White House Vows To Veto Bill Protecting Religious "Actions And Speech" Of Military Members

The administration strongly objects to...speech or action which reflects conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs:
Breaking: Obama Threatens Veto of Religious Protection for Military

"...last week...Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) passed an amendment in the House Armed Services Committee protecting religious speech of service members in the military. President Barack Obama has now threatened to veto the bill if it passes the full House and Senate...The White House released a Statement of Administration Policy (SAP) on H.R. 1960, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2014. Among other items, the SAP includes as an objection to the bill:

Expansion and Implementation of Protection of Rights of Conscience of Members of the Armed Forces and Chaplains of Such Members: The Administration strongly objects to section 530, which would require the Armed Forces to accommodate, except in cases of military necessity, “actions and speech” reflecting the “conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs of the member.” By limiting the discretion of commanders to address potentially problematic speech and actions within their units, this provision would have a significant adverse effect on good order, discipline, morale, and mission accomplishment.

The SAP includes a veto threat: “…if the bill is presented to the President for approval in its current form, the President’s senior advisers would recommend that the President veto the bill.”

In other words, Obama says he will veto any bill that forbids his appointees or officers from telling a soldier that he cannot mention Jesus during prayer or have a Bible on his desk, or that keeps those appointees from telling a chaplain (who is an ordained clergyman) what religious teachings he is allowed to give in worship services, or what spiritual counseling he can give to another soldier.

All eyes are on House and Senate leadership to see if they stand firm on the bill...

This post is a follow up on: "Proselytization" Of Christian Faith In Military May Bring Court Martial, Says Pentagon - ala "Mikey Weinstein" 5-1-13 "Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians--including chaplains--sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of “spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are “enemies of the Constitution.”) - Proselytization for the idolatrous 'religion' of homosexuality will of course be excepted from any new rules that are implemented [link]. Free speech is on it's last legs and gasping for air. This "Mikey Weinstein" situation is ongoing...and may be part of a strategic move to further instigate the NWO "Manhattan Declaration" religious protest agenda [link], which has been on the back burner now for a number of years" [see post]

This world is now and always has been Babylon, the 'city of man'. Only difference these days is that it is taking off it's disguise. Marvel not to see these things coming to pass, the Word of God has foretold them. Bottom line, they can have their nasty ol' antichrist Babylon world [Hab. 2:12]. What a hollow prize...and...only to then incur the wrath of God [link].

True believer, you are to be a pilgrim and a stranger in it anyway - not taking up residence, just passing through. Like Bunyan's Christian and Faithful.

2Cor. 4:4 '...the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not'

Yes, indeed, this administration must make sure that Christians within the military are either removed or shut down; otherwise, they will not be able to (i.e., refuse)to obey orders to kill American citizens and/or detain them. Christians are at the top of the "terrorist" list. Come quickly Lord Jesus!

Silencing all who will object to the planned inclusive global spirituality is a big part of the immediate goal.

To be fair, the fact that a member of the military is a not a Christian does not automatically mean that they can be coerced to do things that violate what they do believe - like killing innocent people
