It is their right – and perhaps their religious duty!
While on duty they should do their duty to the best of their ability, and should spend no time on anything else.

The best weapon we have to counter all religion-related wars and crimes is the removal of religion as an excuse for irrational and violent behaviour

To export democracy it’s necessary to own democracy. Is that ?

Democracy doesn’t need religion. Religion tolerance needs democracy.

The best weapon we have to counter terrorism and talibanization is conversion to Christ. Any person has the right to enter the fold of Christ.While critics says that conversion of Muslims to Christianity is offensive, but if this is the only way to save people from terrorism, violence and other inhumane acts such that even the terrorists themselves will experience the same conversion and will be enlightened of what a God believer should be, then so be it. There is less bloodshed and violence. After all, firearms is not the solution to these problems but love. Change their attitude from hate to love and terrorism will cease. I hope, the Catholic soldiers will do the same thing, to convert them to Christ and be a contributor in building the civilization of Love.
