The Pentagon won't try military personnel for evangelizing. Just for proselytizing. Uh-huh.
The Pentagon has issued a press release denying that Christians in the military can be courtmartialed for sharing their faith. Nevertheless, the policy continues to say that military personnel can be courtnartialed for "proseletyzing.'
But apparently not for "evangelizing."
The diffreence has not been defined.
Mollie Ziegler Hemingway addresses this distinction without an apparent difference quite ably here. Thanks to Mollie for clearing up some inaccuracies in this.
The ambiguity remains- especially in view of the Obama administration's record of trying to double-talk its way around policies violating the First Amendment rights of pharmacists and insurance companies who oppose abortion and/or birth control.
