Cross Banned, Homosexual Flag Flies High at US Military Base

The most profound threats to America are not to be found overseas, as we can see from a couple of stories from Afghanistan.

This cross, which temporarily appeared on the front of Camp Marmal Chapel, was banned:


But no one in the Hopey Changey jobs program/social engineering project that used to be the US Armed Forces would dare suggest removing this obscenity:


May God forgive us for what we are allowing left-wing radicals to do to our country.

On a tip from Byron. Hat tip: Gateway Pundit.

    Jeez, didn’t you guys get the memo? According to the unqualified traitor in the White House, Jesus is bad, while moral depravity is good. Man, you guys need to wake up earlier.

    Now lao finally might consider leaving his mommy’s basement and go join the military…where he can bugger other fruits to his hearts content.

    The rejuvenation could be ugly. No mercy, no quarter.

    Not exactly. May God forgive us for what we’ll do to the left-wing radicals when they push the envelope just a little too far.

    This along with Obama Care and bailouts, is all part of the plan to accelerate this nations destruction. Lets make sure we do all we can to vote the usurper out of office this Nov. Or its going to be lock and load for sure.

    Isn’t there a military code for flying another flag on a US base?

  7. TheRonPaulSteve says:

    They should only fly the American flag, are they more proud to be American or gay?

    Is that the head qtrs for the Diddling 69th?

    If they are trying not to offend Muslims by removing the Cross, I would think flying a Gay Pride flag would offend Muslims even more, as the following shows:

    Qur’an (7:81) – “Will ye commit abomination such as no creature ever did before you?” This verse is part of the previous text and it establishes that homosexuality as different from (and much worse than) adultery or other sexual sin. According to the Arabic grammar, homosexuality is called the worst sin, while references elsewhere describe other forms of non-marital sex as being “among great sins.”

  10. I emailed my active duty Navy Seal buddy and asked him if he belived this:

    It’s not photoshopped. It was a lone Marine who posted the flag for his wife’s facebook page about homophobia. There is no ban on the Christian Cross. I’ve never seen a cross that big on a tent. Atheism is no more a religion than bald is a color of hair. Z.

    He’s very proud of anal sex. Proud of it, damn it!

    I do wonder how the New-model Army will actually fight – what with “pregnant soldiers” and so forth. Some gays can fight, but will those be the ones attracted to the Army?

  13. Robert Peahl says:

    The link in the article states clearly the circumstances dealing with the banning of the Cross. It is on a German base in N. Afghanistan that has an American contingent.
    The Cross was removed because it is against military regulations for a chapel to display any “permanent” religious symbols. So in efect, yes there is a ban on the Cross. Maybe that’s why you never saw a Cross that big on a tent.
    I appreciate all that the SEALs and other special forces do, but unless the person you emailed was stationed at that base, it’s not really an issue whether he thinks it’s real or not.

    There is no ban on the cross.

    The cross was likely removed because the Christian services were over. Next week or whenever the next services are to occur it will likely be back up briefly then taken back down after the services are over. At the same time, though, because of the “sensitivity” of moslems to anything Christian added to the fuss over terrorists masquerading as civilians and using civilians as human shields plus the recent regrettable incident where one of ours started acting briefly like all of theirs do all the time, it is possible the cross is temporarily not displayed so that the terrorists won’t know which tent to hit to kill a bunch of Christians all at once.

    Actually, unless he finds a nice young (he seems to prefer them pre-pubescent) victim, word is he likes to be the one getting buggered.

  16. AC says:

    Is the same tent typically used for other religious services, such as for enlisted Jews? I can understand if logistical concerns require the sharing of religious facilities with each faith on its day of worship.

  17. Dr. 9 says:

    For the last 3 1/2 years, the Marxist-in-Chief has filled the most sensitive and powerful positions in the govt. with his radical, America-hating Obamunist followers. Does anyone really believe by simply electing a new president that they’ll all disappear?

  18. beforethestorm says:

    What some of you may not get if you’ve never been in the military is that the military isn’t ideologically a live and let live organization. You are supposed to be onboard and in tune with the mindset the military wants you to have. There will be sensitivity classes. There will be punishments for people who say things not in line with this new policy. There will be good people backed into a corner and literally compelled to choose between their conscience and their career. The military will be rabid about this like they were rabid about race when I was in. I remember a young man who became angry at another military man and yelled at him “you b@stard.” The problem was, this young man had a regional accent which caused him to say the word “you” in a way that sounded like the word “jew”. I knew this guy for years and noticed it many times. He was thrown out of the military with a dishonorable discharge. More of the same. ATM I’m very glad I’m out.

    Turkey Lurker, Just what does Atheism have to do with this story what so ever? From what I read absolutely NOTHING. So it just seems like it was a inappropriate chance for you to insult Atheists, & Atheist servicemen.

    I served in the US Navy from 1995 to 2006.
    I was an Atheist the majority of the time I served until I embraced Buddhism. I can recall many times when I was harassed & discriminated against because of my being an Atheist. The only time I ever revealed I did not believe in God was when I was asked why I did not attend Church, so no I did not try to convert others unlike the many times I was cornered by someone wasting my time trying to convert me.

    I was discharged as a Chief due to an IED blast (by an Islamist who killed 2 of my friends and injured me due to THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS)

    When you can honestly show where Atheists killed in the name of Atheism then perhaps you would have a reasonable complaint but we all know you cannot do that.

  22. “May God forgive us….” Sadly, I’m beginning to suspect that He will not. The next president will either be someone who is a black-liberation-theologist/Marxist or someone who does not believe in the Nicene Creed of “mainstream” Christianity. That a not a choice I think He designed for us as a reward.

    Military regs prohibit the “permanent” display of any religious symbols at it’s chapels. That is why I said “in effect” the Cross is banned. So is a permanent Star of David or a permanent Crescent Moon.
    According to the link provided by Mr. Blount the Cross had been on the tent for several months. The Chaplains were asked to remove it due to the regulation.
    It would certainly not pose a problem, from a regulations point of view, to place the religious symbol of each religion on the tent for the day of worship. As you point out, it may present an appealing target to the enemy.
    Considering Muslim doctrine regarding homosexuality, it is even more dangerous to fly a gay pride flag, which is certainly visible for a greater distance than any symbol on a tent.

    As Bob Roberts mentioned above, “At the same time, though, because of the “sensitivity” of Muslims to anything…”

    He could have stopped writing at this point. It’s a complete thought.
