Report: U.S. Military ‘Hostile’ To Christians Under Obama… Morale Devestated

nochristiansSoon there may only be atheists in the foxholes. Christians are leaving the U.S. military or are discouraged from joining in the first place because of a “hostile work environment” that doesn’t let them express their beliefs openly, religious freedom advocates say.

Michael Berry, senior counsel at the Liberty Institute, a Texas-based legal organization dedicated to defending religious liberty in America, said recent high-profile cases of military chaplains facing punishment for private counseling sessions that reflected the teachings of their religion could cause devout Americans who are qualified for military service to think twice about joining the military.

In December, a chaplain for a Ranger training battalion received an administrative letter of concern after a soldier complained that he advocated Christianity and used the Bible during a mandatory unit suicide-prevention training session.

The Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers said the chaplain “used his official position to force his personal religious beliefs on a captive military audience” in an article the group posted on its website.

    Skunk Obama has complete confidence in handing over the reins to homosexuals and Kerry calling on the name of Allah.

    The way we’re going, when the atheists and homosexuals are sharing the foxholes, the Christians will be hiding in their closets reading their Bibles by the light of chemical glow sticks. Some how, that does seem grossly incongruous with the concept of “The land of the brave and the home of the free”.

    The Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers has a holiday once a year and it is called April Fool’s Day. The reason they do not like the Bible is because it will show them there is a one true God and each one of them will stand before Him some day and bow to Him whether they want to or not. Hopefully some of them will come to the knowledge of the Truth and see before it is too late.. The devil is on their side and he enjoys their company. The devil comes to kill and destroy. Wake up.
