Interview With Critic of Evangelism In the Military Published

BuzzFlash yesterday published a long interview with Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation on his book, With God on Our Side: One Man's War Against an Evangelical Coup in America's Military. Focusing on concerns with proselytizing at the Air Force Academy, Weinstein said:
We now have about seventeen active cases going on at the Academy. Over forty-two hundred members of the U.S. military -– Marines, sailors, soldiers, airmen, veterans –- have come talk to us, and roughly 96% of them are Christians. About three-fourths would be traditional Protestants such as Presbyterians, Lutherans, Methodists, Episcopalians, Church of Christ, and Baptists. The other one-fourth are primarily Roman Catholic, with the balance being Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, or Wicken.

Basically you have dominionist evangelical Christians pray/preying -– on non-Evangelical Christians, telling them: You know what? You may think you’re a Christian, but you’re not actually Christian enough. And as a result, you’re going to burn eternally in the fires of hell along with the Jews.
