If anyone reading this is unfamiliar with the latest assault on religion in the military – mostly aimed at Christianity – please read about it here. This post is an update about the assault by Obama’s Pentagon goons.
Troops are no longer allowed to talk about their faith.
The Pentagon got their advice from Mikey Weinstein, President of the Freedom from Religion Foundation. If you go to his site, you might be shocked at the viciousness aimed at Christians and at religion.
Breitbart.com has publicized the assault and the Pentagon, seeking to clarify, made it worse by explaining what they meant.
They claim that soldiers can “evangelize” but they can’t “proselytize.”
“Service members can share their faith (evangelize), but must not force unwanted intrusive attempts to convert others of any faith or no faith to one’s beliefs (proselytization),” a Pentagon official told news sources
The Pentagon said that Chaplains and Christians won’t be court-martialed any time soon. The only time the problem will come up is if it interferes with a mission, the Pentagon official said.
The problem is that this is a very broad definition and it gives the military Fascist powers over their soldiers to pull out any time they please.
The official said:
.. all service members are free to exercise their constitutional right to practice their religion in a manner that is respectful of other individuals’ rights to follow their own belief systems; and in ways that are conducive to good order and discipline; and that do not detract from accomplishing the military mission.
If that were so, why would they go to a rabid anti-Christian Atheist to establish a rule on the issue?
Why would the Pentagon give a definition in which they distinguish “evangelize” and “proselytize?” The words mean exactly the same thing.
This rule is meant to intimidate soldiers. If they don’t know what the rule means and are in constant jeopardy, they won’t express their religious beliefs at all.
Look at the definitions and you tell me what the difference is.
1. Convert or seek to convert (someone) to Christianity.
2. Preach the Christian gospel.
- Convert or attempt to convert (someone) from one religion, belief, or opinion to another.
- Advocate or promote (a belief or course of action): “Davis wanted to proselytize his ideas.”
This is why PC is so dangerous. It is a warping of the true meaning of words in order to change how we think and to change our values.
Our soldiers defend us at the risk of their own lives and we won’t let them express their faith.
This rule is aimed at Christians and it is the direct result of extreme secularism.
