Make what you will of this, but I found the numbers kind of interesting:
Only fourteen percent of Americans are evangelical Christians.
Forty percent of active duty American military personnel are evangelicals.
Sixty percent of military chaplains are evangelicals.
All if which raises a lot of questions. Why are evangelicals — especially clergy — disproportionately drawn to the military? And what effect does it have when our army is not just Christian, but disproportionately made up of Christians who regard proselytizing as a core value of their faith?
And how do they react in a foriegn country or war zone faced by those of differing faiths? Especially considering they tend to be True Believers.
Hiroshima, Japan — The A-bomb survivors knew their peace movement was in trouble when they were banned by an Atlanta school board and heckled by hostile Americans at a peace march in Washington.
