"Military officials confirmed the bibles were sent through private mail to a Christian soldier from his church back home. They were confiscated and destroyed by chaplains."

He and the church should sue the military for destroying their property. They could have just mailed them back to the U.S. after all!!!

That is awful! Why should we respect countries that do not respect freedom of religion? It used to be part of our, "so, you want to be our friends?" package!

"the U.S. military’s position of not promoting any specific religion"

Isn't non-proselytising a direct contradiction of Christianity and therefore promoting non-Christian religions?

Just fuel for my cynicism.

Orthodox:

To put a little sharper point on it, this is caving to Islam, thereby promoting that specific religion.
