Questions concerning recent news

I am for your mission of religious freedom for service members, however I am at odds with what I drew from the accusation that any SM promoting Christianity is guilty of treason. Is that to say that consenting individuals in the military aren’t allowed by law to share religious views while in the service?

Hi (name withheld),

Any negative comments you might hear or read emanating from MRFF relative to Christianity are exclusively directed toward the militant and aggressive Christian sect known as “Dominion Christians” and not the good Christians with whom we are familiar. Dominionists have been infiltrating the armed forces for some time, concentrating on our service academies and military training facilities. If you are not familiar with this term just Google it for a chilling glimpse into religion run amok.

We are currently addressing over 39,000 client case complaints from our young military men and women. These complaints are based on improper religious activity such as command centered and coercive Christian proselytizing.

Although the UCMJ address the issue of unwelcome proselytizing, consenting individuals in the service are free to practice their faith. It is those who feel coerced by superiors and commanders who are experiencing the difficulties.

I hope this answers your questions.
