According to a report by Jason Leopold for Truthout, “the Pentagon's top chaplain opened its doors” in June to H.O.P.E. Ministries International, led by David Kistler, for “two days at the facility proselytizing, passing out Christian literature, and ‘saving souls’” as part of the group’s “DC Crusade.”
Col. William Broome, the Pentagon chaplain, and his deputy, Maj. Alan Pomaville, invited Kistler's group to speak to DOD employees at a Pentagon prayer breakfast June 6 and in the Pentagon auditorium June 7, according to a copy of a recent newsletter published by H.O.P.E Ministries. Kistler, according to written statements made to his congregation, spent a considerable amount of his time at the Pentagon proselytizing to DOD employees in violation of federal law.
"I am thrilled to report that three souls were saved among those who attended those events," Kistler wrote in the newsletter sent to members of his congregation.
According to Leopold, Kistler has preached to his congregation that President George W. Bush will be taken up to heaven in the Rapture, but Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton will be left behind.
