U.S. Marine Court Martialed For Refusing To Remove Biblical Verse
The war on religion continues, from attempting to take Christ out of Christmas, to banning the word “God” from our National Anthem, secular progressives have systemically attempted to rewrite history, and in so doing deny the fact that America was and “is” founded on “Judeo-Christian” principles set forth by our Founders and thus written within our “founding documents” most notably within our Constitution.
However that hasn’t stopped the loony left from their mission to do whatever they can to propagate an anti-religious (except for Muslims) secular ideology.
The latest dust-up happened recently at Camp Lejeune when a young Marine refused to remove a Bible verse on her computer desktop. The screen read “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”
The military determined that the line “could easily be seen as contrary to good order and discipline.”
Sterling, the Marine, was convicted at a court-martial for refusing to obey the orders to remove the verse.
This refusal has now left her unemployed, a process that will be extraordinarily difficult given her charge of bad conduct and dishonorable discharge.
No doubt disobeying a “lawful order” is a serious infraction however the military had other options available to remedy the situation, rather than such a harsh and punitive action as a “dishonorable discharge.”
Michael Berry, an attorney for the Liberty Institute said; “If the government can order a Marine not to display a Bible verse, they could try to order her not to get a religious tattoo, or go to church on Sunday.”
