Attacks on the religious freedom of our military service members continue to increase. Family Research Council president Tony Perkins commented: ”More and more service members are facing harassment, demotion, and formal reprimands simply for being Bible-believing Christians. They’ve been prohibited from sharing their faith, forbidden from praying publicly, and dismissed from duty for refusing to surrender their religious convictions…Defending America’s freedom shouldn’t mean surrendering theirs, especially given that the Constitution they have sworn to uphold guarantees religious liberty as all Americans’ first freedom.”
It’s deplorable that our military must now be concerned about attacks from the enemies of America as well as attacks from their own government for simply being a Christian. The military has a long, rich history of honoring the faith of its members and that tradition should be fiercely defending and protected. Americans need to step up and demand that military personnel be given the same religious freedom rights every other American now enjoys. Such has always been the case and should always be true.
