Two prayers....

God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Purging the military of Christians....

It continues: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/05/01/Breaking-Pentagon-Confirms-Will-Court-Martial-Soldiers-Who-Share-Christian-Faith

Back when I was in the sub service we didn't have too many overt Bible thumpers. Most of the ones who showed it were actually pretty pathetic sailors. The more they pushed Jesus the more you could bet their contribution to the command mission sucked on toast.

That being said, there were exceptions and enough that you couldn't just take it for granted a highly religious sailor was useless.

But nobody felt threatened, intimidated or harassed when "Eddie" tried to save your soul. So there really wasn't any push from on high to silence "the thumpers" or convert all of us heathens. The military as a whole had more important things to worry about.

Now it seems we're seeing the ostracizing of any Christian believers. Like it or not, you DO retain some freedom of speech in the military and if you're truly a follower of Christ you DO want to share His good news so more sinners will be saved from Hell. At least up till now you could talk about it and hope your shipmate wouldn't laugh and walk away.

Isaiah 5:20, Matthew 10:33 and Psalm 96.2 apply.

The persecution is upon us. God's will be done, may He have mercy upon us all.

This stinks! Worse than than the San tank, I suppose. Worse than a farm outhouse in August, anyway.

What happened to your invitation to people who are offended by what you say?

I like your point about the right of free speech and others that is still a prerogative of our military.
