Living Your Faith is now Banned in the Military

I’ll let the articles speak for themselves, but also want to point out that going forth and spreading the Word is part of living your life as a Christian, Jesus tells us to do so.  Does that mean that Christianity has been outlawed in the military?

This is not new from this Administration (who will stand with the) remember this one from December 2011?

And in the  President’s own words:

The Audacity of Hope [pg. 261]: “Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” (emphasis added).

This new step in the wake of the Boston Marathon Bombing is amazing.  Have the political winds shifted? Are they about to?

 

FRC has a petition to stop this which you can sign here.

Please pray for our country, and our leaders.  Let’s pray that God will grant wisdom and discernment upon all of those in power.  I think that’s the only thing we can do.
