The liberationist philosophy underpinning Obamas co-ed, gay-friendly military holds, on the one hand, that sexuality is inherently fixed and thus beyond the control of individuals, and on the other that sexuality is subject to re-shaping through changes in culture. The social engineers of the military promised that age-old problems between men and women thrown together in close quarters would suddenly vanish under enlightened training.
It hasnt happened. Out of the militarys confused culture of loose moral philosophy, strict feminism, and combustible masculinity has come an endless stream of reports on sexual misconduct in the ranks. This week Congress mulled over the Pentagons admission that sexual assault cases have spiked 35 percent in the last two years.
The Pentagon, using anonymous surveys and sampling research, estimated that 26,000 active-duty personnel experienced unwanted sexual contact last year, up from about 19,300 in 2010, according to an ongoing Defense Department study, reported the Washington Post.
How strange, then, that a military reeling from an epidemic of coarseness and immorality would continue to marginalize Christianity in its ranks. It is hardly suffering from an outbreak of Christian virtue and witness.
Defense Department materials classifying Catholics and Evangelicals as extremists on par with jihadists came to light recently. The Pentagon pooh-poohed these materials, which were used for a U.S. Army Reserve presentation, as a random incident. But it wasnt. Christians are routinely treated as extremists by Obamas politically correct generals.
In 2010, Admiral Michael Mullen informed a Christian chaplain who opposed the repeal of the Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy that if you cannot get in line, resign your commission. That same year Lieutenant General Thomas Bostick told bigoted soldiers to get with the program or get out. In 2011, the Army, until a backlash prevented the change, planned on tweaking its visiting guidelines......

Enlightened training new code words for brain washing.
The policy about preventing officers from pressuring people with their religious or political beliefs is pretty standard and is actually a good thing. Ever been around a Jehovah’s Witness or a Mormon in proselytizing mode? And theoretically, it should keep Muslims from pressuring inferiors or fellow soldiers.
But they are defining proselytizing as something like having a Bible on the desk or wearing a cross. Furthermore, I doubt that they plan to apply it equally. Muslims will be free to wave their Korans around, but Christians will not even be allowed to wear a cross.
If they girls don’t like the macho culture of the military when they get in, they can hang up curtains and such, but I suspect that when they fall into the hands of the enemy it will do them little good.
Fear of the cross in action I guess.
What did they expect? Next they’ll also teach them not to respect the US (and state) Constituions, then to kill whomever they’d like on orders (reguardless of their status as US Civilians, even if unarmed)!
Don’t they also train the men to desensitize them to the suffering of women in case of capture by the enemy?
“And theoretically, it should keep Muslims from pressuring inferiors or fellow soldiers.”
Not going to happen-there will be an exemption for Muslims here, just like they got on Obamacare/s;)
Don’t think so.
I knew I’d read something long ago. This is what I was thinking of:
(Excerpt from Trip Report Summary of Commissioner Elaine Donnelly). During her two-day trip to Fairchild AFB, Washington, August 9-11, 1992, Donnelly talked to instructors about their realistic rape scenario, in which male trainees are taught to manage more intense feelings when a female colleague is threatened with sexual assault or worse, so that enemy captors cannot exploit those emotions. Donnelly described parts of the SERE training that she saw at Fairchild Air Force Base during her visit:
Not sure if emotions can be trained.Logic and heartless are not the same for many but I get your point.
Emotions don’t need to be trained, they just need to be ruled by common sense. Logic is not heartless, it’s just a way to calmly figure out what is best.
