Anti Christian -- Diane this one who's my guests Iran probably not yeah yeah.
You know I actually come down on the fact.
And -- The point of these groups OK which there -- -- -- very wrong but personally if there's only one chapel.
In Afghanistan for example on a base and -- multiple religions.
Who want to use that chapel are sacred space -- shouldn't should be no permanent.
For example on the exterior or even on the interior because as being used by others and I actually would say not because I -- Would like -- wanted you know have lots of different views and now.

The government should not establish one religion over another and in this case I think the very good thing -- -- there are many different religious beliefs represented.
That they should not establish one over the other in terms of religious and what -- -- -- isn't chat it's chapel but they can use that that's sacred space as they may -- call it.

Eight cross and outside of -- chapel that is being used by many different religious groups include not Jewish and Muslim.

And you only have 1 -- Eastern Europe in Afghanistan you your honor at at a military base will then yes I think there should be -- space that could be neutral.
And then when it's time your time to have that religious service you do whatever you want to that space.
In other in other places for example the military academies.
-- seen several different churches dedicated churches -- that should not go away.
See -- tonight -- the and -- here well you know what.

We should respect the principles of democracy not because democracy is perfect but it's the best institution for.
