U.S. Military being used as Government-Paid Missionaries

This is a shocking look at proselytizing in the US military. It's from the point of view of the culprits themselves - in their words. It's extremely creepy. www.youtube.com/embed/SB1UifGIqaw? Close allies, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), compiled this from various sources. Some are anonymous leaks, some are promotional videos filmed by military personnel. There are even a few clips from international news (the US media rarely covers this.) … [Read more...]
