Is the Pentagon discriminating against Christians?
Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) said hes been monitoring a steady stream of religious discrimination complaints over the past four years from Christian soldiers.
Its been a steady attack on faith and religious freedom that weve seen in our military like weve never seen before, Forbes told Fox News. We are getting a lot of calls from soldiers saying were afraid of going to church, were afraid to be seen praying, were afraid that would hurt our careers, our promotions.
Forbes grilled Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel about religious liberty issues during a House Armed Services Committee on Thursday.
Forbes asked questions about instances of the Christian faith coming under attack in the military including:
Commanders barred from disclosing any programs that are tied to the Chaplaincy or any programs involving religion;
The Air Force banning the word God from an Air force patch logo even though the reference had no religious connotation;
A Navy directive that banned Bibles at Walter Reed Hospital;
An Army Reserve training program that listed Evangelical Christians and Catholics as examples of religious extremism;
An Army email that listed prominent Christian ministries like the Family Research Council and American Family Association as domestic hate groups.
At least 40 lawmakers have signed a letter penned by Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) demanding the Secretary of Army apologize and investigate the domestic hate group email that was sent by a lieutenant colonel at Fort Campbell in Kentucky.....

Disgusting comments from some b*tch on the comment section here. Surprise surprise, its another member of the Freedom From Religion caucus of freaks.
Just lie and say you’re a commie loving Muslim thats ready to do whatever it takes to destroy the U.S. after you enlist and watch your rank progress to General with 4 years...but only if 0 knows about it...
Suck it up and do it anyway, you babies.
Ever worn the uniform, FRiend?
Those who have never worn a uniform do not understand that once the Oath is taken the Constitution no longer applies. In many cases prisoners in penitentiaries have more rights.
Peace be with you
Yup, your Constitutional rights are returned with your DD 214.
Once Christians are forced out of the military, you will see a very different America.
The godless see their chance and they are taking it. They are trying to run the table.
Ever worn the uniform, FRiend?
Ever read the New Testament, FRiend?
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.
For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
-- 1 John 4:18-19
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?
-- Matthew 16:26
Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son.
-- 1 John 5:10
So they called them and charged them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.
But Peter and John answered them, Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge,
for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.
-- Acts 4:18-20
And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
-- Matthew 10:28
That’s all well and good on a theoretical basis.
Your boss can’t throw you in jail for just about anything, their superiors can. Mull on that. Walk a mile in their boots.
Or they can be men of whom the world is not worthy (Hebrews 11:37-38), and spend a couple of years in prison converting the guards like the Apostle Paul.
What’s stopping you from enlisting and showing everyone how it’s done?
The US government and military have been infiltrated by both pervert activists and the Mulsim Brotherhood. This is the mentality that sexually molests Americans at the airports in the name of terrorism. Gay activists hate, hate, hate God and his people.
