US War Games target Christians and Evangelicals as “The Enemy”

Christians/Evangelicals same as Neo-Nazis

by Dr. Richard Swier

Todd Starnes from Fox News Radio reports, “A War Games scenario at Fort Leavenworth that identified Christian groups and Evangelical groups as being potential threats.” Fort Leavenworth is home of the Army Command and General Staff College (CGSC). The CGSC is a graduate school for United States Army and sister service officers, inter-agency representatives, and international military officers.

The college prepares US Army Majors and Lieutenant Colonels for battalion and higher command assignments and division and higher level staff positions.

Starnes also reports:

  • A 2009 Dept. of Homeland Security memorandum that identified future threats to national security coming from Evangelicals and pro-life groups;
  • A West Point study released by the U.S. Military Academy’s Combating Terrorism Center that linked pro-lifers to terrorism;
  • A senior military official at Fort Campbell sent out a lengthy email officially instructing officers to recognize “the religious right in America” as a “domestic hate group” akin to the KKK and Neo-Nazis because of its opposition to homosexual behavior.

According to Starnes, “The House Armed Services Committee is considering a religious liberty amendment  to the National Defense Authorization Act Wednesday over fears the military is punishing soldiers for expressing their religious faith.”

“The men and women who put their lives on the line to defend our freedoms should not have their own religious freedom jeopardized during their military service,” said Rep. John Fleming (R-LA), who authored the amendment.

Other incidents reported by Starnes include:

  • A service member received a “severe and possibly career-ending reprimand” for expressing his faith’s religious position about homosexuality in a personal religious blog.
  • An enlisted service member received a career-ending punishment for sending personal invitations to his promotion party which mentioned that he would be providing Chick-fil-A sandwiches due to his respect for the Defense of Marriage Act.
  • An Air Force officer was told to remove a Bible from his desk because it might offend someone. The officer had kept the Bible on the desk for 18 years;
  • A chaplain was relieved of his command over a military chapel because, consistent with DOMA’s definition of marriage, he could not allow same-sex weddings to take place in the chapel.
  • An enlisted service member was threatened and denied promotion by a senior NCO for expressing – during a personal conversation – his religious belief in support of traditional marriage.
  • Last month Rear Admiral William Lee told a National Day of Prayer audience that religious liberty was being threatened by Pentagon lawyers and service members are being told to hide their faith in Christ.“Leaders like myself are feeling the constraints of rules and regulations and guidance issued by lawyers that put us in a tighter and tighter box regarding our constitutional right to express our religious faith,” he said.

    Did not our Lord tell us such, and worse, would happen in these latter days? I will assure you however, there there is nothing to fear about death. I was in a coma for 6 weeks back in 1986, in which I was declared dead three times. The doctors convinced my mother that it was best to remove me from life support. So, she called a priest to deliver last rights. Before the priest arrived, an old woman came in. She was from the same small home town in Germany as my maternal grandfather had come from. This woman told my mother not to remove me from life support. That God had something for me to do. The next day I came out of the coma. (I had three visions while in the coma, that space here would not allow to relay. Let's just say they woke me up).

    Visited the doctor a couple of days later for a follow up. He just sat behind his desk staring at me incredulously. I asked him what was the problem. He stated that he had been an atheist his whole life. Yet there must be a God, because I was sitting there in front of him. That he could provide no medical reason that I was alive. Much less sitting there talking with him. That all medical evidence indicated that I should be dead, or at the very least a vegetable.

    While in the coma, I had experienced the greatest peace that I've ever known. When I came out of the coma, it was the most angry I have ever felt. I hated being back in this world, after having experienced such peace. I know look forward to leaving this world. For I know there is a vastly better existence after this life. There is much more I could share in order to alleviate fear or worry. But this will do for now.

    Don't fear, the Lord said these things will come to pass, and they are. He stated that He would never leave us, nor forsake us. And I can tell you for a FACT, that God is a Man of His Word.

    The only ones that need to fear, are the evil ones in 'power' now. For they have no idea of what they are going to be missing out on. They aren't going to get away with ANYTHING. As a man sows, so shall he reap. Both in this life, and the one to come. I actually feel sorry for them. For they are going to be caught in their own traps. And they shall NOT escape. They need to repent, and restore what they have stolen. For THAT is their ONLY avenue of escape. And they don't have much time in which to do it either. For the Kingdom of Heaven draws nigh….

    well this WAS prophesied, yes. Truth is being thrown to the ground and trampled on by those that love and cling to evil of every kind. if anyone that votes in this country besides the evangelicals and Christians that are bold enough to hold their faith no matter what, had any common sense, they would not be considered an invasion. they steal what was built by the grace of God, they kill off any witnesses including defenseless, voiceless babies, they are as loose immorally as they can be and then they want us to consider them as humans too only so they can (like any viperous snake) bite us when we don't expect it and destroy the only ones that would argue to keep this filth alive. they give fruitless arguments because they are fruitless (childless) they literally kill off their own and in Leviticus it even says that their blood is on their own heads (I believe that was God's pre-Christ warning to never care what happens to them in the first place). it should not be a surprise that Obama is ushering in everything already foretold about. but then evil has a tenacity to continue evil.

    that's over 98 percent of the world in this era. God destroyed the original nephilim. this is a new era of it. and THOSE were abominations in Noah's day. (Matthew 23 and 24), be prepared to leave earth (Bible: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) and remember that this world is Satan's domain. being a friend to God means the world hates you more and more. being a friend to the world means you lose your soul and are already Satan's puppet. there's no blurriness there. and yes the military is NOT on God's side. (Daniel 12) this king does as he pleases and favors fortresses and uses the help of a foreign god (technology and science or nukes in this case) to achieve his goals, and doesn't care about homosexuals or feminism or any of that. consider that.

    right of preservation? but they eliminate the very people that formed this nation and let them so graciously mooch for so long….how does that "right of preservation" work if you eliminate the ONLY and LAST reason that this planet is even still in the universe? God can do whatever he wants. if you think our good grace or wishful thinking dodged the last couple of comets that passed this way……..that's pathetic. how does that law of preservation work once us evangelical Christians are off this planet? it doesn't. Quote from my favorite Japanese cartoon, "that gets you a cup of tea at las noches". yeah so what does killing the Christians get a man of sin. some shiny hunk of metal that gets plowed further underground when a meteor finally makes contact? Ooooo it better be a huge hunk of metal.
