Joe Haldeman predicted this...

A hat-tip to my blogging neighbour, ex-US diplomat Gerry Loftus, for linking me to this horrifying article from this monthy's Harper's about the infiltration of Christian evangelicals into the US military. Joe Haldeman's near-future novel Forever Peace has this scenario leading almost to the destruction of the planet Earth. (Heinlein, typically, has this the other way round.)

Normally I'm disinclined to weigh in on atheists vs believers, other than telling people to get a grip, but this is really very disturbing indeed...
