  •  Yes, that's true (0+ / 0-)

    There was a brief respite from enforced Christianity. But by the late 1980's, in some areas of the military, things were back to a "go to church or clean the barracks" approach.

      Yep. I cleaned the barracks a lot back in the mid-late eighties. And I caught flack for either not attending or not staying long enough at religiously sponsored picnics. They weren't mandantory, but the commanders did find out who came or did not.

      The roots of this infestation run deep. It was pretty prevalant in the early eighties, and progressively got worse. I noticed that our moderate and tolerant chaplains disappeared, and aggressively religious AOG chaplains took their places, and were not open to other faiths other than their own.
