Self-declared uber-patriot Joseph Farah is now telling those good red-blooded (as opposed to what?) American Christians to boycott the military and refuse to join as long as President Obama is the commander in chief. Because Jesus would want you to. Or something.
This may sound like a strange idea coming from someone who loves and respects the U.S. military.
It’s time to deny it our sons and daughters and our grandchildren. For those young enough to serve, it’s time to deny it yourselves. It’s time to boycott the U.S. military…
I don’t want to see the best and the brightest of this generation sacrificed at the altar of political correctness, promotion of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Middle East, same-sex marriages at West Point, women in combat, interventionism all over the globe without regard to national security interests or even humanitarian reasons.
It’s time to just say no to Obama playing God with our sons and daughters…He clearly doesn’t recognize the gravest threats to our country – insolvency and global jihad. In fact, he seems to do everything in his power to foster both.
If a liberal said something like that, Farah would be demanding that he be tried for treason. Of course, he’s not the first one to do this. Paul Weyrich led a coalition of religious right groups back in the mid 90s calling for a boycott of the military because they actually allowed Wiccans and other non-Christians to join. It’s quite amusing watching those who are trying so hard to preserve Christian hegemony act like they’re the persecuted minority.
