Trouble for Christians in the Military?

I want you to peruse this Fox News story by Todd Starnes. Disturbing, to put it mildly.

I am going to reserve judgment until I see how this plays out. If the U.S. Armed Services under Obama are going to take a line like this, what becomes of military chaplains, who have been part of the game since the founding of the country? Do soldiers no longer have freedom of speech, even to talk amongst themselves as buddies in the mess hall?

I have a hunch this all is one ball of wax with what Barack Obama promised was his intent on coming into office" "To fundamentally change the United States." My question is, if the story about the military is indeed accurate, what are we going to do about it? Adding this to the other changes that most of the American people do not seem to support, how much longer are "we the people" going to tolerate it? When will we demand that our elected representatives (who actually hold more power than the White House) do something about it? And that means Republicans AND Democrats who love their country and its historic principles more than they love their party and current societal fads pushed by the media and activists. Not all Democrats are Saul Alinskyites. I remember the Scoop Jackson and Reagan Democrats who had little tolerance for this nonsense.

A good segment of society is going to have to make a decision. Are you going to allow yourselves to continue to be seduced by the government goodie bag—provided with other people's money—or do you want this to remain a free country where you can pursue your own dreams and govern your own destiny?
