I could not come up with more bizarre stories than what today’s news provides. A video was shot about a year ago as part of a documentary, and apparently leaked to Al Jazeera. The video feed is slow, but what it shows is astounding. The video shows a group of American GIs stationed in Afghanistan, who have obtained copies of the New Testament written up in local languages, and intended to distribute them.
At the time the article was written (Monday), there had been no response from the Pentagon. However, yesterday the Pentagon did reply.
They destroyed the Bibles and are apparently distancing themselves from the entire affair. That is probably the best reaction I could hope for. Here is another link from a Christian news bureau. Comments after this article are as frightening as they are inane. Some see this as a freedom of speech issue.
But really, if purveyors of the gospel are carrying both a Bible and a Gun, doesn’t this show their tremendous lack of persuasiveness?
