    Iraqis: Marines Handed Out Christian Coins

    BAGHDAD The U.S. military says an American service member has been removed from duty in Iraq after receiving complaints that Marines were handing out coins promoting Christianity.

    Sunni officials in the former insurgent stronghold of Fallujah say the coins were given to Iraqis at an entry checkpoint and had biblical verses written on them in Arabic.

    A military statement says the service member was removed from his duties Friday "amid concerns from Fallujah's citizens regarding reports of inappropriate conduct."

    The statement says U.S. troops are prohibited "from proselytizing any religion, faith or practices" and the military is investigating the reports.

    The military promises appropriate action if they are substantiated.

    I think the guy should get a medal!!!!!!! He is trying to show non aggression by giving a gift of tangible value. If you look this up in the Koran they have no reason to gripe. These guys are off their rockers!

    Any more it is getting to be o.k. to do, say, or be anything as long as it is not Christian.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    And NOT for the better. :icon_sad:

    "Political correctness" may just be what is keeping us from winning that war. Denying the very One who made our country great will cost this country much more than it can afford to pay too. Sad, very sad.
