AL JAZEERA – The defence of freedom begins in the military

Selected Article Excerpts:

  • The first protest rally since the Vietnam era took take place on Friday, March 8 outside the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA). This time the focus was not on the subject of war but on the pervasive Christian Dominionist indoctrination within the Academy in particular, and the military in general. Over the decades, Colorado Springs – the home of the USAFA – has become ground zero for Dominionist Christianity. Perhaps there’s something in the water. If not, it’s most certainly in the air, for this is where Dominionist leaders the likes of James Dobson and the now-not-gay Ted Haggard cut their evangelising teeth with likely intent to Christianise our military.Those who follow the increasing religious indoctrination within the armed forces wonder why the rest of the country isn’t alarmed. That a nation so intent upon monitoring worldwide nuclear capabilities so willingly looks away from its own brand of religious extremists who are rooting for the end of the world – extremists who will one day potentially carry nuclear payloads on the planes – is tantamount to watching Nero fiddle while arsons set Rome on fire. If not for uber-watchdog Mikey Weinstein and his Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), the Dominionist Christian takeover of the military would be much further along.
  • At its simplest, it is clear that the USAFA and other branches of our military have permitted and continue to permit – if not encourage – high-level End Times believing leaders who abuse their positions of influence and power by imposing their very specific top-down religious dictates. It is well past time to hold the military to the standards of the offices they are sworn to uphold as well as to the Constitution.I say, thank whatever Lord you pray to that Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation continue to act as sentries on the watchtower.
