I am not Catholic either but you seem to miss the point of this news. Is it OK with you that the gov’t is preventing its military from practicing their religion as long as it is not your religion?
Of course it is "okay" if they "prevent" this. You see, the problem with the question is that there is no "practicing" real Christianity. Only those who have overlain biblical Christianity with a "religion" need to practice anything. Perhaps they expunged John 4:21ff, "Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But an hour is coming, and NOW IS, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers."
