Share Your Faith to Become an ‘Enemy of the Constitution?’

Only days after Barack Obama coined the phrase ‘self-radicalized’ along comes anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation with a bone jarring proposition to make criminals and worse out of any military servicemen who share their faith in Christ with others in their ranks.

Adding a new category to the ever burgeoning list of PC generated phobias, now we may add the term, ‘fundamentalist-phobia’ to help America become a nation of properly parsing phenoms who fantasize that America is under attack by mere words and phrases.

With Korea threatening to nuke us, Iran threatening to nuke everyone, and anti-American sentiment on the rise everywhere else, it seems good to know we have finally identified the real enemy – the fundamentalist Christians who share their faith. If we hurry to criminalize, prosecute and put them all in jail the nation has a fighting chance. No, I am not trying to get a job as a staff writer for Mad Magazine and no humor is intended here. This is America today!

In a Huffington Post article Weinstein said, “Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”

Atheist activism coupled with liberalism is being boosted and spurred by the policies of the White House these days, but the use of the word ‘weaponized’ has connotations of extremism written all over it.

What a twist. The moral guides of the scripture such as the clear teaching that homosexuality is sinful and perverted are now considered by secular liberals to be metaphorical or anachronistic at best, but the one reference to Christians being armed which is - metaphorical (Eph 6: 13-19) is now taken as literal. The deep confusion Godlessness creates has never been more apparent.

Weinstein’s radicalism has been noted and condemned by many people and organizations and Citizen Link’s Judicial Analyst Bruce Hausknecht has said that the Congress should reject the extremism in these views. Family Research Council has started a petition drive to ask Sec. Hagel to refuse to engage Weinstein in military policy making.

Weinstein said “This is a national security threat. What is happening…is spiritual rape and what the Pentagon needs to understand is that it is sedition and treason. It should be punished.” Speaking generally Feinstein used words like rape, sedition and treason but on a more personal level he referred to Franklin Graham, son of Evangelist Billy Graham in even lower terms. He said Graham, “Is a fundamentalist – a total enemy of the Constitution – an absolutely incredible Islamophobe.”

Obama’s handpicked advisor to Chuck Hagel seems to be a self-radicalized person rather than a good choice to be advising anyone at any level of government. Why are we no longer surprised by Obama appointees?

Be it the Pentagon, Hagel or Weinstein, two things will become apparent to them all in short notice.

Firstly, if Weinstein can successfully push the Pentagon to adopt his obvious onslaught to the constitutional freedom of religion in the military, untold thousands will not be seeking to serve in the future.

Secondly, the new rules will be tested in several ways on a legal basis also those who have heard the great commission and take it seriously will be forced to obey it first. Long before there was a Commander in Chief or a Pentagon believers were given this command, it is in effect to this day, to wit:

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Mt 28: 19, 20)

In the over 200 year long tradition of faith in the military there have been many stories of brave soldiers, sailors and airmen who depended on their faith in desperately dangerous moments, and also share that faith with others in the most critical moments of their lives. Will one angry atheist be allowed to dismiss and discontinue all of this on a liberally based and perhaps demonically inspired whim? It must not happen.

We can only speculate what the military would look like when combatants are found in extreme danger, rather than sharing their faith and praying, will they hold hands, cuddle and maybe even kiss each other? Don’t worry I’m not a self-radicalized person because I think this sounds as crazy as you do.

The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has already begun an investigation into the statements issued by the DoD to clarify the meanings of their original statements.
