Submission + - US Department of Defense Stops Religious Crusade? (latimes.com)

Banan Tarr writes: "The LA Times reports here that the United States Department of Defense has put a stop to the Pentagon-supported "Military Crusade" — a program created by a fundamentalist Christian ministry called Operation Straight Up. This comes a week after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation discovered intent to distribute "Freedom Packages" to US sodliers in Iraq. What were in these packages? Bibles, written in English and Arabic, and an apocalyptic computer game in which the main characters were "Sodliers for Christ". These packages were never delivered. But could they be a sign of things truly being out of hand in today's administration? Or is this an exmaple of checks and balances at work?"
