The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”.No word if the "no proselytizing" rule also applies to Islam, the one religion Obama sympathizes with.
The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.
(From our earlier report: 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.”)
Being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.
Inconvenient fact for Obama and these Christian-haters in his Regime. Religious liberty was one of the major reasons for not only the creation of the United States, but also the First Amendment. If there is any "treason" as Mr. Weinstein suggests, it is being done by him and Obama. Reminder that the First Amendment was established not only to prevent a state-run religion, but also to prevent the government from impeding the free exercise of religion. That would make Obama and his little atheist flunky Weinstein the real "enemies of the Constitution."
Lets be honest with ourselves. Obama is a guy who only uses the vague term "extremists" when it comes to Islamic jiahist terrorism. But under his Regime, Christians, veterans and Tea Party activists have been called terrorism threats.
Obama has also mocked Christians and the Bible:
President Barack Obama had better clear this up today, right now. Surely he is just allowing his handlers to throw up this kind of ridiculous, amoral, un-American trial balloon. I call on Obama to address this immediately with the American public, clear it up, and renounce these reports as the nonsense they surely in God's name must be.
