happy to let the war continue until every last non-believer is killed or converted.

 

The rhetoric is also mimicked to great effect by populist political figures like Sarah Palin (who says soldiers set the moral standards for America) and Glenn Beck, and in the Tea Party movement itself. It should be no surprise that Beck’s “Restore Honor” rally was no different than an evangelical event, in which a military non-profit was given a percentage of the proceeds and the Armed Services a lavish tribute. How far this goes and to what ends should be a concern for us all – not just those “unbelievers” in the military.”
