June is “Gay Pride Month,” although it has been expanded to be more “inclusive” and is now “LGBT Pride Month.” President Obama made it a habit to issue a proclamation recognizing June as “gay pride” month, but President Trump has refused to do so. LGBT activists are crying foul! Unfortunately, the Department of Defense has taken matters into its own hands and issued a ‘pride’ memo.
One new enlistee with the Missouri National Guard is frightened to be in the same room with Bibles — Gideon Bibles are the most dangerous ones! He complained to an organization of which he is a member — the American Atheist Association — saying, “Many people had taken the religious literature including recruits as well as those beginning the enlistment procedures. I was not approached by anyone with the literature, though it was quite prominently displayed on the shelf.”
Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, cited Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, as “illustrating the extremist, militant nature of these virulently homophobic organizations’ rhetorically-charged propaganda.” Regarding those who teach orthodox Christian beliefs from the Bible, Weinstein concludes, “Let’s call these ignoble actions what they are: the senseless and cowardly squallings of human monsters.
Increasingly the religious freedoms of Christian military personnel is under assault whether it be chaplains who feel harassed for not endorsing homosexuality or the US Government ordering Bibles be burned in Afghanistan. On July 10th a letter was sent to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta asking for an explanation to recent actions taken by the Department of Defense (DoD). The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) was pleased to see one Pennsylvania Congressman’s name on the letter, but wonders where the other eighteen were. The AFA of PA thanks Congressman Mike Kelly for signing onto the letter to Leon Panetta and standing for the religious freedoms of our soldiers, sailors and Marines.
