Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. I tend to be a bit harsh in such issues, but I do not see how the persons responsible for any such prosecution are not arrested, tried, convicted and imprisoned for subverting the Constitution of the United States of America. Or, maybe, playing along with the degeneracy inspired by marxist devotees about something in our Constitution being either invented or twisted into meaning that all religious thought and practice must be expunged.

Oops. When ever I copy/past, the breaks between where the quote left off and where I start yammering want to disappear.

I’ll be more careful in the future, promise.

They aren’t being punished for being Christians - it says right in the article that the organization in question has a prayer meeting in the Pentagon. They’re being punished for using their positions as officers, to raise funds for a private organization.

I was an Army officer, and am a Christian. Their free exercise of religion has not been infringed in any way. They can worship wherever, whoever, and whatever they want. They just can’t do fundraisers *while in uniform.*

Re Your post #10.
You’re right! George Washington said “When I put on the Soldier, I did not take off the Citizen”.
