Ken Klukowski reports at Breitbart.com:
The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense. . . . Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis."
"The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith," Breitbart reports.
On Nov. 23, 2012, I wrote on Twitter, "You do realize that 'Christian' Obama is in the process of criminalizing Christianity."
I then illustrated this on Facebook with reference to Obamacare, writing also on Nov. 23, 2012:
Obamacare requires the funding of pro-abortion provisions.
Obamamare will fine people who embrace science (the human biology of the fetus), ethics (it's wrong to kill the innocent), the Constitution (there is no basis for the federal gov't to impose its "healthcare" upon the states and the people).
The verifiable data we have vis-a-vis the Christian worldview embraces science, protects the innocent, and favors freedom.
This worldview, as such, cannot therefore be reduced to activities inside prayer closets or to singing 18 verses of "Just as I am."
Community with God and man is intended to be lived out across the whole of life. [emphasis added]
We now already have massive demonization from Obama, the Democrats, and the formerly mainstream Democrat media.
The purpose of demonization is to destroy -- reputations at first; much more later, if necessary.
Fines for not complying with Obamacare will be in force.
What do you think will happen if companies and individuals or companies refuse to pay fines?
Well, stiffer fines. Court. Jail. Possibly more.
This is one of the paths to the criminalization of Christianity currently underway.
Jesus of Nazareth commissioned his followers to take the Good News regarding God's answer to the problem of human brokenness into all parts of the world: "Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation" (Mark 16:15-16).
In view of this statement from the Pentagon, we now have the Department of Defense of "Christian" Barack Obama repudiating Christ, repudiating the explicit, normative, publicly actionable, and verifiable teaching of Jesus of Nazareth.
Memo to Obama: The scope of Christ's commission to share with our fellow human beings the Good News from the Creator (who is the basis of unalienable rights), regarding the real-world solution to the brokenness of the human condition, includes all of life, including military life, even at the Pentagon.
Obama is a mere creature. Neither he nor his servants has the authority to countermand this commission from Christ himself. The extremism of Barack Obama against God, humanity, and freedom becomes more evident with each passing day. A free-thinking people, and a freedom-thinking people, revolts.
