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.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
How does this work with chaplains?
I spent 20 years in the Air Force and not once experienced proselytization.

I say, “Come and get me Copper! Arrest me. Try me. Convict me!”
This is one time I am glad my mom is not here to witness this. Also to tell me “I told you so” when I said there was no way the US Government would persecute Christianity.
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.
They are put on KP
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.
"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?
How long before we have the wear big letter C’s on our clothes?
Is it time yet?
He's now going after the First Amendment. How many more?
