Ostensibly, to accommodate Muslims and other religious groups streaming across our borders legally and illegally, Barack Obama has altered military guidelines to allow for skullcaps, turbans, facial hair, long, uncleansed head hair, piercings, religious body art, and so on while they are on military duty. Muslim headscarves will probably also be permitted.
It isn’t a blanket approval and will be approved on a case-by-case basis but it’s basically the open door.
There is a different standard for American Christians.
Our military in Afghanistan have to abide by Ramadan diets and they had to take the steeple off their church and remove the windows with crosses. Military personnel can wear crosses but only if they are hidden. Christmas trees at Christmas time are frowned upon or banned.
A United States Marine, Monifa Sterling, was convicted at a court-martial for refusing to remove a Bible verse on her computer – a verse of Scripture the military determined “could easily be seen as contrary to good order and discipline.”
The verse is simply, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”
Ms. Sterling (pictured below) is out of work and Liberty Institute is working on her case.
We will soon look like the enemy and, who knows, maybe there are some Nidal Hussain’s in there.
Our Judeo-Christian values are being erased by this president and his minions.
This is more than PC, it’s pandering or even transforming.
One of the things that is most important in the military is the discipline. Uniforms reflect that. It’s the same with the police. Obama wants them to have a “softer” look also.
We are a nation of whatever.
Oh no, wait, we’re actually a Muslim nation.
