Congressman Lies About Christian Persecution

Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-MS) has joined the chorus of fake persecution claims, telling Tony Perkins that the Obama administration is now oppressing members of the military by making them “subject to Uniform Code of Military Justice” if they are “are supporting an evangelical Christian organization.” If you can’t find real persecution, you just make shit up.

    Well, they are subject to UCMJ. Everyone in the military is, regardless of race or creed.

    Wait a sec… Aren’t all members of the military subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, whether they support radical Christian groups or not? Whys is this even a thing? Is Ninny suggesting Christians be exempted?

  • doublereed

    Uhm. It’s a uniform code. Of course everyone is subjected to it…

    @1,3,4 – I took the reference to mean they were being prosecuted under the UCMJ for merely supporting some group.

  • petemoulton

    Eric @ 6, I read it the same way. Doesn’t make it any more honest or truthful, however.

    TYPICAL OBAMA SINGLING OUT CHRISTIANS BY PUTTING THEM UNDER THE SAME RULES EVERYBODY ELSE HAS TO FOLLOW!

    The persecution is all true. You can see the heads of Christian soldiers on pikes at the gates to military garrisons.
