‘God Bless the Military’ Under Attack: Atheists Demand Marine Corps Sign be Removed

‘God Bless the Military’ Under Attack: Atheists Demand Marine Corps Sign be Removed

I have seriously come to despise the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. They are at it again. This time in Hawaii where they are demanding a Marine Corps base take down a sign that has been on the premises for 14 years, since 9/11, that says ‘God Bless the Military, Their Families, and the Civilians Who Work with Them.’ All in tasteful red, white and blue in a nod honoring our military and Americans; especially those who perished that bloody day in 2001. Atheists want that sign relocated to the chapel. In fact, the arrogant bastards are demanding it. Who the hell do they think they are? These people don’t give a damn about constitutional rights, religious freedom or remembering the fallen. All they care about is scrubbing God from all of society. They are just evil.

Hawaiian Marine Corps

From BizPac Review:

Anti-religious forces have their sights on a Hawaii Marine Corps base for displaying a sign that reads, in part, “God Bless the Military,” and a group of chaplains are fighting back.

The sign, erected after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, has been standing for 14 years.

Chaplain Ron Crews, executive director of Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, said the attempt to remove the sign is more about removing God from the public square.

“Only someone with a great misunderstanding of the First Amendment or an axe to grind against religion would claim that such a slogan poses a threat or in any way unconstitutional,” Crews said in a statement. “The real threat is posed by those who want to whitewash any reference to God from public discourse — even ones as innocuous and uplifting as this one.”

Crews compared the sign’s message to that of the national motto.

“‘God bless our military’ is a slogan little different than the official national motto, ‘In God we trust,’ that appears so publicly on our money, and the courts have repeatedly upheld it,” he said. “From the founding of our country, every president, including President Obama, has called on God to bless America.”

Led by perpetually offended bully Mikey Weinstein, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation demands that the sign be relocated to the grounds of the base chapel, according to the Marine Corps Times.

The sign’s message, in its entirety, reads: ”God bless the military, their families and the civilians who work with them.”

A message that violates the left’s perverted take on the separation of church and state, according to a letter to commanding officer Col. Sean C. Killeen from Weinstein “special” assistant, Blake A. Page.

“This sign is a brazen violation of the No Establishment clause of the Constitution, as it sends the clear message that your installation gives preference to those who hold religious beliefs over those who do not, and those who prefer a monotheistic, intervening god over other deities or theologies,” Page wrote.

Following a now familiar pattern, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which is listed as an anti-Christian bigotry group by the American Family Association, claims unnamed Marines contacted them.

Supposedly, 23 Marines were afraid of reprisals if they filed a complaint through the chain of command — so much for the longstanding Marines mantra, “Improvise, Adapt and Overcome.”

Weinstein told the Times that the sign is illegal and damages unit cohesion, but he is willing to allow it to remain on the base, assuming officials meet his demands.

“We have no issue with the message that is being posited with that sign if they move that to the chapel grounds, but it is certainly certainly something that is in violation the No Establishment Clause of the Constitution,” he said. “When it is not on chapel grounds it is divisive.”

The Times reported:

Weinstein said that if base officials continue to allow the sign to exist in its current location, they would also have to allow signs that said “There is no God to bless our military, their families, and the civilians who work with them” or signs pointing to “Allah, Satan or the flying spaghetti monster.”

Given the President Obama-led military’s history of caving to Weinstein’s demands, after 14 years, the sign’s days are numbered in its current location.

These people have no right to go around the country ordering police, government officials and the military in regards to what they can and can’t do when mentioning God. They need to go pound a whole beach full of sand. I seriously doubt that even one Marine contacted these jack wagons. The government and authorities have frequently been caving to these extortionists. A notable number of local police officers have told them to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine, which is appropriate. Given this is in Hawaii, Obama’s home turf, the sign will probably be gone soon. But not without a fight. Chaplain Ron Crews, executive director of Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, is going to fight these morons tooth and nail. I can’t believe there are people out there who make it their life’s work to destroy faith and goodness everywhere they go. But these jerks have found a home in Obama’s Marxist fiefdom. They should be run out of every town they encounter – preferably tarred and feathered.
