Its a little maddening that you continue to pretend that this is about "conversations" and whatnot. It just isn't. The above is like the debate, but I've bolded in blue what you have been saying in this debate and in black what the rest of us have been saying. Hopefully it helps you see more clearly that all of this is VERY in line with the constitution, in fact is is DEFENDING the constitution, in that we are to be free from religious pressure or coercion in our places of work as PER the constitution.
Members of the military are free to share their faith as long as they don’t harrass others, the Department of Defense said in a statement Thursday.
A Pentagon ban on proselytzing had caused an uproar in social media this week. Conservative activists claimed that service members could face court martial for talking about Jesus.
But a Defense Department spokesman said that evangelizing is allowed, as long as it is not disruptive.
“Service members can share their faith (evangelize), but must not force unwanted, intrusive attempts to convert others of any faith or no faith to one’s beliefs (proselytization),” said Navy Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen, a Pentagon spokesman, in an email.
“If a service member harasses another member on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, or disability, then the commander takes action based on the gravity of the occurrence. Likewise, when religious harassment complaints are reported, commanders take action based on the gravity of the occurrence on a case-by-case basis.”
Christensen said there are no plans to single out evangelical Christians for punishment, despite claims of activists.
“The U.S. Department of Defense has never and will never single out a particular religious group for persecution or prosecution. The Department makes reasonable accommodations for all religions and celebrates the religious diversity of our service members,” he said.
