Military Chaplains - Targeted For Court Martial

It seems that the Pentagon is vetting its religious tolerance policy with the Military Religious Freedom Foundation - a group that has compared Christian evangelism to "rape".  Its president, Mikey Weinstein, claims that Christians who proselytize are "guilty of sedition and treason".  He says a number of ridiculous things about Christians that only betray his own irrational hatred and yes, bigotry against Christians.  He obviously wants his bigotry ensconced in military policy.  Regarding "rape", Weinstein targeted his venom at Christians in saying proselytizing is "a version of being spiritually raped by fundamentalist Christian religious predators."

Weinstein also claimed that proselytizing is (wait for it!) "a national security threat".  So let me get this straight.  We have an absolutely porous border in the southwest, we still don't have clear answers on what happened in Benghazi, we are obviously dealing with jihadist "sleeper cells" as evidenced in Boston - and the Pentagon is doubling down on Christian chaplains?  Why is Weinstein being allowed to give this input?  Is the Pentagon at least entertaining input from Christian chaplains?  Who's the Commander in Chief anyway?  On second thought, maybe that last question answered the preceding questions.

We need to keep a close eye on this, as there is an obvious attempt to purge Christians from the military.  It's not hard to figure out why: because they recognize God as Supreme Authority.
