onward christian soldiers

General Boykin wasn't the only evangelist for holy war.

WASHINGTON - Nearly a dozen high-ranking military officers and Pentagon officials came under fire Monday for participating in a promotional video for an evangelical Christian organization, renewing an outcry over religious proselytizing within the ranks of the military. The video was posted on the Web site of the Christian Embassy and shows seven uniformed officers, including four generals, endorsing the group's evangelical activities in the Pentagon and other government circles. Three civilian Pentagon officials are also featured on the video, including Army undersecretary Pete Geren, a former Texas congressman...

Christian Embassy was established in 1975 by Bill Bright, founder and president of Campus Crusade for Christ, to offer spiritual assistance to policy-makers in Washington. On its Web site, the organization invites Pentagon officials to weekly Wednesday morning breakfast meetings that are open "to military and civilians of all ranks and grades."

It appears these are the videos: part one & part two. The imperialist evangelism speaks for itself. I can't wait to see U.S. soldiers carrying these around on the battlefield.


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
