Without a doubt Christians are under siege around the world, the continued atrocities by radical Islamic fundamentalists have been well documented, the rapes, beheadings, and unimaginable carnage continues unabated.

However the discrimination and disrespect isn’t only confined to those barbarians within the Middle East, it also continues right here at home, and also unabated.

According to recent reports, the Pentagon has released a statement that confirms that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith. The statement follows a meeting between Pentagon appointees and Mikey Weinstein, head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, in a collaborative effort to develop court-martial procedures that would prevent Christians in the military from expressing their faith.

The statement reads: “Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense…Court Martial's and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis.”

“Incredibly” this Administration just made it a crime, punishable by imprisonment, for those in uniform fighting for our country to share their faith.

“Faith” is the very essence of how our Founders envisioned America, and within those founding documents are the principles set forth within our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.

‘Religion is as necessary to reason as reason is to religion. The one cannot exist without the other. A reasoning being would lose his reason, in attempting to account for the great phenomena of nature, had he not a Supreme Being to refer to; and well has it been said, that if there had been no God, mankind would have been obliged to imagine one.”
George Washington.
