What are the consequences of a Christian Fundamentalist takeover of the US military?

I was alarmed and frightened by today's report ( http://www.democracynow.org/2009/5/6/the_crusade_for_a_christian_military ) on the extent that Christian fundamentalists have infiltrated the US Armed Forces, and how they are using their institutionally sanctioned positions of power to proselytize to convert and create religious fervor and blood lust within their ranks and to convert overseas (Muslim) populations to Christianity.
The consequences associated with a US military in the hands of religious fundamentalists (see links below), not only on the the prospects for international peace, but also with regard the personal safety of Americans here at home (from direct action by US soldiers against us) are numerous and constitute a sufficient cause for alarm and action.


Is there really cause for concern?

There was a diary today on Daily Kos about the latest revelations concerning this issue. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/5/6/102710/335
Two Diarist on Daily Kos, troutfishing and dogemporer have done extensive research on the dominionist influence in the military. Bruce Wilson (troutfishing) is very active in the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF).
