    The Obama Administration said that it “strongly objects” to a proposed amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, which was drafted in response to evangelical Christian service members facing growing opposition and discrimination.

    After an Air Force officer was instructed to remove a Bible from his desk lest it give the impression that he was sanctioning one particular religion, the National Defense Authorization Act was drafted to attempt to protect the religious liberties of soldiers.

    Authored by Congressman John Fleming (R-La) the amendment “required the Armed Forces to accommodate ‘actions and speech’ reflecting the conscience, moral principles or religious beliefs of the members.”

    The Obama Administration’s reaction to the proposal was that allowing soldiers to verbalize their religious and moral convictions would have a “significant adverse effect on good order, discipline, morale, and mission accomplishment.”

    Therefore, Barack and Company agrees that Christian soldiers should be admonished for sharing their faith or – OMG, worse yet – reading a Bible or leaving it out in plain sight.

    How far is Barry willing to go with this? Are dying soldiers not allowed to call out to their God on the battlefield? Should living ones not get the solace of church services or the advice of chaplains? Should soldiers devoted to their faith have to foreswear their bibles to go into military service?

    If Barry gets what he wants here, good Christians should stay out of the military and let gays and atheists do all the fighting. We'll see how quickly the nation cries "uncle."

    The problem is they are lumping individual government employees with the government itself. So what if someone has a Bible on their desk? It's not hurting anyone. Now they guys that drive around base soliciting me to go to their church; they're another story.

    Atheists and gays have been in the military for quite some time.

    This atheist USAF volunteer served in Laos, and also in the Army uniform. hussein be damned if he thinks that only parts of the US Constitution apply to those uniform.

    If I were 60 years younger, I'd gladly suit up again.

    Not exclusively. The Christians should leave and allow those without religious values to fight.

    Some of us Jews might object to that...

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Same as Christians. Those without religious values still have values. Chances are they are relatively similar to most Christian values. Just from a different source.

    Pretty sure they're some 2ID guys. Next time they stop by I'll drop the "No soliciting" bit on them.
