Afghanistan: If you Can't Kill Them Save Them.

I keep hearing that the Americans are coming to help save us .....and Afghanistan.

But I didn't realize this is what they meant by SAVE.

"The special forces guys - they hunt men basically. We do the same things as Christians, we hunt people for Jesus. We do, we hunt them down...."

Now look I don't mind soldiers praying for victory in Afghanistan. We've tried everything else and it hasn't worked. And besides all religion is nonsense as far as I'm concerned.

But don't they know what happens to Afghan converts?

And how dare they try to convert the atheists.

“They don’t trust you because they think you are unreliable and might break, since you don’t have God to rely on,” Specialist Hall said of those who proselytize in the military.

“The message is, ‘It’s a Christian nation, and you need to recognize that.’ ” know two things come to mind.

If soldiers need to rely on "God" to fight....they should join the Salvation Army.

And if the Americans are coming to SAVE us....and Afghanistan.

May the Mad Monkey God help us all .....

Good post Simon. It's frightening how much sway Evangelicals have in all US institutions.

Hi Beijing...I'm glad you liked it.I was trying to make fun of them, but of course it is no joke.
With all the soldiers they recruit in the deep South I'm not surprised at the religious fervor in the ranks. What shocks me though is the fanaticism of some of these officers. I just read that there is only ONE pig in Afghanistan...and he lives in the zoo. So imagine how this Crusader stuff will play in that country....
