Military Discrimination Against Christians??

2_22_450_todd

Fox News columnist Todd Starnes is at it again. Determined to see an anti-Christian bias in the military where none exists, he published this in a post from July 8th, 2013: There is a clear and present danger to religious liberty within the military, says a coalition of groups who believe the Obama Administration is pushing a secular, anti-religious culture on the nation's armed forces."Christians who choose to live out their faith find themselves incompatible with the secular view of … [Read more...]

How a Sitting Congressman And a Retired General Are Trying to Destroy Religious Freedom under the guise of Religious Freedom

Congressman Fleming

I'm sure many of you are now aware that there was a press conference yesterday.

Why I Am A Patriot

As we approach another Independence Day, which most Americans celebrate not with flag waving but with copious amounts of grilled hotdogs and cold beer, I can’t help reflecting on what it really means to be a patriot in the United States at this particular time.

A letter from Kathleen Johnson, VP at American Atheists concerning DOMA and the Military

I received this letter from Kathy earlier today. It touched me and I felt compelled to share it.   Back in February, I became aware of the tragic story of Tracy Johnson, who was left widowed when her wife, Donna Johnson, was killed on active duty while serving in Afghanistan.  The Johnson’s, while legally married in their home district, were partners in a marriage that was not, and could not, be recognized by the Department of Defense due to that pernicious bit of legislation known … [Read more...]

Lake Elsinore, California gives the finger to Foxhole Atheists!

 SO LET'S DO ONE BETTER! I'm all about freedom of expression and freedom of speech! In fact I wholly support someone disagreeing with my view and giving me the finger if they truly feel that I am in the wrong. However....this goes far beyond freedom of expression. The City Council at Lake Elsinore have decided that a monument should be erected to honor veterans. This monument has passed with unanimous consent of the council and will be placed on public property. There's only one problem … [Read more...]
