Where exactly is this country headed? There is going to be one hell of a civil war coming...The breaking point for this lunacy is going to kick start something I'm afraid few people will want to see or deal with. My hatred for these whack nuts on the left only grows with each story like this. Their garbage stinks more every day.
Do you have a definitive source for that picture, please?
What is wrong with this picture?
Yup, the war is coming.
And methinks the Army will be on the correct side when it comes.
After all, it’s the libtard Pelosi who wants returning vets to be denied the rights to own weapons.
It’s not too hard to figure out why.
I see the corrupt media is not mentioning this yet again they cover instead.
Is our side going to do something with the media or shall we just let the socialists pass laws against the very basic fact of why this country was founded, religious freedom and when will our side \GO AFTER THE MEDIA
They will fire on their countrymen too.
There is nothing quite like the truth for dispelling hate propaganda. For instance, imagine modifying the hate directed at Christians, and replacing it with groups like “liberals, socialists, national socialists, antisemites, communists, and Islamists”?
Then anonymously repost it where left wingers would find it.
Retitle it “Atheist Anti-Human and Fanatical Extremism”
They would lose their collective marbles.
I’ve found that those who shout tolerance are the most intolerant
Part of me wants to think this was an isolated incident, a case of one commander’s biases contaminating a training program. The other part of me suspects this was a trial balloon to see what type of reaction it would receive.
That makes Pope Francis and Billy Graham extremist.
And the usual screws from Congress.
Web search on the terms (without quotes) ‘US Army equal opportunity religious extremism presentation Pennsylvania’ and look at the multitude of articles. The Army is saying this slide was the work of a single instructor and neither Army policy nor “chopped” by any Army chain of command. The instructor said she got her information from the southern poverty law center (bastions of left wing thought). The splc said they never provided the military with any information on religious extremism.
If only that were so.
This is true only in the broadest sense of nominal Christianity.
I can believe that - she was probably an 'Equal Opportunity' candidate
~ A Vision of George Washington ~
“The Birth, the progress and the destiny of the United States”
The father of our country, George Washington, was a man of prayer. Many of us have read of how he went to the thicket many times to pray during the winter his army was at Valley Forge. However, little publicity has been give to the vision and prophecy he received at that time.
The account of this vision was given in 1859 by an old soldier. He gave it to a writer, Wesley Bradshaw, who published it. In the vision God revealed to George Washington that three great perils would come upon the republic. He was given to know that America was going through the first peril at that time. The old soldier who told the story of the vision said the nation would soon see the account verified by the second peril descending upon the land.
We give the account here as printed in the U.S. war veterans paper The National Tribune, in December 1880. The National Tribune became, “The Stars and Stripes”, and this article was later reprinted in that publication.
I do not know whether it is owing to the anxiety of my mind, or what, but this afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaging in preparing a dispatch, something in the apartment seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite to me a singularly beautiful being. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of the visit. A second, a third, and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of the eyes.
By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I tried once more to speak, but my tongue became useless, as if paralyzed. A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor.
Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed to fill with sensations, and grew luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor also becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations I sometimes imagine accompanying death. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move. All were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly on my companion.
Presently I heard a voice say,
“Son of the Republic, look and learn,”
while at the same time my visitor extended an arm eastward. I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon the strange scene. Before me lay, out in one vast plain all the countries of the world — Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America lay billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.
“Son of the Republic”, said the same mysterious voice as before,
“Look and learn.”
At that moment I beheld a dark shadowy being, like an angel, standing, or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left he cast some over Europe. Immediately a cloud arose from these countries and joined in mid-ocean. For awhile it remained stationary, and then it moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashed of lightning gleamed through at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American People.
A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud drew back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows it sank from view.
A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying,
“Son of the Republic, look and learn.”
I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and town and cities spring up one right after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them. Again, I heard the mysterious voice say,
“Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.”
And this time a dark shadowy angel turned his face southward. From Africa I saw an ill omened spectra approach our land. It flitted slowly and heavily over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued look I saw a bright angel on whose brow was traced the word ‘Union.’ He was bearing the American flag. He placed the flag between the divided nation and said,
“Remember, ye are brethren. “
Instantly the inhabitants, casting down their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.
Again I heard a mysterious voice saying,
“Son of the Republic, look and learn.”
At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene. From each of these continents arose thick black clouds that were soon joined into one. And throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men. These men, moving with the cloud marched by land and sailed by sea to America, which country was enveloped in the volume of the cloud. And I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the villages, towns and cities, which I had seen spring up.
As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I again heard the mysterious voice saying,
“Son of the Republic, look and learn.”
When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast. Instantly a light, as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments of the dark cloud, which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shown the word ‘Union,’ and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well-nigh over come, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks, and renewed battle.
Again amid the fearful voice of the conflict I heard the mysterious voice say,
“Son of the Republic, look and learn.”
As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped the water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark clouds rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious.
Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seem them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard cried with a loud voice:
“While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.”
And taking from his brow the crown, which blazoned the word ‘Union,’ he placed it down upon the standard while the people, kneeling down said, ‘Amen.’
The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor, I at first beheld. This also disappeared, and I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor who, in the same voice I heard before said,
“Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful for her is the third. But the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and Union.”
With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been showed me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.”
Thanks for sharing! It’s very frustrating to see the direction our government and general society is heading.
This IS the Alinsky method.
“76% of the country is Christian”
A lot of people say they are Christian. Obama says he is a Christian. What does God say in his word about who is a Christian?
“Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?”
“Then I will prophess unto them, I NEVER knew you: Depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:22,23)
My point was that the United States, whether they like it or not, is a Christian country, and declaring war on the majority of US citizens might not be the brightest idea.
Dude..you post THIS over here and then disagree with the VERY same premise on a different thread???
I'm going to get whiplash following your logic! :-)
