A friend asked me a very serious question yesterday. She asked what is happening to our country? I said that I truly do not know. I also told her that, more importantly,, I wish I had a solution. But I don’t.
The America that I grew up in is no longer. We have far leftist leadership that is trying very hard to take away our right to own and carry weapons as guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
That same leadership is trying to change the definition of marriage which, in my opinion, would send us the way of ancient Rome and Greece.
And that same leadership is trying to tax out of existence all Americans who work and take care of themselves and their families—all so that the 40 percent of Americans who have been lured by the far left (and their “useful idiots”) into the entitlement mentality don’t have to work.
And all this is just the beginning. I have written previously of the long list of freedoms being taken away from Americans by the left. (On the search bar type in the word “freedoms”.)
Now the left, led by President Obama and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel (a RINO and puppet for the President) are attacking the religious freedom of American soldiers who are serving their country.
The following are excerpts from an article written by Ken Klukowski (Breitbart.com, May 1, 2013).
“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…’
“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.
“…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’…
“…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 (mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis)–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.”
Clearly, Obama, Hagel, and Weinstein do not understand the Constitution or choose to besmirch it for their own ends. The Constitution does not speak of “separation of church and state” as they would have us believe. It states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF…”. These far left “leaders” are trying to prevent the free exercise of the Christian religion. (And, by the way, does the military prevent Muslim soldiers from praying in an open manner five times each day?)
To alleviate the “concern” that has arisen due to this new information from Breitbart News, on May 1, 2013 the far left atheist website Patheos.com (whose tagline is “the friendly atheist”) posted this article entitled “No…Mikey Weinstein was not hired by the Pentagon”. The article is excerpted here:
“Here’s what Mikey (Weinstein) said about the proselytizing in a recent Huffington Post piece:
“Neither MRFF nor any other genuine religious freedom organization of any repute has ever championed — and never would champion — that evangelical Christians, as a whole, should be ousted from the government or the military. We demand only that people of all faiths (or no faith) obey their solemnly sworn oath to the Constitution and follow the military’s regulations regarding religion.”
Of course, this is what the left does. Vague and misleading quotes. Weinstein is an atheist who once was Jewish. He gave up faith in God for faith in atheism which is but another religion, albeit one which worships not worshiping. Taking our freedoms slowing and with deceit. Unfortunately it is working because people aren’t paying attention!
It is in the interest of the far left to rid America of Christianity and religion in general.. The far left accepts no religion other than that of “progressivism”. The far left sees ITSELF as God and “progressivism as the only entity that should be worshipped. If we experience a real spiritual connection with God their power is diluted.
President Obama has been seen by many as the messiah. To paraphrase Lloyd Bentsen…I believe that I know Jesus—and Mr. Obama, you are no Jesus.
