    infiltrated the USAF Academy, the Pentagon and Army units in combat in Iraq for a time.  I am a USAF veteran who served honorably.  I served in Vietnam for a short period.  During that time, there was zero tolerance for proselytizing by anyone in the USAF.  Absolutely zero tolerance.  Chaplains were there if they were sought out.  A priest helped me out during one very difficult event.  And, fortunately, the right wing fanatic Evangelical/Dominionist nutcases had not even begun their insanity yet back in the '60's and '70's.

    Full disclosure.  I had a Catholic school education, in Northern Kentucky.  Wonderful teachers.  Old school Liberal Catholics.  What is happening in many levels of public life/government in the US and in politics and the political debate regarding dragging christianity and christian right wing beliefs in as the template for worthy public servants - well, that is astonishing.  It's astonishing to someone who believes firmly, as did President Kennedy, in the total and complete separation of church and state.

    America is off track.  Our country is going through some sad days.  This right wing fanatic christian bullshit is truly scary stuff.
