On Pentagon Evangelism


No, this isn't another blog about the top brass endorsements of the Christian Embassy in their promotional video.

This is about the abysmal "Left Behind: Eternal Forces" video game that is being distributed to soldiers in Iraq. In a previous blog I described this game as a "religious warfare instructional video." Here's a link to a podcast of a radio interview about the game.

Max Blumenthal has posted a story that summarizes the message as "Kill or Convert" and that is a pretty good summary of the game's message. Advocates of church-state separation as well as Catholics, Jews, gays and Muslims are targeted for extermination on the streets of New York.

Are elements within the Religious Right trying to prepare soldiers to wage religious wars in New York City after they leave Iraq?

The Department of Defense halted the distribution of the video game after ABC news inquired about the program.
