Here's one story I can't wait to see play out.
the name of religious tolerance--if by "religious tolerance" you mean
"let's silence those evil Christians"--the Pentagon has issued an odd
notice that military personal may face a court martial for speaking
about their faith.
According to the Breitbart story,
Pentagon personal appointed by President Obama (Bless His Holy Name)
have met with the God-hating Michael Weinsten (no jokes, please) about
this new policy, which amounts to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" for religious
people. From the story:
(....Weinstein is the head of
the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says
Christians--including chaplains--sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in
the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of
“spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also
asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are
“enemies of the Constitution.”)
So a solider, airman,
Marine, or sailor can be essentially charged with a federal crime for
exercising the free expression of their religion. Because the definition
of "proselytizing", according to Weinstein (no jokes!) is so poor, you
get a sense from the story that it truly is a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"
Of course, one could say we need to make
an apples to apples comparison here. Getting kicked out of the military
for buggering somebody in the butt isn't the same as being locked up for
the Lord, but I disagree.
Nobody said gay soldiers couldn't be gay, they just couldn't
talk about it or be open about it, and there were consequences if they
were caught. Weinstein isn't saying religious soldiers can't be
religious....they just can't talk about it....or be in the open about it....and, according to this article, there are consequences if they are caught. Sounds similar to me.
we not assume that a "court martial" of a religious person for speaking
of their beliefs is the same as gay soldiers being "dismissed" for
their life style? Is
it now fair to discriminate against religious people because of the
earlier gay discrimination? Which, by the way, was put in place by
under the current regime it is. I suppose if Christians were nicer to
gay people, this wouldn't be a problem. See? It's all God's fault for
being intolerant. If only he was as wishy-washy as everybody else.
have a fear of religion (if by "religion" you mean "Christianity")
because it creates an allegiance to something other than the State. And
that is bad. Christianity must be destroyed, just like it was in the
Soviet Union. You can't have the subjects relying on God when the State
is supposed to be god. All of the other religions are milk toast hokey
traditions that don't mean much, and liberals know that, so those other
outfits get a pass. Notice Weinstein doesn't mention that it's a no-no
to to a Buddhist.
liberals don't like something, it must have power they can't control
(guns, anybody?) so to that I say....Praise the Lord....And pass the
And, I'm serious, no Weinstein jokes. It's too easy.
