How could they not freak out. From a persecuted christian viewpoint the world has turned upside down and Satan is loose in the armed forces. "We're doomed if we don't get the Obamanation out of office", I hear them wail.

Every time we become more accepting of others or learn more about how the universe really works, America gets worse for the Christian Conservative.

I don't think it's so much your average Christian conservative as it is hard-right evangelicals, who seem to have some serious issues dealing with reality & respecting boundaries whenever they're not allowed to have their way.

This was triggered by a series of problems, most notably the unhealthy relationship between some senior officers and fundies through the USAF Academy/Colorado Springs nexus.

Yep, exactly. You can read about the "why" of this kind of action at the Mililtary Religious Freedom Foundation--there's a trend of officers and base commanders abusing their authority to proselytize, and to hound non-Christians and non-believers that criticize this norm. Michael Weinstein and Chris Rodda (the latter also being one of the first to fact-check and criticize the now-omnipresent David Barton) are doing a very gutsy thing, and are taking some very ugly flack in the process. Rodda also blogs at FreeThoughtBlogs, and sometimes post the threatening and insulting messages she gets.
