    I am beyond delighted Frelund found a place in the US Army to thrive, that her superior officers were mentors rather than abusers.

    I wish Frelund and her family the best, and hope the cancer which threatened her daughters life has been banished for all time.

    So how does military recruiting work with applicants who are unhappy with the Christian ways of their communities?

    “Grey One had grown used to her people being tortured and murdered by Christian police on the streets of America. She had escaped death or brutal beatings from them many times, only by submitting to rape in deserted Sambo’s parking lots and being made aware that her family could be punished if she said a word to her high school counselors.

    “One day, Allah appeared to her while she dressed wounds she had suffered from being shoved to the asphalt by a Christian rapist in a police uniform. Grey One learned that she did not have to bow to the god of the Christian rapists and murderers.”

    Something along those lines.

    I guess you are trying to make a point but in your attempt to be clever you drove that car right off the dock.

    Yes, I’m well aware Christianists have infiltrated all branches of the military. It was all part of a well organized Seven Mountains plan to turn the USA into a theocracy. My relatives talked about it all the time back in the day.

    That said, Frelund experienced several catastrophic events in a very short time (assuming she and her story are real). Finding a safe place after such an ordeal would place anyone in an emotionally vulnerable place. Converting to Christianity was a way to reject the trauma of her past without losing her sense of faith. And I know how welcoming fundamentalists can be – at least until you start asking questions. Then they get quite grumpy and ask you to leave, or so I’m told (cough cough it was just one question. About how if God made everything perfect then why do people under the LGBTQA umbrella have to change)

    As for your substitutions, they just don’t work. Black people in this country are regularly terrorized and killed because of the color of their skin. As we live in a country where the majority of people are Christian then yeah, the police are acting as the baddies.
