Requiring Specific Religious Beliefs to be in the MILITARY?!?

My wife found an article in the Huffington Post called “How Much Money Could the Department of Defense Save if it Stopped Trying to Save Souls?” by Chris Rodda (one of her favorite writers). The article disturbed me on a very deep level.

I have stated on several occasions (mostly in the useless little debates that follow articles in online journals) that conservatives, to placate the “Religious Right”, are guiding our country away from democracy, and turning the USA into a theocracy. This article, and the articles it links to, detail one of the most far reaching ways that the USA is being turned in to a government-run-by-religion. The military is being changed into a religious organization, one bit at a time. As with any political takeover, having control of the military is crucial.

Religious conservatives are following, step by step, the method used by the Nazi party to take control of Germany. We can’t let them gain control of the Military. Stand up, object, Make your voice heard. Be louder than Teaparty screamers.
