On A Mission From God
At this point L.E.R.G. cannot keep the incredulity from his voice...
Now, Great Britain is the most secular nation in the world and this may have been what prompted the reporters incredulity. No doubt he fed into every of the contractors prejudices about foreigners and "media elites" with that comment.
However, when the British press interview somebody from Her Majesty's forces about going into action the squaddie ( or Jasper ) will say that they are going to do "their job" and, when questioned about their feelings the reply is "it's my job". God has no place in the thinking of your average British soldier.
The Contractors were carrying MP5 ( an automatic weapon ) which means that the prohibition on contractors carrying anything other than pistols has obviously been lifted. A worrying development considering their inability to rationally judge the dangers around them.
