Army Coercion on Religion

As I’ve mentioned often, I’ve been very disappointed that Americans United for Separation of Church and State has been abandoning its historic mission in favor of advocacy of state support of Barry Lynn’s liberal Christianity (pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, etc.).

Now, at last, a press release showing that perhaps Lynn hasn’t forsaken AU’s historic mission completely.

It seems that Fort Leonard Wood has offered trainees a “Free Day Away”–including recreation, dinner, and a mandatory church service at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Lebanon, MO. If you don’t go on this church-sponsored outing, you have to engage in training on base. This is the only break given during the eight weeks of basic training.

This is definitely unconstitutional, and must be stopped.
