I have read some reports that the Pentagon has seized bibles from service personnel that were printed in Pashtun and Urdu.
I have not been able to find any mention on a website like Fox news or other news outlet. Only blogs and such.
Anyone got the news report or the press release or who broke the story?
Why is this a problem for you? Soldiers are there to fight a war, if the presence of their Bibles interferes with the war effort which they damn sure do in Afghanistan, where Christian prozelytizing is illegal, then it is the duty of the commanders to see that they are removed. Tell you what, once they get out of the military, they are free to go back to Afghanistan and try to save Muslims on their own time.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
