Did you Remember the Military Burned Bibles in Afghanistan?

Well, I didn't either, but Right Truth has the story.

Remember When the U.S. Military Burned Bibles in Afghanistan? here in May 2009. The Bibles were confiscated by military chaplains at Bagram Air Force Base north of Kabul and burned just in case any military person even thought about sharing the Gospel with a Muslim.

I wrote about it here in May 2009. The Bibles were confiscated by military chaplains at Bagram Air Force Base north of Kabul and burned just in case any military person even thought about sharing the Gospel with a Muslim.

Bibles printed in Pashto and Dari, the languages of Afghans, sent to American Christian soldiers and chaplains by private donors, which under Army regulations, could legally be given as gifts to Afghan citizens during the soldiers' off-duty hours and could be useful to U.S. soldiers in learning the languages of their hosts -- were confiscated and burned by the U.S. Military.
Doug Patton writes:
So, what are American Christian believers to conclude about their president? Is he truly a reasonable leader willing to listen to all points of view and to "disagree without being disagreeable"? Or is he a defender of Muslims, atheists and a culture of death at the expense of Christians and of the Christian faith he claims to embrace? His actions, combined with his irrelevant religiosity, seem to indicate the latter.
