Hey guys! It’s been a long time since I’ve done a long post on here. I haven’t had anything truly rant worthy lately. I found the mentioned article through a friend of mine and truly I have never been so pissed off and so scared at the same time. Check out the link and my thoughts below and please, let me know what you think. Until next time, stay shiny and LOVE EVERYBODY!
I don’t want to live here anymore.
Everyone who knows me as a Christian also knows that I will force my faith on anyone. Everyone is entitled to believe what they want and I have vowed not to judge them for it. I believe in the freedom of religion and freedom of faith. But completely BANNING Christians from talking about their faith even between friends or even taking away chaplains who could help those Christians in their time of need is not only ridiculous, it is cruel. It is one thing to say they can’t preach to an entire division because some may not believe. But its an entirely other thing to completely forbid Christian related conversation between soldiers in private.
If this is how they are treating their Christian soldiers; the ones who put their lives on the line for us every day, what do you think they’re going to do to the rest of us Christians once (or if) this catches on outside of the military?
Mikey Weinstien is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Freedom my ass if he says this: “those 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”
The article goes on to say that, “This regulation would severely limit expressions of faith in the military, even on a one-to-one basis between close friends. It could also effectively abolish the position of chaplain in the military, as it would not allow chaplains (or any service members, for that matter), to say anything about their faith that others say led them to think they were being encouraged to make faith part of their life.”
