Posted on 06/12/2013 4:33:15 PM PDT by greyfoxx39
Breitbart News reported last week that Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) passed an amendment in the House Armed Services Committee protecting religious speech of service members in the military. President Barack Obama has now threatened to veto the bill if it passes the full House and Senate.
In other words, Obama says he will veto any bill that forbids his appointees or officers from telling a soldier that he cannot mention Jesus during prayer or have a Bible on his desk, or that keeps those appointees from telling a chaplain (who is an ordained clergyman) what religious teachings he is allowed to give in worship services, or what spiritual counseling he can give to another soldier.
Ambassador Ken Blackwell, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Commission, tells Breitbart News:
President Obama is waging a war on religion. He and Chuck Hagel are denying the most basic rights to those who put their lives on the line to protect all of our rights. It is shameful and appalling. I am confident that congressional leadership will show courage to stand up for our troops against this radical assault on religious liberty in the military.

President Obama is waging a war on religion.
You are correct.
No, Obama is waging a war on Christianity. Period.
Obama’s assualt on the military contines. With corrupt generals like Petraeus, Casey and others; allowing queers to infiltrate; and now a full on assault on Christians - the end is nearly here.
No - obama is waging war on Christianity...
President Obama is waging a war on Christianity, Islam is OK because that’s His.
Right out of the old muzzie handbook.....kill all the Christians and Jews.
Maybe they should get rid of all chaplains in the military. What good is a Christian chaplain who cannot talk about Jesus. Who needs Wiccan chaplains, Muslim chaplains, etc.
Note that if Congress is actually serious about this military religious expression bill, as opposed to trying to win votes for next election even if Obama vetoes it, that Article I, Section 7, Clause 2 of Constitution shows that Congress can override a presidential veto with enough votes.
No, he is waging a war on Christianity. He has no problem with Islam being forced on the troops.
...Bastards... the correct term
The recent $375 million White House renovation included new transgender bathrooms and Muslim foot baths.
Obama IS the Anti-Christ!
