Will Christians be Purged from the Military?
Religious Groups Fear Christian Purge
Remember the Gestapo and the Nazi brown shirts? War tends to make men barbarians. The only hope for a brake on the violence of war and its accompanying barbarism is for the military to be filled with moral men and women who hate the violent acts they must perform out of sad necessity.
Traditionally, the military has had a significant percentage of Catholics serving. Will this continue if anti-religious and atheistic groups have their way? The military more than almost every group needs God! As they say, there are no atheists in a foxhole.
Visit Mission Capodanno serving those who serve. To send a free Catholic care package to someone on active duty go here. And pray daily for our military. Our soldiers today are like those Christian soldiers in the first century who served a pagan empire. As the United States becomes more and more pagan and barbaric those serving will have more and more difficult moral issues to face. May God give them strength and protect them from harm and from the venal administrations they often serve who see war, not as tragedy, but as political opportunity and a major money-making opportunity for the greedy!
