American Military Continues to Submit to Islam: Cross Removed at Base in Afghanistan
There is no longer a single Christian church left in Afghanistan. Why just stop there? There is something seriously wrong with this picture when thousands of American and coalition men & women have sacrificed their lives upon the altar of freedom for an Islamic country, only to have the freedoms of their own brothers and sisters in arms slowly stripped away so that the ones we’ve ‘freed’ aren’t offended. When even the greatest military power in the world — the defenders of the “land of the free” — takes down the cross and falls into submission to the prison of Islam and political correctness, let it be a reminder to each of us why we must, more than ever, take it up each and every day …
By TIM MAK – “A large cross that had been prominently displayed outside a chapel on an isolated military base in northern Afghanistan was taken down last week, prompting outrage from some American service members stationed there.
‘We are here away from our families, and the chapel is the one place that feels like home,’ a service member at Camp Marmal told POLITICO. ‘With the cross on the outside, it is a constant reminder for all of us that Jesus is here for us.’
‘Not having it there is really upsetting,’ added another. ‘I walk by the chapel daily on the way to chow and the gym, and seeing the cross is a daily reminder of my faith and what Jesus accomplished for me. It is daily inspiration and motivation for me to acknowledge my faith and stay on the right path.’
Camp Marmal is a German base that hosts NATO forces. The interfaith chapel in question is supervised by the U.S. Army.
The soldiers said they found great comfort in the chapel — and the cross visible outside. ‘Sometimes the Church and the ability to openly express religious views ultimately gets people through the deployments over here,’ one told POLITICO by email.
The service member said he asked the base chaplain, a military officer, what had happened to the cross. ‘I had to take it down,’ said the chaplain, according to the solider, without further explanation.” Read more.
Flashback: US Marines Warned: Act More Muslim, Don’t Spit Towards Mecca – “Uncle Sam is getting a little weird. Make that a lot weird. Having dumped hundreds of billions of dollars into a sinkhole called Afghanistan — populated by misogynistic, pederastic, tribalistic and religiously supremacist primitives — to no avail, he has hit on a new plan for winning those ever-elusive Afghan ‘hearts and minds.’ Uncle Sam has decided that the answer lies in the latrine with the U.S. Marine Corps. No kidding. When nature calls, Uncle Sam has decided he wants every U.S. Marine equipped with a map and compass, or some other way of knowing direction. This is to ensure that no U.S. Marine in Afghanistan urinates in the direction of Mecca ever again.” Read more.
