I am really fed up with the government bowing to political correctness and the insanity of liberals who label everything Christian as bad and accept any other religious beliefs as valid. I’m sick and tired of hearing liberals claim that many of the founding fathers were deists and not Christians so Christianity is bad. This lunacy is going to wreck the country.
The recent revelation that in 2011 our Department of Defense allowed a Muslim cleric to pray at a memorial for dead Seal Team 6 members is a prime example. Some of the families recently held a press conference to reveal what happened and demand an apology. This cleric damned our fallen heroes. Why in the world would the Department of Defense allow something like this? What idiot was in charge?
In March 2013 a leader of the Muslim group known as the Council on American Islamic Affairs (CAIR) touted that Muslims in America should be governed by Sharia (Muslim law) and not U.S. law. This Muslim declared that Islam is the only religion and will take over the world. Google CAIR sometime and you will see the connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist organizations.
Now the Department of Defense is re-writing its policy on religious tolerance. An atheist is on the committee and appears to have convinced some of our leaders to court-martial service members who share their faith. That will make life pretty tough on chaplains. The Secretary of the Army published his Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness Program memorandum on 25 March 2013 where he outlined the important elements of soldier and family fitness. The “Five Dimensions of Strength” were physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and family. However, after highlighting spiritual fitness Secretary John McHugh then wrote that spiritual fitness was optional. Huh?
Our government is so politically correct to everything except the societal and cultural elements that made this country great it is no wonder we are led by people who lack honor and are not protecting us. Did you know that there have been five instances of a terrorist reaching his intended target inside the United States since President Obama took office the first time? These include a murder at a recruiting office in Little Rock, the underwear bomber on an airplane, the Fort Hood terror attack called work place violence, the attempted bombing at Times Square, and the bombing at the Boston Marathon. The Administration refers to the war against terrorists as overseas contingency operations and tries hard to avoid ever naming our foes as what they are – Muslim fanatics. The Benghazi debacle now finally being considered newsworthy by mainstream media was not acknowledged initially as an attack by al Qaeda when it clearly was one.
We need to wake up and re-connect with our history and the values that made this nation great. We also had better acknowledge the dangers we actually face and call them whatever they are. Trying not to offend people who hate us anyway is beyond stupid. Honesty with ourselves is critical if we are to survive as a nation.
