Recently, Christian symbols have been removed from the chapel at Forward Operating Base Orgun-E because a soldier complained.
It would appear that this great “Christian” nation has become a slave to the atheists and other minority groups who cry a little bit. How can this be happening?
“'It enflames this Muslim versus Christian mentality. This is not a Muslim versus Christian war — but if the Army base has a large chapel on it that has been converted to Christian-only, it sends a message that could be interpreted as hostile to Islam.'” said leading “American Atheists” president David Silverman via Fox News.
First let's look at the idea that “Christian-only” is hostile to Muslims. That would make Muslims very “Muslim only” and dangerous if provoked, wouldn't it? Just try to leave the Muslim faith for any reason, especially for Christianity, and see what happens. They kill their own for even talking of leaving the faith, much less doing it. In the United States children and wives of Muslim families have been injured or even beheaded because they were dressing “too American” and other similar issues. That is just in America; it does not even come close to the tight controls in Muslim countries.
Now let's address the issue of Christian symbols being “Hostile to Islam”. If Islam is this “peaceful” religion we have all been forced to accept, outside of what common sense tells us and what history has proved, then why would a cross seem like anything but a non-threatening symbol of another religion to these “peaceful” members of Islam?
Peaceful is an adjective meaning,
“Free from disturbance; tranquil; not involving war or violence.”(Google)
Again, what is the problem if they are peaceful? They prove over and over that they are not peaceful or accommodating to any religion other than their own.
Now the question: What is this atheist Silverman's interest in all of this? Is the U.S. Army caving in to intense pressures from the Muslim nation of Afghanistan? Are they catering to the minority atheist group who seem to be exploiting a situation for their own purposes of removing any thoughts of God from their minds? It would appear so. Atheists have a goal of removing all religious items from their lives so they can “finally be free to think” free of God. This is one of their main agendas and it imposes on the “majority” which by the way are Christians in the United States.
The Afghanistan government has been made aware that they removed or boarded over the Christian symbols such as a cross. Why did this “peaceful- Free from disturbance; tranquil; not involving war or violence” religious government of Islam need to be told this? Truth is stranger than fiction. Could it be that “Islam” is not so peaceful? Is it right for the minority group which rightfully should be called a religion, the “atheists”, to tell everyone else not to be openly religious? They are openly anti-religious. Is it unconstitutional for the military to comply with their demands? That depends on whether or not military law still obeys the Constitution. Most importantly is all this OK with the American people? These are important questions to get settled on. You decide, but remember, actions do speak louder than words.
