And what about when someone from the army says that we should loose our belief in Christ, because that gets us in trouble with the Muslims, or it causes us to maintain what is known as morals? The government has no place to tell us what to and what not to believe. On the other hand, I believe this is more the major's personal opinion than an official statement from the army, and therefore, not all that notable.
I don't think the major is suggesting that Evangelicals must give up their faith (although I haven't read the full paper), just that evangelical (nor Catholic) faith, can form the basis of national military policy. In any case, we are in trouble with Muslims allegedly for our foreign policy, not our faith. And Islamic extremists do make their version of their own faith the basis of their foreign policy, and that's not a realistic policy.
