The Obama administration and the Pentagon are seemingly he’ll bent on preventing our Armed Forces from expressing their Christian faith.
A response from the White House on an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would protect the expression of religion among our military essentially said it would serve as a distraction, harm morale, and impede missions. There was also a threat to veto such measures.
Let me speak from experience for a moment. When I was in combat, one thing that pulled me through was my faith. I honestly believe that prayers helped my squad in many ways. My squad was a mix of religions, but we prayed together all the time.
Some in the Pentagon would see such expressions as punishable, up to a court martial. We never forced anyone to participate. All willingly came and prayed with us.
So I present a question to all of you: doesn’t our military deserve the same rights they put their lives on the line to defend?
This is just one more piece of a growing war on Christians coming from this administration. It needs to stop and we must speak up to preserve our rights and the rights of our military members.
