Pentagon Bans More Christians From National Day of Prayer

 

The pathetic Pentagon takes another swing at Christianity, and bows down to Islam once again. Apparently the Pentagon has no issues with the Islamic scriptures, that speak out against Christians, but they do have issues with people like Rev. Graham, that speak the truth about Islam. They also had issues with the truth being spoken about the Islamic attack at Fort Hood, as they whitewashed the Islamic factor in their report on the massacre. I guess that they only see what they want, as they remain in their “moderate” Islam is coming to the rescue fantasy.

PENTAGON BANS MORE CHRISTIANS FROM NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
John G. Winder, The Cypress Times
Published 04/27/2010

Not only has the Pentagon “disinvited” Franklin Graham, the son of Billy Graham from the National Day of Prayer, they have also now disinvited the “National Day of Prayer Task Force,” a Christian organization headed by Graham that includes Shirley Dobson, wife of James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family.

Newsmax reports that Pentagon spokesman George B. Wright confirmed via e-mail that the National Day of Prayer task force will not participate in the National Day of Prayer event that the Pentagon will observe on May 6.

The e-mail read in part, “While we appreciate [Franklin Graham’s] worldwide outreach, and his willingness to speak at this Pentagon multi-faith event, his presence would be inappropriate.”

Newsmax writes, “Wright did not elaborate on why a speech by Graham, whose Samaritan’s Purse organization has come to the aid of millions of needy people and children around the globe, would be ‘inappropriate.’”

Graham has come under attack, primarily by Anti-Christian Mikey Weinstein the leader of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, an organization that has sued the U.S. Army in the past demanding policy that prevents any soldier from openly expressing a belief in Jesus Christ.

Last week Franklin Graham spoke to Fox News about his stand on the Muslim faith, “I do not agree with their religion at all. And if you look at what the religion does just to women, women alone, it is just horrid. And so yes, I speak out for women. I speak out for people that live under Islam, that are enslaved by Islam and I want them to know that they can be free.”

Newsmax also reports that Wright’s email says that the event at the Pentagon, “will continue as scheduled under the administration of the office of the Pentagon Chaplain.”

“Asked which chaplains, representing which faith traditions, will be involved in the upcoming event, Wright replied: ‘The agenda has not been finalized.’” – Newsmax

Franklin Graham spoke to CBN about the controversy,

“It’s unfortunate that the military felt they needed to bow to the complaints of just a couple of people, when about 89 percent of the American people are Christians… they identify with the Christian faith. It doesn’t mean they are living with Christ, but 89 percent identify with the Christian faith.”

Graham also said, “I think no question … religious freedom is under attack. There has been an erosion now for many years, but we have seen it really accelerate in the last 10 years. This political correctness that has crept in, that if we stand for what we believe in, all the sudden we are not tolerant. They almost make it look like we are participating in hate speech, when we say that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life, and there’s no way to God except through Christ and Christ alone. They are interpreting that now as being hostile and hate speech.”

To Franklin Graham’s point, the Pentagon has expressed no trepidation over those parts of the Koran which state the belief that Islam is the only way, and that Christianity is wrong. It is only when a Christian makes such statements that it becomes inappropriate.

From the Koran –

“Oh People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion, nor say of God anything but the truth. Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, was (no more than) a messenger of God, and His Word which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him. So believe in God and His messengers. Say not, ‘Trinity.’ Desist! It will be better for you, for God is One God, Glory be to Him! (Far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is God as a Disposer of affairs” (4:171).

“The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the son of God. That is but a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. God’s curse be on them; how they are deluded away from the Truth! They take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords in derogation of God, and (they take as their Lord) Christ the son of Mary. Yet they were commanded to worship but One God: there is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him! (Far is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)” (9:30-31).

This past weekend Barack Obama met with both Billy and Franklin Graham at the North Carolina home of Billy Graham. During that meeting Franklin Graham expressed his concerns to the President. The Commander-in-Chief assured Franklin Graham he would “look into it.”

    Hey, I'm surprised that the whole dang thing ain't been called off. The Obama socialist agenda is about destroying all religious references altogether. Islam is not a religion anyhow….it's mind control and slavery….just like nazis and communism……and Obamanism.

    The problem is that most Christians sit silently, while others are sucidial and actully support Islam.

    Christianity is getting weakened, and Islam is getting strengthened. Just like what is happening in the UK. We both know how well that is working out.

      However I heard on the news that Brown has done a fatal mistake. He forgot to remove one microphone from his costume ater a political debate where the opponent brought up the subject of massimigration. The debate seems to have been polite but afterwards when he thought nobody was listening he slandered his political opponent. Brown has apologized but she says she will no longer vote on Labour .

    That's a given.

    The Church must regain its guts, stand up, be willing to make any sacrifice that is necessary to boldly speak the truth OUTSIDE OF THE WALLS OF THE CHURCH BUILDING before its too late!!!!!!! It must act now!!!

  11. April 28, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    It took Christians 466 years to react to constant arselifter aggression with the Crusades. It would behove Christians to be reminded of their history. This is a good place to start –

    If Jeffrey Hammond thinks pislam is a beautiful religion he must either be barking mad or a closet converting using taqyyia.

    I guess the secular humanists philosophy is now usurping their authority in redefining the NDP. The god other faiths are praying to is not the same god as the God of Judeo-Christianity, as the bible clearly teaches. However, we must continue to pray for our friends of other faiths that they may one day soon come to know the true God and Father of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.

    Hi .
    I think the representative of every Christain Church should speak up NOW !
    If the Pope has nothing else to do, let him start by picking a real fight.
    And make clear that Christianity won't be swept away just like atthe start of the Crusades.

  16. April 28, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    I agree, the Vatican is basically standing around and watching Islam slowly devour Europe. This needs to stop.

    Which isn't nearly as bad as former Australian Prime Minister, Bob Hawke, who called a pensioner who dared to ask for a pension increase a Silly old bugger! right to his face and on camera! This was back in the 1980s. He never lived that down.

    The ObaMAD Legend

    Here's a suggested book title for anyone who will someday write about the hopefully short-lived, Obamaniac dictatorship:

    "Double-Crossers, Cross-Dressers & Cross-Bashers"

    (For more Obamania, Yahoo "Obama Avoids Bible Verses," "Obama Supports Public Depravity" and "David Letterman's Hate, Etc.")

    I am delighted that Franklin Graham has been stopped from preaching at the National Day of Prayer, and the the NDP Task Force has also been dislodged from their position of power within the Pentagon. Graham's message is basically a crusader-style Christianity that no longer represents most Evangelicals, much less mainstream Christians. Certainly he does not–or should not–represent the attitude of the US military.
    Let's not forget how highly he valued and spoke out for the Iraq invasion, which has produced up to a million dead, two million in exile, thousands of women reduced to prostitution to support their children, and the complete displacement of the Iraqi Christians.

    Here's a little history lessons for you Chicken Hawks. Christian churches were never bothered in Iraq under Saddam, because under Saddam the Baa'ath party, a secular party, was the party of government. Saddam's Foreign Minister was an Chaldean Catholic. Christians were active in teaching, the arts, government at all levels. Why? Because the Baa'ath Party was secular, and for that reason repressed the Islamic parties.
    When the Baa'ath Party was illegally dissolved by the Americans, it resulted in the immediate growth of sectarian parties, which was the beginning of the end for Christian integration in Iraq society. Today they live in an enclave, easy pickings for a quick genocide, if nobody arms them. Why? Because of the idiocy of invading Iraq and presuming to tell them what kind of government to set up, which was a disaster on so many levels it would take a library to tell it all.

    You will meet few Iraqi Christian leaders who do no lament the dissolution of the Baa'ath Party. They didn't like Saddam, and rightly so, but they did well under his secular one-party state. The Americans broke up the Baa'ath party for the same reason that superpowers involved in imperialistic adventures always do–once they get to pushing people around, all they really want to do is hurt and dominate, whatever else they may say. Their primary reason is simple aggression.

    Franklin Graham has always worshiped power, and has many fewer scruples than his father. He has always promoted the idea of Holy War–that it is the will of God that America's mission is to dominate the Muslim-majority countries. In that way, people like him can proselytize the "10/40" window, the 28 Muslim-majority countries between 10 and 40 degrees north of the equator. They love the Muslims so much, you see, that they will use any kind of deceit and organized violence to make sure that they have the right religion.

    And in case you're not aware of it, that's a recipe for religious. I'm sure a lot of you on this site would be delighted to have that, but the majority of Americans is not going to let you have it.

    Christians are sick and tired of the Religious Right high-jacking our faith. The people are turning away from the Religious Right, sick of your hating, your intolerance, and your lust for war. Even the Evangelical movement is changing, and no longer wants your message of hatred, mediocrity, cultural imperialism and militarism.

    And we in the mainstream churches are loving every minute of it, just watching you guys go down and lose the power you once had.

    I love Mikey Wienstein because he's a great American who understands that soldiers serve the Constitution, not any particular religion–and especially not your brand of extremism.

    Long live religious liberty! Go down, Religious Right, you day is over, and your juvenile attempt to become a state religion is defeated! Thanks be to God!

    I'm a mainstream Christian, and I can tell

      Actually the voice of Americans against Islam is on the rise. A true Christian would not stand for what calls for their destruction.

      If you are a Christian, you are defending a religion that calls for the destruction of Christianity. I noticed that you cannot refute a word a that the Rev. stated about Islam, and since you support Islam, you tolerate rape. That says a lot.

      If I were a chicken hawk, I would not be using my real name. Centuries later, and more land taken over by Muslims, and you still cannot see that interfaith talks change nothing. If you want to defeat me, come and kill me. It is that simple.

    Well, well, well, lookee here—a Pill-Grim Troll! You're mainstreaming alright–mainly screaming a bunch of garbage about Franklin Graham. You are not worthy to tie his shoelace. You are probably from one of the gay churches that teaches heresy, too. Have you hugged your Muslim today? Do you know where your pedophiles are? Just say no to Truth!! Tell your BFF, Rick Warren, to take a hike, okay? Some "mainstream church" that is. And you speak for Christians? Riiiggghhhht!

    MIKEY WEINSTEIN, JESUS-BASHER

    What kind of wine has Mikey Weinstein been drinking?
    As an anti-Christian Jewish supremacist and as the president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, he's doing all he can to create an anti-Jewish backlash and help bring about the predicted endtime Holocaust of Jews that'll be worse than Hitler's.
    Neither Falwell, Hagee nor any other Christian initiated this prediction. But Weinstein's ancient Hebrew prophets did.
    In the 13th and 14th chapters of his Old Testament book, Zechariah predicted that after Israel's rebirth ALL nations will eventually be against Israel and that TWO-THIRDS of all Jews will be killed!
    Malachi revealed the reasons: "Judah hath dealt treacherously" and "the Lord will cut off the man that doeth this."
    Haven't evangelicals generally been the best friends of Israel and persons perceived to be Jewish? Then please explain the hate-filled back-stabbing by David Letterman (and Sandra Bernhard, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher etc.) against followers of Jesus such as Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.
    Weinstein wouldn't dare assert that citizens on government property don't have freedom of speech or press freedom or freedom to assemble or to petition the government.
    But God-hater Weinstein maliciously wants to eliminate from government property the "free exercise" of religion – especially by evangelicals – a freedom found in the same First Amendment. Significantly, this freedom was purposely listed FIRST by America's founders!
    And Weinstein wouldn't try to foist "separation of church and state" on strongly-Jewish Israel, but he does try to foist this non-Constitution-mentioned phrase on strongly-Christian America.
    In light of Weinstein's Jewish protectionism and violently anti-Christian obsession, Christians in these endtimes should be reminded of Jesus' warning in Mark 13:9 (see also Luke 21:12) that "in the synagogues ye shall be beaten."
    Maybe it's time for some modern Paul Reveres to saddle up and shout "The Yiddish are Coming!"

    • May 10, 2010 at 9:14 am

      The concept of "separation of church and state" is demonstrated in the Bible as going back to Moses' time, although its not specifically discussed as such.
