Posted on 04/30/2013 3:33:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Religious liberty groups have grave concerns after they learned the Pentagon is vetting its guide on religious tolerance with a group that compared Christian evangelism to rape and advocated that military personnel who proselytize should be court martialed.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is calling on the Air Force to enforce a regulation that they believe calls for the court martial of any service member caught proselytizing.
President Mikey Weinstein and others from his organization met privately with Pentagon officials on April 23. He said U.S. troops who proselytize are guilty of sedition and treason and should be punished by the hundreds if necessary to stave off what he called a tidal wave of fundamentalists.
Someone needs to be punished for this, Weinstein told Fox News. Until the Air Force or Army or Navy or Marine Corps punishes a member of the military for unconstitutional religious proselytizing and oppression, we will never have the ability to stop this horrible, horrendous, dehumanizing behavior.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, told Fox News he was stunned that the Pentagon would be taking counsel and advice from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
Why would military leadership be meeting with one of the most rabid atheists in America to discuss religious freedom in the military, Perkins said. Thats like consulting with China on how to improve human rights.
The FRC has launched a petition drive urging Defense Sec. Chuck Hagel to protect the religious freedom of troops and not to proceed with the purge of religion within the ranks called for by anti-Christian activists.
Pentagon officials met with Weinstein and his group were to discuss a policy called Air Force Culture, Air Force Standards, published on Aug. 7, 2012....

You can mow people down while shouting “Allahu Akbar!” though.
LIBERTY - E PLURIBUS UNUM - IN GOD WE TRUST
No money on installations either.
They are worried about Tsarnaevs rights but our military is threatened with sedition and treason.
This athiest had better be aware that if they open the sedition can of worms it will work both ways.
What ever happened to “For God and Country”? I find it disgusting that place like Russia are becoming more open to Christianity, there are those in control of America that are working hard to drive us into the arms of Satan!
Well it is true that Prostlitizing is sedition and treason, if the Feral Goverment is Openly Satanic.
Like it is...
I hate to say this, but, with no moral compass to guide the military it will be easier for them to turn their guns on us.
I worked at accompany with 3,000 employees. About 10 were from a fundamentalist church. Their preacher insisted that work was the place to convert people. He told them to get in our faces and push hard. They were so obnoxious that the company said if there was one more complaint they’d all be fired.
Here’s the thing, they were all practically illiterate. I actually read the Bible. They only read their pamphlets and the pamphlets were bizarrely off base.
If they had held a come-all barbeque they’d have got 50 people to show up. But their formulaic approach was offensive and made working at our jobs practically impossible. The workplace is for work and nothing else. If you want to proselytize, be clever and get them to come to you by using food or recreation or a dance or a band.
“unconstitutional religious proselytizing”
Wow, these people get stupider every day don’t they?
It’s in the 1st Amendment, libs, under “free exercise of religion”. So all religious proselytizing is by definition constitutional, and the Federal government has absolutely zero authority to prohibit it.
“Don’t Pray, Don’t Tell”
My great uncle was an Army chaplain during WWII. He was a deeply religious man who was very highly respected by the his fellow soldiers at the VFW.
I remember going to a barbecue with his VFW post when I was a teenager. He was telling a story about a battle in the Arden Forest and giving last rites to a man who’d been shot in the neck. He said that the man was hysterical and could not be calmed, but as he knelt beside him and prayed, the man became quiet.
He watched so many young men die but prayed with so many more before battles. His belief in God and his convictions taught him that as long as God is with the fighting men of our military, no army could defeat them. This was his message to his men.
The military wants to define extremism as a faith in God. They want to define terror as a belief that Jesus Christ is the son of God and is the savior of man. They want to prosecute and imprison those who believe in peace and love for all through Christ. They want to make it treasonous and seditious to speak the gospel... in a country founded by men who were so strong in their convictions and faith that they gave their lives, their fortunes, and their honor to enshrine it in our very founding documents.
The faggots and atheists are winning. They are destroying the very fabric, right down to the threads, of our nation. If our military comes undone in this way, we, as a nation, are done. Sold down the river to the highest bidder. Learn Mandarin if you can.
I would love to find out every Christian who voted for obama. Give them this article and have them explain why they voted for a person who hates our faith.
Should have been court martialed:
“United in this determination and with unshakable faith in the cause for which we fight, we will, with God’s help, go forward to our greatest victory.”
- General Dwight D. Eisenhower
The man wants a blue suit Weinstein; turn on the blue light.....
If the State decides Christians are the enemy, then for sure on that day we certainly are.
Any pictures of “Mikey Weinstein” in the process of eliminating Christianity from the American military?
And yes, the work place, the mall, everywhere is the place to tell people that Jesus saves.
That aside, there are some people who do not follow the scripture on sharing their faith...namely the guidelines laid down in Luke 10 and Matthew 10.
But the bottom line here is: This administration doesn't want Christians to share their faith. I will wage a dollar to a penny that Christians will be singled out rather than Muslims. Doubt it?
Islamic prosthlitizing will be protected as diversity, of course.
Next, all chapels on military installations will be closed and converted to Mosques.
