This is a story that should really hit home with Christian believers in the United States.
Reports are surfacing like this one on Breitbart that Soldiers who hold and share their Christian faith could be persecuted and face a court martial from the Pentagon, this includes army chaplains as well.
This is alarming news to everyone who feels that this country was based on a Christian foundation and that foundation is crumbling beneath our feet, also since most everyone knows someone serving in the military.
This is also clearly alarming for soldiers in the military right now as being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.
The Obama administration Pentagon appointees have been meeting with Mikey Weinstein, anti-Christian extremist, to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.
Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians--including chaplains--sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of "treason," and of committing an act of "spiritual rape" as serious a crime as "sexual assault." He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are "enemies of the Constitution."
There is a petition that you can sign HERE that has over 60,000 signatures and growing to stop this. Please pass it around to your Christian friends and help spread the word.
Please be in prayer for the soldiers and their families during this time and also for wisdom for the Obama administration and government to make the right decisions moving forward.
