Your got your missionary in my mission

Somebody call Mikey Weinstein. Christian evangelism in the military is now having serious effects on the military mission.
At the western entrance to the Iraqi city of Fallujah Tuesday, Muamar Anad handed his residence badge to the U.S. Marines guarding the city. They checked to be sure that he was a city resident, and when they were done, Anad said, a Marine slipped a coin out of his pocket and put it in his hand.

Out of fear, he accepted it, Anad said. When he was inside the city, the college student said, he looked at one side of the coin. "Where will you spend eternity?" it asked.

He flipped it over, and on the other side it read, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16."
This plays to the worst fears of Muslims in the region and gives those attacking our troops an excuse to consider themselves Mujahidin just like bin Laden said they were. If you want to be a missionary, fine, but take of the uniform.
