Politically correcting our military

The United States military is second to none, but there are two looming threats to that superiority. first there is defense cuts, which could leave our military impotent, then there is the threat of P. C. Here are some very bad signs

Military orders crosses removed from forward operating base after atheists complain

Via Fox News:

The U.S. military reportedly ordered soldiers to remove a cross and a steeple from atop a chapel and to board up cross-shaped windows at a remote American forward operating base in Afghanistan.

The removal of Christian symbols from the chapel at Forward Operating Base Orgun-E came after a solider complained — leading American Atheists president David Silverman to send a letter to the Pentagon.

“Soldiers with minority religious beliefs and atheists often feel like second-class citizens when Christianity is seemingly officially endorsed by their own base,” Silverman told Fox News. “We are very happy the Pentagon and the Army decided to do the right thing.”

Silverman said a Christian chapel on an Army base in Afghanistan could have put American troops in danger.

“It enflames this Muslim versus Christian mentality,” he said. “This is not a Muslim versus Christian war — but if the Army base has a large chapel on it that has been converted to Christian-only, it sends a message that could be interpreted as hostile to Islam.

The Army released a statement to NBC acknowledging board had also been placed over the cross-shaped windows while the base ordered new doors.

Here we go, better not risk offending an Atheist or an Islamist. I wonder what George Patton would have to say about this inanity. But there is more. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta seems to be obsessed with a gender neutral military

(CNSNews.com) – Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday that whether they are male or female “everyone is entitled to a chance” to become a combat soldier in a military that will now adopt “gender neutral” standards.

“If members of our military can meet the qualifications for a job–and let me be clear, we’re not talking about reducing the qualifications for a job–if they can meet the qualifications for the job then they should have the right to serve,” Panetta said at a Pentagon press conference.

The Defense Department announced today that it would rescind its 1994 policy restricting women from serving in combat-focused positions such as infantry units, potentially opening up 230,000 positions to female service members.

Sure, IF the standards are not lowered or altered fine. Problem is, I do not trust a Liberal like Panetta, or a Leftist like his boss, to NOT change he standards. Then there is always the threat of our government caving in to UN pressure and surrendering part or all of our right to protect ourselves

The UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has launched an investigation into drone strikes and will review resultant civilian casualties to determine whether the attacks constitute a war crime.

Ben Emmerson, a UN special rapporteur on human rights and counter-terrorism, formally launched the inquiry on Thursday, in response to requests from Russia, China and Pakistan.

A statement released by the UN Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights states that the inquiry will provide a “critical examination of the factual evidence concerning civilian casualties”. […]

At a press conference on Thursday in London, Emmerson said that the British government had already agreed to co-operate with the investigation and that he was “optimistic” that the US would do the same.

He also requested the US to release “before and after” videos of the drone strikes and internal reports of those killed, including civilians.

Of course our only statement to the UN should be short, very short. I am think two words long, care to guess which two words? Here is a hint the first words starts with a big fat “F”. Again, let this serve as a reminder that Leftists are a threat to everything that makes America free and strong. You might be feeling like you were kicked in the groin ever since election day. Well shake it off. Politics are cyclical, and do not even think of packing it is, we have too much to lose, including our opportunity to retake and rebuild our republic that the Founders gave us.

 

 

Now isn’t that peculiar?

Matt offers up the perfect illustration of the folly of radical Atheists

During a Halloween Parade, Atheists dressed as parodies of religious figures.  One was a zombie Pope.  Another, who is the sad subject of this story, dressed as zombie Mohammed.  That prompted a quick and violent reaction from a local resident, who is a Muslim.  For the rest of the story, check this out, via Weasel Zippers…

Via Opposing Views:

The Pennsylvania State Director of American Atheists, Inc., Mr. Ernest Perce V., was assaulted by a Muslim while participating in a Halloween parade. Along with a Zombie Pope, Ernest was costumed as Zombie Muhammad. The assault was caught on video, the Muslim man admitted to his crime and charges were filed in what should have been an open-and-shut case. That’s not what happened, though.

The defendant is an immigrant and claims he did not know his actions were illegal, or that it was legal in this country to represent Muhammad in any form. To add insult to injury, he also testified that his 9 year old son was present, and the man said he felt he needed to show his young son that he was willing to fight for his Prophet.

The case went to trial, and as circumstances would dictate, Judge Mark Martin is also a Muslim. What transpired next was surreal. The Judge not only ruled in favor of the defendant, but called Mr. Perce a name and told him that if he were in a Muslim country, he’d be put to death. Judge Martin’s comments included,

“Having had the benefit of having spent over 2 and a half years in predominantly Muslim countries I think I know a little bit about the faith of Islam. In fact I have a copy of the Koran here and I challenge you sir to show me where it says in the Koran that Mohammad arose and walked among the dead. I think you misinterpreted things. Before you start mocking someone else’s religion you may want to find out a little bit more about it it makes you look like a dufus and Mr. (Defendant) is correct. In many Arabic speaking countries something like this is definitely against the law there. In their society in fact it can be punishable by death and it frequently is in their society.”

Aha, now, Matt does an absolutely tremendous job of explaining why this story is so, to use his words, instructive!

First off, if the attacker was a Christian, and the judge was also Christian, would he have gotten off free?  I don’t think so, because Christians believe in law and order, and generally eschew violence.  And, come to think of it, it might have been at least a blurb on the national news, as it makes Chrsitians look bad.  However, since the attacker is a Christian, there is going to be a lot of silence on this story.

Secondly, Atheists, Feminazis, homosexuals, Muslims, and a host of other groups attack Christianity on a regular basis.  They proudly and loudly do so, and are rather persistent at it.  However, those same groups seem to shy away from attacking Muslims.  Of course, the common answer is simple.  A Christian, when attacked, is instructed by scripture to turn the other cheek, and pray for their enemies.  Muslims, on the other hand, are instructed to kill everyone who opposes them.  And, the judge is correct, Mr. Perce would likely be killed for his prank in a Muslim country.   The answer then?  Christians are a soft target, they aren’t likely to fight back.  Islam is a rather violent religion, and their Koran demands the death of infidels.

Mr. Perce was assaulted by one Muslim.  What if there had been twenty?  What if there had been one hundred?  And, what if there were a Muslim judge to declare them all innocent for his eventual murder?  This is something that our Atheist friends might want to consider as more Muslims enter this country, and clearly don’t “get” the religious freedom, or the freedom of speech, that our Constitution protects.

In the end, I cannot take the atheists, feminazis, gays, and other critics of Christianity, at all seriously.  They claim that Christianity is oppressive, yet they mostly ignore that Muslims kill apostates or infidels, commit honor killings of female family members, and hang homosexuals. But, we don’t see them being protested.  We don’t see demonstrations outside of Mosques.  Nothing.  If they were serious about their issues, they would take on the people that would kill them, rather than the ones that would pray for them.  They are cowards and hypocrites, and are not worthy of the tiniest bit of credibility.

BRAVO!!!
