I believe Weinstein wittingly or unwittingly protects Islam in as much Islam is a political and legal system to wit:

In its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

This is an attack on us winning hearts and minds in the world with our military.

Attacking the first amendment is a terror attack on persons trying to free people to speak.

Thus our military is going to use the Biden Shotgun which hurts bystanders and is meant to destroy people, and not materials.

This is the MO of all these Obama people. They want to take our precision abilities, to blunt us down, to relativize religion and language and acts of “proselitizing”.

Thus, only material wealth will be the driver, not speech.

This is a long progressive program coming to fruition attacking the validity of our involvenments in foreign wars.

It is at the heart of destroying our missions of the past and following new unholy ones under the Jihad.

The “goddiscussion” website is clearly atheist or agnostic in orientation, and they are clearly surprised & upset at the strength of the anti-mikey weinstein backlash, which has forced the Air Force to clarify that an anti-religious crackdown is not in the works.

Every man I knew who is honest will tell me he spoke to the Lord before he got off that chopper on the LZ. My biggest fear as others had was getting hit on the landing zone before we could get to cover and concealment and move the heck away from our open advertisement of invading enemy territory from the sounds of the choppers. Now, we had chaplains both catholic and protestant. When a man is dying he is not that darn particular.

I damn sure would not serve one day for Obama and his pimps They have done all they could to destroy America plus our military. I take my hat off to those who are determined to serve to get rid of our clown in chief.

"...referring to Allah — Islam’s word for God god— as “an idol..."

There were lots of idols in Allah's image before the Pervert Mohammed promoted him, stripping him of his wife and children in the process.

Weinstein is a Christian-hating a-hole. He’s been at this for years.

Mikey is a whiney little baby who got his feelings hurt years ago and won’t let anyone forget it.

All anyone needs to know about Islam is taqiyeh, hudna, and the Verse of the Sword - (Sura 9:5):

"When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful."

Lumper, thanks for your service and Welcome Home!

Simple really. 1st amend forbids Congress making laws that restrict religion, speech, assembly and redress. Sgt Joe is free to make a comment and Sgt Doe is free to reply; no third party has the right to stick their NWO nose in the middle. TPTB got away with prohibiting public prayer and Christian comments, “counter” protesting except in special zones, making personal comments between a male and female punishable, punishing school kids for even thinking “gun” or “queer”, etc, and now Christians are to STFU period. Sorry, TPTB broke rule number 1 and it’s past time to make TPTB STFU period or say hello to Mr Robespeare.

Take Care. I was honored to meet a marine mustang in 1972-73 at Ft. Benning, GA. Clovis C. Coffman or “Buck” C.C. Coffman was a force recon legend. If one checks the legion of valor- he was a Navy Cross type. He studied and knew the US Infantry manuals as well as West Point classmates.

GodDiscussion is not an atheist/agnostic site. It is a site that includes all faiths—which means we have evangelical writers, Jewish writers, mainstream Christian writers and others. You really shouldn’t make assumptions just because you don’t like the message.

I missed the proper capitalization of the Lord’s name the first time so I may have assumed that “goddiscussion” meant Flying Spaghetti Monster time.

Anyway, the writer (name?) is clearly dismayed at the pushback against Mikey’s antiChristianity. That’s clear.

I guarantee ol’ Mikey won’t ever go up against Islamic Da’wa in the military & threaten the court-martial of Muslim chaplains passing out Korans. You can bet your falahfel on that.

Many muslims accepted Jesus Christ after witness by our Christian military people in Iraq. The imam-in-chief wants to make sure it never happens again.
