Breaking: Pentagon Confirms May Court Martial Soldiers Who Share Christian Faith -- Breitbart

The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”.

The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.

(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians--including chaplains--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.”)

My Comment: This is a story that no one in the main stream media wants to touch. As to what is my take .... I am stunned that on this issue the Pentagon is taking counsel and advice from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation .... but I guess this is the state of American politics and the U.S. military today. I guess it is also only a question time before military chaplains will become silenced under these Pentagon rules.

What countries arrest citizens for sharing their faith? Oh yes, that would be communist countries. Could it be that Obama is a communist after all.
