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!
Got a link? Google doesn't recognize the search.
“President Obama is waging a war on religion.”
To hell with that.He’s not waging a war on religion,He’s waging a war on Christianity and Judaism.
This guy is an in your face Muslim and there is No hiding it.He said that he would stand with the Muslims and he’s proving it here.
“Maybe they should get rid of all chaplains in the military”
I think the chaplains will leave since they can’t serve their soldiers. The word, Jesus, is not politically correct. But, hey, they could say, “Allah” and that would be cool. No, they will leave.
I have to believe this is the end times when Christians are set upon and the names God and Jesus are crushed out.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The anti-christ strikes again.
Doing it for the Muslim children.
I guess the political winds have shifted in an ugly direction.
Piece of sh7t!!!
Nobody who voted for this thug can ever be legitimately called a Christian.
Naaa, he's just a pipsqueak wanna-be.
I seriously doubt that the genuine Anti-Christ will need one or more teleprompters. After all, he is supposed to fool even some of the elect, if that were possible.
To deny a whole class of citizens their Constitutional protections (the military) should be an impeachable offense.
Obama hates Christianity, the Constitution, and capitalism.
This is a little confusing.
Which makes how many for him now? Is anyone keeping count?
An Honorable man would have fallen on his sword LONG ago!
While Sec of Defense Hagel is letting Barry do it.
Out military is under savage assault, on fiscal, religious, and fundamental foundations.
- According to a statement this week by Rep "Buck" McKeon (R-CA), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Obama has recklessly cut (and Congress has foolishly approved) the military so deep it is now on its knees: $330 Billion cut by Obama in 2009 transferred to his domestic agenda, $487 Billion cut by Obama in 2011, and now $650 Billion by Sequestration
- The Pentagon is furloughing 650,000 DoD teachers, maintainers, nurses, and engineers, presenting them with a 20% cut in pay, while Obama gives Billions to Muslim Brotherhood organizations who murder children
- Christianity is now almost outlawed in the US military: paintings in dining halls that had a Bible verse in them are ripped off the walls, Bibles are banned in military inns, Bibles have been burned in Afghanistan, prayers are banned or highly restricted, and mentioning the name of Jesus is forbidden
My conclusion is the American people don't care. Even members of this board mocked Sequestration, and what it was going to do to the military. Few speak out about the loss of religious rights to the military. Even if there is outrage, it lasts but a day.
Shame on this nation. May God have mercy on us all.
Man, Obummer’s got some real evil looking eyes and I’m not exagerrating. He’s filled with a lifelong rage and seeks real revenge against his enemies. Every waking moment of his life he’s angry, but he can’t let the world know about it. So he likes to play it cool like he’s Mr. Smooth, one hip and happening dude. He thinks he can escape his rage mentality with his sodomite lifestyle, but it only makes him worse, since it stops him from feeling guilty about anything. So how does he get revenge, well play a con game. Fool the world into believing he’s the real deal peace nik, the savior of the global economy and the untouchable President of the world’s most powerful nation. But that’s not enough, because he’s victimized by the man and the man is anybody who doesn’t support him 100%. He’s gotta stop that and he believes deservedly so. If he won’t then his enemies could harm him. So he’s gotta be defiant, he’s gotta be Leftist Joe and he’s gotta be your master. so for Obama it’s all about ‘stick it to the man.’
But if I judge eyes correcly then Hagel will crack. He’s beginning to realize he got punked. He’s gonna start squawking because he may actually feel some shame. He thought he could play a positive influence over Obama, but now he realizes that this type of thinking was a mistake. I don’t blame Hagel for that, some people such as myself see a person floundering and we think we can help them. But I’ll never forget what a Catholic bishop once told me in a private meeting. “You can’t help those who refuse to ask for help. If a person doesn’t want to change they won’t change.”
