As I asked on the other thread concerning this, are they being disciplined for promoting Christianity or for promoting Christian Embassy? It is carved in stone, thou shalt not shill for an organization whilst in uniform without the permission of thy superiors. I rather think that is the situation here.
I honestly don’t know. But I’m 99% sure that had it been the moon gawd cult, it would have been quietly swept under the rug. Can’t upset the jihadists you know. After we rammed our buildings into their stolen airplanes and all that.
They should have every right to endorse in or out of military uniform.
Service in the military should not be construed as slavery or having to reject your own religious convictions. Even if it was in support for this wonderful organization they have EVERY right to...
Yet a mosque gets built separately on our grand military institution. While it has always been a hall shared for all services...
I agree, although I think this calls for a mild discipline.
He pointed to the Deputy Secretary of Defense Gordon England who in early June joined the dedication of a new Islamic prayer centre at the Quantico Marine Corps Base.
That's different. That's like dedicating a new base chapel. If all these officers did was attend Christian services in a base chapel, there would be no question of any discipline.
I think you are right. I just hope they apply this discipline even-handedly and don't just pick on those who 'shill' for Christian organizations.
In other words, "The military is not NASCAR."
I will declare. To know about some Generals and Admirals and other high officials that promote a Christian world view (as did men like Douglas MacArthur) and who are not ashamed to be known as men of faith and prayer, as CHRISTIANS would be most refreshing and welcomed.
Okay, okay. Get permission from superiors before promoting a particular organization or its programs while in uniform and at the work place. Got it.
But thank God for ANY high ranking officers who feel they need God’s help and are not ashamed to go with other officers to a prayer meeting. Thank God for CHRISTIAN prayer meetings at the Pentagon!
