Forced Religion in U.S. Military

by Dick Mac

Some countries have state religions. England's is actually called the Church of England. Other countries are known as "Catholic" states or "Muslim" states.

Although many wacky Christians have made their way into the public eye here in the United States, some even being elected to public office, there is no actual state religion. The United States is not a Christian nation, per se; although the majority of religious people in the country define themselves as Christian. They are simply a minority, they are not the official religion.

It seems there are a couple of military bases in the South that are punishing soldiers who refuse to attend religious concerts that are billed as the "Commanding General's Spiritual Fitness Concert Series."

The brainchild who is enforcing this is Maj. Gen. James E. Chambers, a man who is as much an enemy to the United States as Osama bin Laden. Anyone who wants to impose their religiosity on other Americans is in complete and total violation of the Constitution. He is welcome to celebrate the beauty and wonder of his spiritual life; but, he is not allowed to impose that on others, especially those subordinate to him.

An immediate investigation of this must begin and the Pentagon must put an end to this now. These concerts must stop and Chambers must be brought to court-martial for a complete investigation of this Constitutional crime.

American freedom trumps anybody's God. Please contact your elected officials and tell them you want this stopped!
