The Military Fall In Line Behind Obama

If you've read my latest book, called No Higher Power, Obama's War on Religious Freedom, you know that Obama's plan to "fundamentally transform" America includes a scheme to make us a totally secular nation and to forbid any public expression of religion. Unfortunately, the military is getting the message that it must be in harmony with the secularist bias of the commander-in-chief. An outfit called the Military Religious Freedom Foundation showed up at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina to complain about a nativity display set up before Christmas by a group of volunteers in the military chapel. The Air Force took the nativity scene down within 2 hours and 15 minutes of being contacted.

Extraordinarily fast action also resulted when the U.S. Navy announced it would remove two nativity displays from dining halls at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base because 18 servicemembers sent an email to alert the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. The commanding officer said "no one's ever complained to me about this before. We've been doing it for 19 years." Nevertheless, he promptly removed the nativity displays and moved them to the chapel.

In another case, two Baptist chaplains were forced out of a Veterans chaplain training program after they refused orders to stop praying in the name of Jesus and quoting the Bible. The one-year training program is required in order to work as a VA hospital chaplain. The Baptist chaplains were ridiculed and harassed, which led one of the chaplains to leave the program and the other being ejected. They are now suing. The lawsuit accuses the San Diego trainer of instructing chaplains that they may not pray in the name of Jesus or quote from the Bible. It tells you all you need to know about this trainer's bias when the lawsuit reports that she told the class she believes God could be either a man or a woman.
