Don’t be alarmed that the Obama Regime has been systematically purging the US Armed Forces of Christians who take their faith seriously. No doubt this is just yet another isolated incident:
Several dozen U.S. Army active duty and reserve troops were told last week that the American Family Association, a well-respected Christian ministry, should be classified as a domestic hate group because the group advocates for traditional family values.
At the briefing, propaganda was used to associate the AFA with Fred Phelps’s harmless but infuriating Westboro Baptist Church, which gets attention by disrupting military funerals. There is no actual association between them.
A chaplain had the character to challenge the assertion that the AFA is a “hate group.” But the doctrine was passed down from on high that any group that disapproves of homosexual deviancy deserves that designation. That means soldiers are expected to regard this mainstream Christian group as the enemy.
Later in the briefing, the soldiers were reportedly told that they could face punishment for participating in organizations that are considered hate groups.
That would logically include any Bible-based Christian group.
Observes Bryan Fischer, who hosts a talk show on American Family Radio:
“If our military wasn’t headed by a commander-in-chief who is hostile to Christian faith, these allegations would be laughed off every military base in the world.”
Given enough time, Obama et al. will completely purge the military of sincere Christians. This will take them a long way toward creating a new military reflecting their own values. It will be less useful on foreign battlefields, but they won’t have to worry about principled refusal to follow orders on American soil that no Christian would obey.
