PENTAGON CONFIRMS MAY COURT MARTIAL SOLDIERS WHO SHARE CHRISTIAN FAITH
Breitbart ^ | 1st may, 2013 | Ken kuklowski

Posted on 05/01/2013 2:07:58 PM PDT by yank in the UK

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...”.  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.

Maybe you should post it in "Breaking News" right below the one that's already there.

I’d say go for it.

The faster these guys come out in the open and take off their masks, the better.

Court-martial someone for sharing their Christian faith. Do it. I dare ya.

Surely Obama who is a Christian (so he says to the infidels) will tell the Pentagon to knock it off no?

“Someone needs to tell this SCHMUCK Mikey Weinstein that this flies in the face of the 1st amendment”

Correct me if I’m wrong here Freeper lawyers, but I don’t think serving soldiers have the same rights as civilians. They can’t, for example, publically call their officers (or CIC) names. Can anybody who knows fill us in on how (or if) soldier’s rights differ from civilians?

The Pentagon needs a good cleaning out...too many bloated generals that do nothing for the defense of our country.

One decent president (oxymoron these days) can, as CIC, order this crap away. Court martial anyone that says no.

The reason for the chaplain’s corps is the guard their religious rights. The medal of honor given Father Kapaun is recognizes its role in the military.

Why that's OK, that's observing a “Civil Right” allowed to all (except Christians, or even Jews, who don't proselytize.)

far too many officers who care about their promotions, far too many who serve to get their freebies.
Lets see how much it’s changed.
homosexuals\
cross dresses
women on subs
women in combat
cross removed at a camp in Afghanistan
Generals might be judged by those who are under him
homosexual women who has never done anything but a desk job gets to over see Arlington
Now this.

Damn right , get rid of many of these PC officers who only care for their own promotions and not for country

PC and affirmative action

Look, just cuz you Jews don’t evangalize shouldn’t be a barrier to how we conduct ourselves as fishers of men.

You do want the US to continue supporting your Motherland don’t you?

Well, keep it up and I’d be happy to end my support and lobby for all of Palestine to be given back to the Palestinians.

The Ft Hood murderer yelled Allah Ahkbar. I wonder if they added proselytizing t the murder charges?

It is getting close to the time when the military (with outside help) rises up and takes this country back.

I AM NOT ADAVOCATING this happens but would not be surprised if it does.

People need to sharply discourage military service nowadays. This is definitely not the one I was in all those years.

Its “OK” for one of our MUSLIM military officers to kill several of our soldiers and this is “workplace violence” but the Christian soldiers get persecuted just for being Christian? INSANE!!!!!

Governor Palin: President Obama ‘Better Clear This Up Today’

Posted on May 01 2013 - 2:40 PM - Posted by: |

Governor Palin issued the following statement this morning:

Sarah Palin        
 @SarahPalinUSA

President Barack Obama had better clear this up today, right now. Surely he is just allowing his handlers to... http://fb.me/27q1yo6UE

She refers to an article over at Breitbart that reports the following:

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…”.

Absolutely appalling.  Please take a moment to read the entire article here.

Update:

Here is a copy of her full statement via her Facebook page:

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.

How many muzzies in Iraq accepted Christ because of the witness of Christian soldiers there? THAT’s what Ohomo wants to put a stop to.

this will result in the fascists being able to use the military against the American people. The only people who will stay in are fags and muslims.

Most couldn’t comprehend that Lucifer and his New World Order are the real agents behind this....and that lucifer has real people in most government agencies under his control.

George Orwell was more right than most could imagine.

Lucifer’s plan is a communist/socialist world...and literally a one world government. Christians/Patriots/Conservatives are in grave danger...and they don’t even know it.

The tribulation isn’t far off.

Here's some simple "arithmetic." Not only is Congress responsible for legislating UCMJ with respect to its Section 8, Article I-limited powers evidenced by the link below, but also consider the following.

The Founding States made the very first numbered clauses in the Constitution, Sections 1-3 of Article I, to clarify that all legislative powers of the federal government are vested in the elected members of Congress. So if there are federal military regulations which prohibit proselytization then I think that both Congress and military brass have some explaining to do concerning why they are threatening the constitutionally protected rights of members of the military, especially since military leaders as well as federal lawmakers have sworn to protect and defend the Constitution.

Uniform Code of Military Justice

So what am I possibly overlooking?

There is no mention of any other faith. That’s because no other faith is a problem. It’s the Christians they are after. Obviously!

Now we’re getting somewhere.

You’re absolutely right, and this is only part of it. The ending of DADT, allowing women into real combat positions and now this, are clearly part of their plan. How soon until they (homosexuals, liberal fascists, etc) are the majority in the military or hold most key positions to direct the military to come after anyone different than them? I say before Autumn 2016... maybe by end of 2014.

Most generals already tow the party line no matter who’s the CinC, and with a spiraling economy and Patriot exodus from the military, it won’t be difficult to switch out a few hundred thousand from each service to the tipping point. My concern is what will SOCOM do... There’s already a lot of PC BS there, too.

Very important to link this to be the POLICY OF BARACK OBAMA AS PRESIDENT. He should be called on to stop this policy in its tracks as the CIC, or he “owns” the policy of open hostility to Christians in this country.
