KFUO Audio: Religious freedom in the U.S. military

Posted by on May 18, 2017 in News | Comments Off on KFUO Audio: Religious freedom in the U.S. military


Roger Drinnon, a U.S. Air Force veteran and LCMS Director of Editorial Services and Media Relations, joined Worldwide KFUO’s Kip Allen during a “Free to be Faithful” program to discuss religious freedom in the U.S. military.

The military is charged with defending American liberty as defined in the freedoms outlined in the U.S. Constitution. The free exercise of religion is one of the most important of those basic rights.

  • How is this freedom treated within the military?
  • Are U.S. service members, who risk their lives each day defending the Constitution, allowed the same freedom they are defending for the rest of America?

Listen to Drinnon and Allen discuss this important religious liberty issue.
