    according to my local paper.

    In choosing this course, the VA passed on a chance to establish a second interfaith room. In effect, the VA has trampled on the needs of Christian and Catholic veterans in order to meet the requirements of some unidentified third party that would be offended by the presence of a cross and Bible.

    It is curious that the Army has not followed the same course. It clearly has more religious persuasions to accommodate than the VA. There are more than 100 nations and virtually every religion represented in the Army. Yet the Army has elected to preserve its Christian (and Catholic) traditions while adjusting, as appropriate, to the needs of others. No one has protested the way that things have been done at Fort Bragg.

    Here’s what I’ve come to understand:
    Some chirstians don’t consider Catholics christian.
    Some catholics don’t consider christians christian.
    Many christians and many catholics don’t consider us mormons christian.

    It’s been my observation that members of the mainline Protestant denominations do not have a problem with the label “Protestant” and consider Catholics to be fellow Christians. They may have theological differences with the Catholic Church but they’re not particularly biased against individual Catholics. The problem typically comes from members of allegedly “non-denominational Christian” churches. They reject the label “Protestant” because they do not consider themselves to be protesting against anything. They refuse to acknowledge the historical fact that for the first millennium of Christianity, to be a Christian was to be a Catholic and have this delusional belief that Christianity disappeared around the time of the deaths of the early apostles and magically reappeared in 15th century with Martin Luther et. al.
