Back in June, during the height of graduation season, I wrote a piece about how an organization known as the Military Religious Freedom Foundation successfully banned retired Lt. General Jerry Boykin from speaking at a prayer breakfast at Ft. Riley Army Base because he was supposedly anti-Muslim and anti-gay.
It turns out the real reason he was banned was due to the fact that he’s also a professing Christian, as we learned from the founder of MRFF, Mikey Weinstein:
“(Boykin) sows hatred and heinous divisiveness with his sickening screed of fundamentalist Christian supremacy . . .”
Weinstein went on to say how Boykin’s appearance was causing unnamed soldiers to actually break down in tears.
Well, Mr. Weinstein and the emotional wimps he represents are at it again. This time, it’s a Bible causing the troops trained to kill to cower in fear. MRFF is demanding that Air Force Major Steve Lewis be “aggressively punished” for having an open Bible on his desk at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In an interview with writer and FOX News contributor, Todd Starnes, Weinstein defended his accusation:
“It (the Bible) is very obviously a statement of Christian preference. Christian primacy. Had that been the Book of Satan or the Koran, there would be blood in the freaking streets.” He went on to accuse Major Lewis of “harboring and encouraging a totally abhorrent example of First Amendment civil rights violations.”
In his official letter of complaint, Milquetoast Mikey claimed to represent “thirty-three very scared Air Force families.” Although one of the traumatized troops was able to muster up enough courage to snap a few photos of the intimidating book to submit as “evidence.” Unofficial reports indicate that the soldier survived.
As we continue to see situations like these play out, there are two glaringly obvious conclusions to be made:
- The culmination of generations of touchy-feely education that focuses on “me-first self- esteem” has finally arrived. Too many of today’s men and women in the military are concerned more about how things make them feel, particularly when it comes to the politically correct issues of today, than they are about their responsibilities as soldiers.
- Christianity is the target of the extreme left. To use military terms, while they typically camouflage this fact by using the patterns of the LGBT and pro-Muslim agendas—though not specifically mentioned in Major Lewis’s case, it’s a pretty good bet they’re behind the complaint—the absolute annihilation of Christianity from American society remains the primary objective.
Major Lewis voluntarily removed the Bible from his desk while the case is being reviewed, but according to Colonel Damon Feltman, commander of the 310th Space Wing, a resolution to this situation remains inconclusive and unclear.
Obama’s social engineering is creating military full of wusses, dealing a blow to the Constitution it is sworn to protect and defend in the name of advancing a politically-correct progressive agenda.
