Military Focus: Bigotry or Saving Lives?

March 13, 2006

(Archive) (Download Time = 3-10 minutes.)
As Iraq heads into civil war and recruitment falls to an all time-low, the military is changing the national guard into a full-time military and begging ex-felons and people without a high-school diploma to fill the ranks.
Meanwhile, it continues to discharge its best and its brightest patriotic Americans who serve their country with bravery and distinction…because they’re gay.
Why won’t Congress let the Military “Be All It Can Be”?

    The illusion is that we need to defend ourselves with a military–while the truth is: we have to defend ourselves from our military (Consult the Swiss–they have a pretty good track record about this)

    A growing problem…and why I just stated we still need a military defense.
    We need to heed the warnings of Patrick Sookhdeo, a Muslim convert to Christianity. Sookhdeo is the author of a book titled Islam: The Challenge to the Church. In it, he warns that Islam, “alone among world faiths, has very clear-cut aims for reorganizing society to conform to its teaching. Because of this, Muslim minorities are impacting their host societies in the West in a way which no other faith is doing”?and that’s including in America’s prisons.
    Clearly, prison authorities must be more vigilant and adopt strict measures to guard against the spread of radical Islam that teaches violence and hate. In particular, they must remove radical imam chaplains who incite terrorism.
    Moderate Muslim prisoners are complaining that radical chaplains subject them to humiliation, discrimination, and even physical threats. “Imagine,” he says, “each prison Islamic [prison] community as a little Saudi kingdom behind prison walls, without the amenities. They have effectively induced American authorities to establish a form of ‘state Islam'” in correctional systems, Schwartz says.”
    From Mark Earley – President of Prison Fellowship
    And so many worry about the “threat” of Christianity.
