An extremist segment of Christians has become increasingly dominant thoughout all branches of the armed forces. Recently, for example, the cadets at the Air Force Academy were all required to watch Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ. And while the military has regulations in place to prevent superior officers from "pushing Mary Kay Cosmetics and Amway and Tupperware," religion seems to be given free rein.Quoth conservative
When I see the worsening degeneracy in our politicians, our media, our educators, and our intelligentsia, I can't help wondering if the day may yet come when the only thing that can save this country is a military coup. [emphasis added]You might soon get your wish, Mr. Sowell.
Update: According to this commenter, the assertion that AFA cadets were forced to watch The Passion of the Christ might not be accurate. If anyone has more information, please comment here or send me an email.
