Straight-Talking US Admiral Takes Down Obama’s Bible Censorship
Though the president personally professes to be a practitioner of the faith, it is becoming obvious that Christianity has been targeted for censorship and attack by President Barack Obama’s administration.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the military, where Obama administration lawyers have virtually demonized the Bible and outlawed so-called “proselytizing” by the men and women of our military.
They have practically been ordered to “check their religion at the door,” and are more or less forbidden from speaking about their faith with fellow service members, but are instead instructed to direct all religious matters to a chaplain.
But Coast Guard Rear Adm. William D. Lee was having none of it, and spoke out last year on the National Day of Prayer in fiery defense of his faith and his right to speak about it.
Lee began by explaining the absurd policy handed down from on high in the Obama administration, but lamented the fact that there weren’t nearly enough chaplains to serve the needs of the men and women in uniform.
According to The Political Insider, Lee shared a story of a recent incident in which he helped a young serviceman who was struggling mightily and had previously attempted suicide.
“Yet, if I do something, such as I did several weeks ago when I was looking into the face of a young man, 20-something years old, who had 18 months before put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger and survived, when I looked at that young man and I heard his story, the rules say send him to the chaplain,” Lee explained.
The admiral quietly added, “My heart said, give this man a Bible.”
He went on to discuss how openly religious individuals in the military have essentially been targeted by the Obama administration, and how he has been warned that he is in danger of crossing a line drawn by them.
However, he said he was glad that he has crossed that line, and would continue to do so, as he intended to continue reading and sharing his Bible, no matter what rules or regulations may be handed down by the administration.
This is great, and hopefully there are other leaders in the military who feel the same way and stand up for their religious rights in the face of persecution from the highest levels of the government.
