Big MacChristian Soldiers

I have enjoyed hearing the observations (and watching the antics) of Christian Garzone, a crew member of the USS Nimitz featured on Carrier. He's funny, articulate, and wise. Though I suspect our politics wouldn't converge often, a comment he made on the military, religion, and our influences abroad resonated with me:

"Do I think of ourselves as Christian soldiers? Yeah, we are, in a way. But do I think we're imposing Christianity into the Middle East...? No, I don't.

I think we're imposing our culture...which incorporates Christianity, but incorporates McDonald's a little more."
