"Pentagon will seek to court martial soldiers who share the Christian faith"
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/...tian-Faith

This is the current trendy link being circulated among my religious FB friends. I tried to fact check it, but only found cut/paste articles on religious "news" sources and forums. It's from Breitbart, the single most biased "news source" I've seen short of the North Korea Informer (fake newspaper I made up), so it's very likely blown out of proportion and context.

First, if it has roots in truth, good. The American military is not the Righteous Hand of Yahweh. Despite what the red states think, we are not fighting the Muslim religion nor trying to spread "good ol' 'Merican faith" to other countries. The church services offered at basic training were of a wide variety, including Muslim and Jewish. Excluding the civilians of a different faith who want to join is not a recommended marketing scheme.

Second, I believe I've found the most batshit crazy comment section on the internet, without crossing into actual insanity. Just on the threshold. You will be hard pressed to find more use of CAPS LOCK, homophobia, and bigotry anywhere else on the internet. Seriously, click on any of the medley of biased-sounding articles and scroll to the comments. I saw the term "Jewish atheist liberal" and a user named "Tariq_Toulhead_Al_Tabilcloth" complaining about all the propaganda in media. Good for killing an afternoon.


Edit: This has to be my favorite one so far.

Faith in Humanity, decreasing.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Welcome to the right wing echo chamber. Where everyone agrees with everyone else and reality is not invited to the party. This is the same kind of thing that made election night 2012 such a riveting affair on Fox News.

Wow, so no one here thinks a court martial is a little steep for talking about santa clause to people who worship the easter bunny?

No we think this story is just bullshit. It leads back to breitbart.com and has no actual facts. If it was true there would be a much bigger fuss about it. Besides the problem in the military is the exact opposite of this.

No. See my post in the Politics section about my political predictions. Tis is just another example of how the social conservatives are burning out and collapsing under the weight of their own bullshit.

Here's the real story. The Pentagon released a statement that it was not the policy of military commanders to prosthelytize religious faith to members of the military. And that violations of this policy can make one subject to disciplinary measures which could include military court martial and / or lesser summary punishments. This comes in the wake of prosthelytizing problems and religious harassment within several sections of the military including a scandal at the USAF Academy. You CAN share your faith with other members of the military. You CANNOT browbeat, coerce, haze, shun, deny promotions, intimidate, force or threaten people when they won't accept your religious positions. The official position of the DoD and the US Government is to remain religiously neutral.

Cut to douches like Sean Hannity and asshole paranoia dissemination services like Newsmax, WorldNet Daily, who now tell you that if you share your CHRISTIAN faith (we don't care about other religions), you will be court martialed for it. NO, NO, NO, NO......NO!!!! More delusions of persecution when they are expected to live according to the same rules everyone else has to. You can't use the leverage of the military's chain of command to force people to believe and those who attempt that should be punished for it.

These people believe IT IS THEIR RIGHT TO DOMINATE AND CONTROL EVERYONE ELSE AND TO HELL WITH THE CONSTITUTION AND THE RULE OF LAW. And if you ever check them on their power grabs, they play the professional victim card.

If anything you'd be court martialed for criticizing religion. Christianity is a powerful force in the military, need to spread the word of Jesus to the infidels after all.
