The religious indoctrination of US soldiers has been in headlines in recent weeks as soldiers who "failed" the "spiritual fitness" portion of the "comprehensive soldier fitness" test claimed they were forced to attend Christian ceremonies and become "born again" by professing love for the Christian deity. Similarly, GQ magazine uncovered last year a series of top-secret military briefings prepared by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld that included passages from the Bible. Trijicon Inc., a defense contractor, was also discovered last January to have been for years placing scriptural references on gun sights used by the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Hersh also lamented President Obama's continuance of the Bush administration's worst abuses.
"Just when we needed an angry black man, we didn't get one," he reportedly said.

Not really sure why this would be an issue, since we are allowed under the constitution the right of free assembly and association.

That is not true!
Our Queen (Netherlands) is "Eredame Grootkruis in de Soevereine en Militaire Orde van Malta"
In English: "Honorable Lady of the Grand Cross of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta"
Although it is considered sovereign, the Order of Malta is also a religious order of the Catholic Church, so Bertie's election needed the ratification of Pope John Paul II, which was obtained on 11 April 1988.

I remember seeing in a book on Navy Seals that they liked to refer to themselves as the modern day knights templar. It wasn't all of them and I'm not exactly sure if they just think its "cool" or there is more than meets the eye and this is really a modern day crusade?
