Fuck those marines. Somebody ought to courtmartial those christfucking bastards. They are acting against America, trying to turn noncombatants in a hostile area against us. I hope they get pulled out of there or blown up before they can embarrass us further. Ugh...worthless fundie fuckholes.

I don´t know how widespread such a behavior among american soldiers in Iraq is.
But if there are several cases like this it is no wonder that the american soldiers aren´t very welcome ;)

Well, gosh, I can't imagine why the rest of the world, especially the Islamic world, hates us so much.
5/30/2008 12:14:49 PM
I support all the troops except those sanctimonious donkey fuckers.
They are clearly there to promote their own agenda and need to default to Antarctica.
5/30/2008 12:17:08 PM
Shit like this is why they are trying to kill us.

Christian Evangelicals in the military: You are NOT HELPING!!

for more information on fundies with heavy weapons.

Ya know...I saw a lot of this when I was over there. I was with a Ranger Chalk so we were a higher breed of solider...I was fortunate to have a squad of atheists or free thinkers. We got shit done, earned the respect of the non combatants and never once talked about gawd. These types really do make things worse.
Think about it you jar headed assholes...There are two groups...Shiite and Sunni and they are fucking killing each other. THEY ARE THE SAME GODDAMNED RELIGION!!!!
What honestly makes you think they will go, "Hmmm..Christ you say? Well fuck Allah!"
For fucks sake...

See this rifle that I have and you don't? On a totally unrelated note, do you believe in Jesus who is the only ticket to heaven after you DIE?
5/30/2008 12:43:54 PM
I am honestly disgusted.
People like this do nothing to help anyone.

Active-duty here. If the chain-of-command knew this was going on, it's my bet that they'd seriously discipline those involved. These guys are literally risking their own, and other Marines', lives with this shit.
In the course of the discipline, I'd also question those guys to find out who put them up to it. They didn't come up with this on their own.
This would be something that would have the CO's attention in any unit I've ever seen.

I can see why ther're doing it. Remember how British evangelicals trying to Chrsitianize India during the empire worked out so well for everyone?
5/30/2008 1:08:21 PM
Right now the people, whose hearts and minds we have to win to make sure they don't blow us up seem to have the choice of a Muslim theocracy vs. a Christian theocracy. Thus, if I were Muslim, I'd choose the former, since there would be less unknowns, thus the lesser of two evils. This seriously hurts us.
5/30/2008 1:14:00 PM
Somebody needs to put a stop to this. We have enough of a problem with the ME seeing us as "invading Christian crusaders"--this isn't going to help things.
5/30/2008 1:15:09 PM
Update--this marine has been relieved of duty:
5/30/2008 1:19:33 PM
Yup, a little more religion is exactly what Fallujah needs right now.
5/30/2008 1:19:55 PM
Are those meatheads trying to blow the whole situation up?!
5/30/2008 2:09:27 PM
The US military is infected with evangelical fundamentalists. Why do you think Colorado Springs is a breeding ground for intolerant Christian hate? It's because of the Air Force Academy. Easy pickings among the homesick cadets, and your Manchurian candidates go on to be officers and commanders in the US military. From top to bottom, the tendrils of christian rot pulse, waiting for the signal to declare their true master - Republican Fuck-em-all Jesus.

I doubt that's what they're trying to do. They're probably just too stupid, or too brainwashed into thinking that no bad thing can ever come of endleslly preaching at people about their religion, to realise that that's exactly what the end result will be, intentional or not.
Anyway, this is a direct violation of separation of church and state - a soldier on duty is an instrument and representative not of himself but of his country, so any behaviour like this would constitute a direct endorsement of christianity by the American government.

He flipped it over, and on the other side it read, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16."
Did he get a magnifying glass with it? That's an awefull lot of text to squeeze onto a single coin.
5/30/2008 2:21:18 PM
Well, that's one way of uniting the Sunnis and Shiites: giving them a common enemy.
Big Stupid in action.
5/30/2008 2:24:45 PM
What is it with you goofy bastards that you can't just do a fucking job and not try to gain converts?
5/30/2008 2:24:58 PM
We've already been there, done that with the Crusades. It didn't work. So you are not helping anyone.
5/30/2008 2:41:50 PM
Fucking hell. Of all the idiotic...
5/30/2008 2:46:20 PM
For a while I've imagined the "War on Terror" to be a thinly disguised Crusade, this just added fuel to that particular fire.
