Military Bars Troops from Attending Vacation Bible School Honor
Foxnews.com Todd's American Dispatch ^ | July 25, 2015 | Todd Starnes

........But our story picks up with what happened on Thursday. That was the day when the church was supposed to honor the National Guard. They had invited troops from the nearby armory to drop by with one of their Humvees.

“We were going to thank them for protecting our religious liberty,” said Pastor Hogan. “It was more of a promotion for the military – to show the kids what the military does.”

But the National Guard did not visit Bible Baptist Church on Thursday night, and the reason why has caused great anger and frustration among church members ...........

Do not join the military today and advise young people not to.

We have a Josef Stalin at the head of our government who celebrates strident homosexuality, gays in the military, fascism, militant Islam, abortion up to the moment of birth and beyond, arming the Taliban, ISIS, al Qaeda and drug gangs and is anti-Israel and anti-American. Do you deny that?

2nd is right.

I’m about 10th generation military. My late father was in World War II, Korea and Vietnam and my grandfather served during World War I and etc. My family came her long before this was even a country. I don’t denigrate the military or the people serving in it. I’m saying that I would NOT join while this crew or people like them are in charge and I would go out of my way to encourage youth not to either. PERIOD.

Yeah, your moral superiority over me is overwhelming. Why don’t you go attend a military gay pride parade or celebration and get back to us on how today’s military is hunky-dory? What’s that, you didn’t know they had those?

Bibles were burned by our military so as not to offend the locals in a Muslim country.

When members of the military burned a ‘used’ Koran, they were brought up on charges.

The respect for religion is a one way street away from Christianity.

Don’t join the military if The Regime...! Discourage others from considering it, encourage others to quit.

The men who charged up Omaha Beach —did they do it FOR THIS...??

The U.S. military has not done anything to protect anyone in this country since WWII. It has been used by tyrants to enrich themselves, or stroke their egos. The most glaring example of that is when LBJ sent 58,000 of my fellow service men to their deaths.

I will discourage any young person from joining the world police force.

If there were a legitimate need to protect the citizens of this country I would change my position, but until that happens No.

“In June, the Department of Defense gave permission for a military color guard to march in Washington, D.C.’s gay pride parade.”

Gave permission, or ordered/arm twisted them into doing so?

McNamara admitted in his later days that they kept the war going and more men dying long after they knew they couldn’t, or wouldn’t win. He should burn in hell.

I have to agree with Vet as well, how can one honestly serve a completely corrupt and morally bankrupt country? I’m sure we all love our countries, but it doesn’t mean we should be enablers.

“”Run to Liberaltsrin friends and hold hands as all die on the graves of men who would defend this country...””

It won’t be the military defending this country from what is coming down the pike today.

The only consolation is that this is a reversible condition

Revenge is just over the horizon

It is not that we couldn’t win, it is that Johnson, McNamara, and the rest of the leadership wouln’t let us win.

Go read the comments on the FoxNews site; those who agree with the policy seem mostly to be atheists.

Why do atheists find it necessary to be obnoxious when making their point, using words like “your imaginary friend” or “skydaddy”, to describe the Almighty?

OK, now let’s hear from all the happy well-adjusted piles of hot compost randomly assembled into temporarily sensate entities within a meaningless universe of dumb molecular movement.

If there’s no God, isn’t that what we all are?

;^)

ID LOVE TO BE ABLE TO EMBED A SOUND FILE HERE.. to Make Fanfare for this most remarkably accurate and lovely desription...of the A-theists.

Thank you.

Heh, heh! God didn’t make me smart enough to be an atheist. But His goodness is everywhere for those with eyes to see, that much I do know.

FWIW, the deeper into interstellar space our space probes go, the even lesser evidence is to be found of the unique conditions necessary to create & sustain life. But then, why was Dr. Carl Sagan such a determined, doctrinaire atheist?

I am unable to understand the mentality of those who believe that extinction upon death is to be....celebrated?

imagined extinction upon death eliminates the possibility of eternal SUFFERING...and thats what the A-theists most want to deny...

That’s why I posted “or wouldn’t” win. There’s no doubt in my mind we could have won in about two weeks if they had turned us loose.

It was won in the summer of 68 after the Tet Offensive, then we backed off, and let them rebuild.

It seems to me that a true atheist would be merely indifferent to notions of the supernatural. These people however, are actually angry with those who believe; some say they are more correctly termed `anti-theists’.

An example: on Interstate 40 in Tennessee, near the Cookeville exit on a hilltop, stands a Christian cross that must be at least sixty feet tall. Especially stands out if you are eastbound. An inspiring sight for me & many.

Google `Cookeville cross’. Unbelievable hostility in the comments at sites which discuss it. Like those who object to the 9-11 I-beam cross in the Ground Zero museum, atheists traveling on I-40 are `highly offended’ and `made to feel ill’ at seeing the tall aluminum reminder of Christ’s sacrifice.

“Should only be visible from roads not built with taxpayers’ money!”, one fumed.

Oh, well.......
