can you point me to your force for the US military ever burning a Bible?
(CNN) -- Military personnel threw away, and ultimately burned, confiscated Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages amid concern they would be used to try to convert Afghans, a Defense Department spokesman said Tuesday.
The unsolicited Bibles sent by a church in the United States were confiscated about a year ago at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan because military rules forbid troops of any religion from proselytizing while deployed there, Lt. Col. Mark Wright said.

Military burns unsolicited Bibles sent to Afghanistan
That Christian Troops are encouraged to fully exercise their First Amendment Freedoms during on Off duy Hours to include the distribution of Bibles to the indigenous population as well as conducting Christian Outreach and Bible study programs.
Oh you cannot? Oh because they have been denied their First Amendment Rights to practice their faith during their Off Duty Hours.. to spend their own money to provide Bible to Afgani people.. Oh so distroying Korans is a great offense and not protected speach under the First Amendment.. But Crapping on the American Flag and the US Government confiscating and distroying Bible isn't
JAGs.. they play the darn’dest games don't they?
US Afghan Bibles ‘confiscated’
“Central Command General Order No. 1 specifically forbids proselytizing of any faith, religion or practice. The footage came from documentary filmmaker Brian Hughes”
The U.S. military is confirming that it has destroyed some Bibles belonging to an American soldier serving in Afghanistan.
Reuters News says the Bibles were confiscated and destroyed after Qatar-based Al Jazeer television showed soldiers at a Bible class on a base with a stack of Bibles translated into the local Pashto and Dari languages. The U.S. military forbids its members on active duty — including those based in places like Afghanistan — from trying to convert people to another religion.
