Bible verses adorned the covers of the Pentagon's Worldwide Intelligence Updates during the early days of the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a report by Robert Draper, published in the June issue of GQ, has revealed.
The cover of the March 31 update pictured a tank in the desert, with Ephesians 6:13 printed above: "Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything to stand."
Another, dated April 3, shows tanks roaring through a majestic arch of swords, with the text "Open the gates that the righteous nation may enter, the nation that keeps faith" (Isaiah 26:2)
In his "On Faith" blog for Washington Post, David Gibson contemplates the equally rephrehensible possibilties that either Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon were trying the manipulate the religious beliefs of President Bush or that covers were the work of a dedicated corps of Christian military officers who see themselves as "spiritual warriors" and "government paid missionaries."
See these covers and several more samples at the GQ site.
