The Pentagon recently released a statement to clarify their announced prohibition against “proselytization”: “Service members can share their faith (evangelize), but must not force unwanted, intrusive attempts to convert others of any faith or no faith to one’s beliefs (proselytization)”.
In war, Field Marshall Helmuth Carl Bernard Graf von Moltke is given credit for the oft quoted; “No plan survives contact with the enemy”. In politics it’s the “law of unintended consequences” that frequently mocks the best intentions of lawmakers. So when it comes to politics and war, the manipulation of the details, or in this case words, will eventually make the Pentagon’s clarification irrelevant.
Words, actually two specifically, “unwanted” and “intrusive”, will place the weight of this law squarely on the backs of Chaplains and the legal counsel that will have to defend them, the first time a Muslim family’s son returns from boot camp with his new found faith in Jesus. Not that Islam has any such fairness doctrine, or separation of church and state amendment, no, make no mistake, this is a law aimed at Christianity. And it must be so if you’re goal is to rewrite history, our history.
Woodrow Wilson, former commander-in-chief, said this: “America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness which are derived from the revelations of the Holy Scripture.” – 1911
Calvin Coolidge, former commander-in-chief, said this about our founding fathers: “They were intent upon establishing a Christian commonwealth in accordance with the principle of self- government. They were an inspired body of men. It has been said that God sifted the nations that He might send choice grain into the wilderness… Who can fail to see it in the hand of destiny? Who can doubt that it has been guided by a Divine Providence.” – 1923
Barak Obama, current commander-in-chief, June 28, 2006 said this: ”Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation – at least, not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
In other words, we are a people who no longer stand for something, will fall for anything, and will have to change everything back to the way it should be when this devilish regime finally collapses under the weight of it’s own details.
