Crackdown on Christians triggers exodus from military A leading defender of Christians in the military says the crackdown on the free religious expression of Christians in uniform is increasing despite Pentagon assurances to the contrary, leading active-duty personnel to re-evaluate their careers and young Americans and their parents to reconsider service at all.

He said the growing number of stories is causing committed Christians to ask some uncomfortable questions. FULL REPORT
