This made me stop reading.
"There are no atheists in foxholes, but there are plenty of friends of atheism at the Pentagon"
There are many atheists in foxholes militaryatheists.org/atheists-in-foxholes/
"The report cites more than three-dozen examples of the “pressures to impose a secular, anti-religious culture on our nation’s military services.” The culture has grown, like e coli in a petri dish, under President Obama."
Now this is where the author shows his true self.
To be secular in a office with some form of power is to not favour any religion and thus cannot be anti-religious. Unless you want to impose you religion onto others… then secularists would be seen as anti-religious because they will fight you on anything to do with God in the public purse. The author doesn’t want to stop evangelical atheists in the army; he/she wants to restart or continue evangelical Christianity in army.

Did you see the picture in the comments? Inspired (in a secular way).
