Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

National Security Threat?

Fox News

A group that advocates for religious neutrality in the military says Christian military officers who share their faith at work pose a threat to national security. The Cybercast News Service reports the Military Religious Freedom Foundation claims America's enemies "see us as invading imperialists and crusaders." It says evangelistic efforts by officers amount to "coercion" and "fanatical unconstitutional religious persecution."

The group has called for an investigation into a promotional video for a Christian organization that ministers to various government personnel — and featured four generals and three colonels wearing their uniforms.
