Does this leave you a little ill at ease?
I found this "Challenge Coin" today on the internet. Versions for each branch of service are available.
Are there not limits on what one can use the official seals of government agencies for? Can one use the service seals to promote obviously sectarian religious beliefs?
Is the mission of the US military "to stand against the devil's schemes"? If so, which schemes? To many who read Ephesians as part of their faith, unjust war is a scheme of the devil.
Is that a Crusader? If so, not only Muslims would be offended. Orthodox Christians still remember the sack of Constantinople.
For me, this is much more than a little bit unsettling. It's offensive.
