As BAT's adjusting our trips to Afghanistan are fighting to keep the faith after the US military removed a large cross from the outside -- NATO army base.
The cross which was erected about a month ago it kept -- reportedly -- army regulations.
Joining us now with more stories Fox News radio host Todd starts -- -- Todd.
This is -- Marmol that's in Germany.
Northern Afghanistan sorry about that as a German based German base and post NATO forces in northern Afghan that's right.
And the US army is responsible for the chapel that's been there.
It was just dedicated back in September they built a new chapel -- which is up it's not a big church was stained glass windows.
But -- the military members that I talked to say -- this place makes him feel like they're back and hold and they put a big cross outside to to designate that this impact is the chapel but they've taken back toward the cross away because people were complaining that they've received complaints that -- I checked with the Pentagon and of the spokesperson told me that people didn't back complained.
They wouldn't tell me who or how many but they said they did receive complaints and sure enough that that the Pentagon says.
That this cross violates.
Here's what the -- pentagon officially says this is from the spokesperson.
Military chapels have to be open to all denominations.
And as such can't have permanent symbols of one particular religion or another.
Yet this this is big going on for a long time the last three years so it seems to things seemed to be changing that's right and 99.
I talked to some of some conservative leaders Tony Perkins from the family research council and they say this is this is a very scary trend with in the past three years.
-- we have seen crosses and other Christian symbols cleansed from the military.
Just had just last week at my website into the story about a cross in California Camp Pendleton.
That's that's under investigation right now because it may violate tonight regularly shut this thing is that these are supposed to be nondenominational.
Buildings correct for people to warship arrived at the question is what's the point of the chapel if you can't have religious symbols in the building and the military says that they have to be religiously neutral when they're not being used -- -- religious service what if there's a crescent.
The crescent for instance.
Well ahead at this same situation yet it is so the -- some people believe that if in fact it had been a crescent.
Then it would still be there and it would have been an issue.
But it seems as though every time there's a Christian symbol or there's a Christian prayer.
Operation Christmas child that -- -- the holiday a bit to get together to -- for for kids.
That came under fire at the air force academy because it had a Christian component so there seems to be a a threat here and it it it involves the Christian faith.
Will continue to investigate this sure you will be doing -- Soros give us any updates can find them Weldon.
