"When you look at the context of the whole statement, it doesn't support their story," he told FoxNews.com.

And in early May, news reports said that an anti-Christian crusader had proposed new rules for the Pentagon so that military-service members could be court-martialed for sharing their faith. But the initial reports on these matters were exaggerated, taken out...
