Just in case you didn't catch the website on the photo of the banner in the original post: Check out this short animation, with sound effects of machine guns even, advertizing the "Men's Night Out" where that insane pictoral account of military recruitment in a Kentucky church that I caught on Fark.com via locomono (see screenshots if you missed it).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Propagannon rules at the moment. That will pass, for better or worse.

    This story of yours is one pillar to the overall structure of a prima facie case that the SBC and Dominionists are strivitng to take over the US military.The story will not go away, nor will your notice of this be forgotten.

    Those pictures - with your name attached - are an important documentation in this developing story.

  •  200 Billion dollars (none)
    is earmarked for FAITH-BASED INITIATIVES something tells me it will be used for more than soup kitchens.
  •  Globally spreading faith in Christ (none)
    Wow...that's some frightening stuff.  Muslims of the world...watch out, 'cuz Jesus is coming for ya!

    My question is this: what happens when we get bogged down?  Or what happens when we switch focus onto China with 1 billion Buddhists (or so)?

    You know, it's times like these when I really want to move back to a blue state!

    This 'killing Muslims is Christ's calling' stuff is incredibly prevalent down here.

    How much do you want to bet that the 50% of Americans who thought there was a connnection between Saddam and Osama are comprised overwhelmingly of same people who subscribe to the 'Holy War' tenet of evangelical Christianity?

    If I had a penny for every 'hell, Osamer and Saddamm both hated 'Murika, both are Muslims, and live in the same country...y'all do the math!'

    I'd be very, very rich.

  •  One side note (none)
    Local paper here ran a story about a divorced, evangelical mother who's father is in Iraq and has been kidnapped.  She had married a Hispanic-American and said the following:

    'I showed them a picture of my baby, he don't even look American...maybe that'll help.'

    Yes, in other words, 'olive-skinned individuals are not REALLY Americans AND Iraqis are just too stupid to realize this.'

    Sigh.  Blue state blues taking over.

  •  Images from Leni Rieffenstahl's films (none)
    of Hitler's rallies immediately spring to mind. How soon will it be before such things are happening in sports stadia throughout the land? How soon until "bible camps" and "revival meetings" spring up exhibiting the same sick, militarist jingoism? Which makes me wonder: has anyone here been to one of these tented religious "camp meetings" in recent years? I'd love to know what happens at them now. I remember being taken to them annually in the Black Hills of South Dakota by my parents back in the 50s and 60s. The flag was always right behind and to the right of the pulpit. In those days it wasn't politics people preached just fire and brimstone. But better that than what these pictures so chillingly demonstrate now.
