Breaking: Pentagon Confirms May Court Martial Soldiers Who Share Christian Faith
Breitbart ^ | 5/1/13

Posted on 05/01/2013 9:27:40 AM PDT by Nachum

The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”.

The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.

(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians--including chaplains--sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of “spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are “enemies of the Constitution.”)

Being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.

Time for all Christians to get out of the military. I am glad I am done with it. I have been retired well over 20 years now, before the commie Klinton came into office. Thank God that my time was done and I am free now from the imperial federal government. I love my country. I hate my government who imposes its own rules on me as a free, private citizen. My beliefs are mine. NOT the stinking Obamanites. God made me free. Not man. I could give a care less what the commies in Sodom on the Potomac say. I will stand up for Jesus Christ. Let the commies do as they may. In the end, I win with Jesus Christ. The commies get the Lake of Fire.

Easy. The GOP helps the Dems court martial them first. Because I n do not see the GOP complaining, much less stopping this insanity.

Look at the military, and say hello to the new occupier force. The military ranks are being purged of the non-beleivers, and the replacements are not loyal to anyone but those who hand out the money. It’s just a coup in the making.

So. since the Pentagon was SUCCESSFULLY BOMBED by
al Qaeda in the 911 Atrocities, and SUCCESSFULLY
intercalated and took it over, all OTHER religions
are now only worthy of death panels and Court Martial.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
"
President Ronald Reagan

That’s one of the end goals of the left -

to empower the State to persecute Christians.

This has been the case for a while. It’s also not limited to Christians. 99% of the time it would be a simple verbal or written counseling anyway, and that’s if anyone actually complained about it.

I really think this is being blown way out of proportion by Breitbart.

Exactly! Just what is the GOP doing?? Are they anywhere to be found? What’s the point of electing them and having a Majority in the House?

Just when will the GOP step up to these godless Communist bullies?

I have to agree, otherwise there will be no chaplains. It’s probably in response to that major that shot those people and refused to shave.

"...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”.

Meaning "Allah Akbar" is OK, "Jesus Saves" can get you jailed.

If a person is pestering others, then it could prevent harmony within the group. If a guy has merely mentioned that he’s a Christian and proud of it, or has been approached with sincere questions, then I see no problem at all.

I am not comfortable with this administration and it’s lackeys overseeing U. S. policy.

If Christians leave the military, or decline to enlist, they will institute the involuntary draft instead.
Which is probably the real goal.
They don't want an elite army that can be effective abroad.
They want an unmotivated army that can be deployed here at home.
The fewer Christians and the more Atheists and Muslims the better to further the jackboot agenda.

I spent 22 years starting in the Marine Corps and then retiring from the AF. I experienced a couple of cases of proselytization where the individuals did not have enough sense to not press it in the work place or did not know enough to back off when asked. Most of what I saw was well within bounds and offended nobody.

This crap is the result of civilian DoD idiots as well as the overwhelming majority of general officers who are political appointees as well. There are very few real leaders in the higher ranks and way too many who are incompetent at everything other than political ass-kissing. Make no mistake, most of the career line troops, their officers and NCOs know this and know that unconstitutional and illegal orders from these pampered morons should be challenged. Expect suits and challenges to this to be forthcoming.

First, bring the homosexuals in. Then force the Christians out.

This is very similar to NAZI Germany when Jews were slowly forced out of various occupations. The goal is clear, force Christians out.

You know the 100s of ways this will be enforced, including no posting of notices on bulletin boards of Bible study groups, no religious activities permitted anywhere on base or aboard ships outside of designated areas (e.g., forbidden in barracks, base housing, berthing compartments), no announcements of inspirational speakers or musical groups coming to town, shutting down of base chapels, no use of the Internet or social media by service members, DoD civilians, or contractors to promote their faith, etc.
