That is what I meant when I said, "...create a culture where the traditional pools of recruits no longer join and those already in leave as soon as possible." People who self identify with being Conservative/Christian are typically patriotic and form the bulk of the pool of people that the military recruits from.
I also find it ironic to see so many people saying much of what I said last Friday, yet I came under attack by "supposed" former military for saying it. I even see some of those who attacked me chiming in today with their $.02 and aren't attacking anyone. Careful folks, there are scorpions among us.
