TYRANNY ALERT! Pentagon Confirms May Court Martial Soldiers Who Share Christian Faith .. by Ken Klukowski, (Breitbart)









Please share with your groups for immediate action. Thanks.


Sign the petition and then contact your congressmen who work for “We the People” and demand they start impeachment proceedings for our President and his administration for their treasonous  acts against “We the People” and their failure to protect, defend, and uphold the law of our land—our U.S. Constitution as they fundamentally transform America  and intentionally strip us of our God given rights to Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness! If we choose to remain silent and do nothing, then we deserve to reap everything they have planned for us!

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.”)

Being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.

So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the military will make it a crime–possibly resulting in imprisonment–for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains—military officers who are ordained clergymen of their faith (mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis)–whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.

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. It’s difficult to imagine how a member of the clergy could give spiritual counseling without saying anything that might be perceived in that fashion.

In response to the Pentagon’s plans, retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, who is now executive vice president of the Family Research Council (FRC), said on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning:

It’s a matter of what do they mean by “proselytizing.” …I think they’ve got their defintions a little confused. If you’re talking about coercion that’s one thing, but if you’re talking about the free exercise of our faith as individual soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, especially for the chaplains, they I think the worst thing we can do is stop the ability for a soldier to be able to exercise his faith.”

FRC has launched a petition here which has already collected over 30,000 signatures, calling on Secretary Hagel is stop working with Weinstein and his anti-Christian organization to develop military policy regarding religious faith.


The FRC petition has now exceeded more than 40,000 signatures at the time of this update.

    This is what happens when people tire of your deluded faux persecution complex and the obvious lust to rule the world in the name of your false god. This is a over hyped hogwash from brietbart rag.com. Get a life go enjoy it and tell your ego it need not compete for supremacy cause I do belive your false god hates competition.

    The Heavens are smiling upon the good work of Mikey Weinstein. His organization has been a tremendous advocate in favor of religious freedom in the military. Klukowski’s naive reaction to this policy shows how poorly informed he is of the antics of bad faith religious proselytism in the military.
