Afraid of the Bible

I guess you should be afraid of the Bible. Those that will be judged by God certainly don’t want to know what the Bible has to say. It’s not going to go well for you once you die.

Also please quit the military. I want to have respect for those who serve the USA. You and your group are an embarrassment. My family served in the military since WWII.

Nobody will miss you once you leave.

The mission of the United States military is to defend our diverse nation against its enemies – not promote religion. A military member’s sworn oath is to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States…and bear true faith and allegiance to the same” – not to any Bible version. Our Constitution provides for separation of church and state that prohibits public imposition of private religious beliefs on Americans (USA Constitution 101). Military service is public, religious beliefs are private. Military members may privately practice the religion or non-religion of their choice, but they may not use their government service, position or office to force their private religious beliefs on fellow Americans. Military members who disrespect, dishonor and disregard our Constitution and their sworn oath need to be disciplined and required to take a course on the Constitution and their sworn oath.

I actually feel sorry for you. I saw you were a minister amongst other things before becoming a psychologist. Judge too!
I was a cop so you should be able to relate to this since you were a judge…. You can’t tell a crazy he’s crazy, they will never believe you!
Same goes to you….It’s sad to see someone from faith be misdirected by the devil but you won’t believe that. You are too smart to be fooled, heck you were a general, lawyer etc.
I won’t beat you up with what you already know. God will forgive you if you repent. For whatever reason the devil has your ear.
Also, you have it all wrong. Those that left England for here did so that they could start a country under Gods law. Yep, to follow the Bible. They put their entire families lives at risk to do so. So when you say the military is to protect our rights, our rights were founded on Christian beliefs.
I had lots of fun being a cop. Especially dealing with the crazies.

The United States Constitution 1st Amendment provides 3 religious liberties for all Americans:
1. Freedom from religion – our government (which includes the military) is prevented by law from “respecting” any religious establishment. It may not favor or promote any religion.
2. Freedom of religion – our government is prevented by law from “prohibiting” the free exercise of religion. Americans have the right to privately practice the religion (or non-religion) of their choice provided it does not violate the rights of other Americans. It does not include the right of the government or its representatives to publicly impose private religious beliefs on Americans.
3. Freedom of speech – our government is prevented from “abridging” freedom of speech about religion provided it does not violate the rights of other Americans. It does not include the right of the government or its representatives to publicly impose private religious beliefs on Americans.
 
This was the intent of our Founders as clearly and convincingly confirmed by the above and indisputably documented by historic public records. History deniers and revisionists who wish otherwise are sadly misinformed.
 
Simply stated, you have the right to your religious beliefs but you must respect the rights of other Americans to determine and enjoy their beliefs (the same right you defiantly demand for yourself). It is known as The Golden Rule and taught by Jesus in the New Testament (Matthew 7:12; Luke 6:31).

    Dear Name Withheld:

    I bet you had a lot of fun as a cop violating people’s civil rights and looking at the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights as scraps of paper that should have been tossed into the trash can along time ago. The only time cops like you believe in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is when you got accused of something and exercise your right to remain silent and have access to a lawyer.
