Wall of Honor or Wall of Shame?

A reader writes to tell me about an “honor wall” at his church featuring various military men and women from all branches of the military. But is this a wall of honor or a wall of shame? I’m sure I have mentioned this somewhere before, but is seems to me that no matter what the military does, no matter what country it invades or occupies, no matter how many people it kills or maims—the government can count on churches to defend and honor the military no matter what. American churches must be demilitarized.
