Christian Court Marshalls?
America is sliding further toward the abyss. We've got Muslim terrorists in our streets, and now the Pentagon is talking about court martials for Christians who speak about their faith.
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 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.”) A court martial conviction means that a soldier has committed a
crime under federal military law. Punishment can include imprisonment and
being dishonorably discharged from the military. So President Barack
Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the
military will make it a crime--possibly resulting in imprisonment--for those in
uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains—military officers
who are ordained clergymen of their faith whose duty since the founding of the
U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and minister to
the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or
comfort. This regulation would severely limit expressions of faith in the
military, even on a one-to-one basis between close friends. It could also
effectively abolish the position of chaplain in the military, as it would not
allow chaplains to say anything about their faith that others say led them to
think they were being encouraged to make faith part of their life. It’s
difficult to imagine how a member of the clergy could give spiritual counseling
without saying anything that might be perceived in that fashion.
These regulations certainly didn't apply to Nidal Hassan, the Muslim who ran around preaching his Muslim faith before he ended up murdering some of his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood.
