The Enemy Within

Wow. When I see headlines like this, 'Pentagon Evangelism Called National Security Threat,' I start to share Jim's pessimism about our country's future.

Christian military officers who share their faith at work in the Pentagon pose a threat to national security, according to a group that advocates for religious neutrality in the military.

Public displays of faith by high-ranking military officers project an image of a Christian nation waging war on non-Christians, both inside and outside the United States, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation said Monday.

This created an "internal national security issue every bit as great as the one we're fighting outwardly," said the organization's president, Mikey Weinstein.

Words nearly fail me. What an asinine comment. Rush has a story on this and other headlines in the news that indicate that we in this country have forgotten what the real threat to our nation is. We have people in the Middle East probably plotting at this moment to kill thousands of us, and we're worried about a weekly Bible study in Congress, how waitresses dress at a restaurant, whether Christmas trees in an airport violate somebody's rights, and on and on ad nauseum. GEEZ, is it really going to take another attack to wake us up? It's certainly starting to look that way.

JASmius adds: a few brief bullet points

***It doesn't matter whether or not we "project an image of a Christian nation"; what matters is that the "non-Christians" who are waging war against us are doing so because we're non-Muslims, and no amount of pre-emptive self-dhimmization will dissuade them from their psychopathic crusade.

***How is "military religious freedom" in America advanced by stamping it out for practicers of its dominant faith?

***Aren't they calling evangelical Christians traitors? Should I be boning up on flying lessons and ammonium nitrate recipes?


***They put the "holiday" trees back up at Sea-Tac. Which, given that they are a secular, not Christian, "holiday" symbol, shows the depth of ignorance of the Jewish rabbi who tried to get rid of them.

Why he couldn't have petitioned to simply have a few menorahs put on display as well is, of course, anybody's guess. Seems like that would have been celebrating "diversity." Or would have been before that became a codeword for anti-white racism and Christophobia.

Ironic that the Islamists keep trying to speed up with bombs a process of Western cultural suicide that we're already inflicting quite effectively on ourselves.
