Obama ‘Strongly Objects’ to Religious Liberty Amendment
Fox News Radio ^ | June 12, 2013 | Todd Starnes

Posted on 06/13/2013 5:16:46 AM PDT by rarestia

The Obama Administration “strongly objects” to a proposed amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act on Wednesday that would have protected the religious rights of soldiers – including evangelical Christian service members who are facing growing hostility towards their religion.

The amendment was authored by Rep. John Fleming, R-La. It would have “required the Armed Forces to accommodate ‘actions and speech’ reflecting the conscience, moral, principles or religious beliefs of the member.”

The Obama Administration said the amendment would have a “significant adverse effect on good order, discipline, morale, and mission accomplishment.”

I would have thought the shootings, rapings, and Commander-In-Chief refusals to protect and defend servicemen under attack was having a significant adverse effect on those things, but what do I know?

Why is ONLY Islam protected.

THEY behead .. there is no reporting.
THEY crucify .. there is no reporting.
THEIR mosques are NOT examined by the NSA or IRS
which instead concentrated on Christians and Jews
and Veterans and Tea Party.
THEIR people are weaponized (MANPADs, rockets, $$$)
THEY ARE IMMUNE from ObamaCARE.
THEY are released on mass and protected (Hasan, COLE, ...)

Sharia Law is a different matter entirely.

If you are not permitted religious freedom, what kind of country are you fighting for?

This anti-Christian, anti-American, fecal-brained loser shouldn't be allowed to visit the White House, never mind live there. What a bad joke on America.

The Obama Administration said the amendment would have a “significant adverse effect on good order, discipline, morale, and mission accomplishment.”

But building wiccan ceremony sites at the US Air Force Academy doesn’t? Kissing the muslims and calling one of their attacks on an US Army base doesn’t? Taking marching orders from CAIR doesn’t? Running scared from Mikey Weinstien doesn’t? Shoving open homosexuality unto the services doesn’t?

That's no surprise. Of course freedom of religion would have a significant adverse effect on accomplishment of Obama's evil and anti-American mission.

It is IMO from reading over time they are trying to, and actually are by deeming it so establishing traditional American values, the traditional American mores as the enemy of the people. This is all part of the “fundamental change” that is taking place under their stewardship towards the ultimate goal of New World Order.

America, America’s sovereignty, America’s values, America’s mores, must all be destroyed, because America has always been the protector of the little guy around the World who wants Liberty, and Justice for all. Eliminate the protection by the USA, and the NWO is right around the corner. The Marxist’s win.

It’s Psy-ops, it’s a war, and we haven’t yet recognized the war as we are too focused on their abuse of our Constitution to see they are establishing themselves who are in actuality the enemy as the good guys, and we who celebrate our Nation, our Constitution, our GOD are the enemies.

It’s a slick move, and unless we can trigger the alarm long, and loud America will sleep right through the transition until it’s too late to do anything about it.

Actually, they’re right. This is a bit more nuanced than it first appears. Change Christian to Islam and think about it.

We really don’t need any new laws. We need to start removing existing laws standing in the way.

“The Obama Administration said the amendment would have a ‘significant adverse effect on good order, discipline, morale, and mission accomplishment.’ “

What would Chairman Obama know about that ? He’s never served a day in his life and thinks AR-15’s are military weapons. My cats, Bubbles and Bonkers, have seen more combat than him.

Idiots with concussions make more sense.

Few atheists in foxholes. Religious faith is a force multiplier for our military. I don’t think other recent changes have increased readiness, though. Looks like a another step in the trend to weaken our military.

Not at all. It’s meant to transform the military.

Consider a military filled with atheists, queers, and moslems.

Imagine how much easier it will be to command such a military to oppress the American people than a military filled with those who hold traditional Judeo-Christian values.
