Fort George G. Meade, Maryland is a high-tech media-savvy military base. It’s home to NSA, the new United States Cyber Command, and the largest joint Public Affairs training academy – Defense Information School (DINFOS).
Fort Meade is a little brainier than most bases… So, how the hell did this happen?

Mike and Trisha Fox run the website Marriage For Today, and travel the region doing these seminars. They also write books and really awful columns on the topic. They also appear on television standing up for the worst Christianity has to offer. This really is a perfect storm of stupid. I can’t believe this happened at Fort Meade.
How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways.
1) It’s illegal!
Fort Meade’s ACS / FAP can’t provide a such a forum for evangelicals only. Where is the support for all the other religious demographics? Why didn’t they adhere to Joint Ethics Regulation 3-211?
