Christianity is under attack in America by the Obama administration and the main stream news media. The Pentagon has released a statement that confirms that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith.
According to Breitbart News, Mikey Weinstein, was recently appointed as a Pentagon consultant to develop new policies on religious tolerance. Weinstein recently wrote in the Huffington Post: Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.
Based on this statement, it appears that Weinstein knows nothing about religion or tolerance. Anything seems to be accepted these days, except being a Christian. Weinstein and his rabid, anti-Christian views are disgusting. He is simply pushing his own personal, hate filled agenda, and Obama is giving him the platform to do it.
Our First Amendment states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Obama’s administration is saying that it is a crime that could result in prison for those in uniform to share their faith. Since when does joining our military prevent you from having First Amendment rights?
As of this writing, it was reported by Fox News that the Department of Defense hadn’t actually made the changes to their policy, but are looking into it. Weinstein, head of Military Religious Freedom Foundation, is on a mission. He has made outrageous claims in the past including saying Christians in the military are guilty of ‘treason’ and of committing an act of ‘spiritual rape’ as serious a crime as ‘sexual assault’. He has asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are ‘enemies of the Constitution.’
Based on what we know about Weinstein, it makes you wonder why the Obama administration selected him for this position.It is clear that Weinstein is clueless on the religious beliefs of our countries founding fathers. It’s time for Christians in this country to speak out to protect what is dearest to our hearts.
