Religious liberty is under attack in the military!
Religious liberty is under attack in America. According to the anti-religious left, a Christian trying to live out his or her faith in the public square is a grave threat to our society. Never mind that Christians living out their faith aren’t hurting anyone, but merely exercising their God-given right, which is protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
The mainstream media and the progressive left apparently no longer believe in this right, and are attacking religious liberty on every front. Newspapers only ever discuss “religious liberty” with square quotes, as if it were some nefarious term. States are punishing private individuals who decline to participate in same-sex wedding ceremonies on religious grounds. As we have reported before: bakers, florists, photographers, and farm owners are all being coerced by the state to violate their religion! The federal government has even tried to force nuns to provide contraception against their will.
But the latest attack by progressives on religious people might take the cake. According to the “Military Religious Freedom Foundation” (which is actually a misnamed anti-Christian, atheist group), members of the military should not be allowed to pray in public.
You read that right. Sign here to let them know that we will not allow our military service members to be bullied into hiding their faith!
Here’s what happened. A faith-based leadership conference recently took place at an Air Force base in Ohio. The conference was supported by the base’s Chaplain Office, and it represented over 90 denominations. Base members were invited to attend, though no one was forced to. Apparently, at this conference, some military members—wait for it—prayed in public.
And so, the anti-religious freedom group pounced. The Foundation called for immediate “corrective action” and “punish[ment]” for the organizers of this event. According to the Foundation, it showed “favoritism of one faith over another” and will be a danger to “good order moral, discipline, unit cohesion, health and safety and military readiness.”
What is it again that will supposedly cause all these serious problems? A leadership conference hosted by Christians at which some Christians prayed. Sign this petition if you agree that is ridiculous.
Obviously Christians exercising their right to pray and learn from other Christians in the military is not a threat to good order and obviously should not warrant punishment. Just the opposite. We need to stand up and say that we will not allow the religious freedom of the men and women who serve us in the military to be attacked.
An affront to religious liberty anywhere is a threat to all of us. Please sign the petition to let the progressive left know that we will not give up our freedom without a fight.
