In a statement put into the record at a Jan. 29, 2014 hearing of the House Armed Services Committees Subcommittee on Military Personnel, retired Lt. Gen. William Gerry Boykin, said religious liberty is a core value of our nation, and that religious beliefs sustain troops who face harm or death in the course of performing their duties.
In sum, religious freedom and expression is not something to be given begrudging accommodation, Boykin, the former commander of the U.S. Special Forces Command, said on behalf of the Family Research Council (FRC) as its executive vice president.

After a full five years of Obamanation, it is time to stop using the following surprise words when describing Obamas words, actions and inactions:
* Beyond Belief
* Obama cant do that
* Obama is oblivious to critics
* Obama is unaware of facts
* Obama ignores the Constitution
We know that Obama always does the opposite of what he says that he is going to do.
We know that Obama always states a lie at the start of each paragraph of a speech or comment.
We know that thanks to gullible RINOs Boehner and McConnell, Obama has been very successful in Fundamentally transforming the United States of America into a Neo-Communist Nation.
To continue to be surprised at what Commie Obama does and doesnt do is to prove to ourselves that we are gullible, low information voters that havent learned a damn thing about the evils of the very predictable Communist Obamanation that has been killing our Republic for the last 5 Years.
Call Obama a lier when he lies, and hold Obama accountable for all of his words, actions and inactions.
It is. So long as it is OTC, other than Christian.
