Thread: Military told not to read Obama news

    A veteran member of the U.S. Army Band said he is facing retribution and punishment from the military for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his car, reading books written by conservative authors like Mark Levin and David Limbaugh, and serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at his promotion party.

    Master Sgt. Nathan Sommers, a 25-year Army veteran and conservative Christian based at Fort Myer in Washington, believes his outspoken opposition to gay marriage prompted higher-ups to take a closer look at his beliefs. The recipient of an Army Commendation Medal and a soloist at the funeral of former First Lady Betty Ford, Sommers said his core beliefs are enough to mark a soldier for persecution in today’s military.

    “It seems like with the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – that the Christians have been the ones who’ve had to go underground and in the closet – for fear of retaliation and reprisals,” Sommers told Fox News. “Christians feel like they can’t be forthright with their faith. They have to hide.”

    Ret. Navy Commander John Bennett Wells is representing the master sergeant. He said there is no doubt in his mind that the U.S. military is discriminating against Christians – and specifically his client.

    “There’s no question about it,“ Wells told Fox News. “Because he is religious, because he feels that homosexual conduct is wrong for religious reasons, he is basically being persecuted.”
    Lt. Col. Justin Platt, an Army spokesman at the Pentagon released a statement to Fox News noting that the military branch cannot comment on ongoing investigations or administrative actions.

    “With respect to the political activities, soldiers are expected to carry out their obligations as citizens in accordance with applicable regulations,” Platt said.

    Army documents obtained by Fox News indicate Sommers was told that his actions bordered on being disrespectful to President Obama and the “slightest inference of disrespect towards superiors can have a demoralizing effect on the unit.”

    “You should strive to express your opinion while being aware of the overall ramifications of your statements,” the Army noted.
    This is a bunch of fabricated crap.

    The answer is so simple... Romans 1:21-32[/CENTER]

    21 For although they (Americans) knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen. 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. 28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

    The world will be in such CHAOS that there will be no legacy, pathetic or otherwise to leave to any children, for even the children will be gone.

    (Matthew 24:21-22)

    "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake (Israel) those days shall be shortened."

    Ahhhh, brother you hit this right on the nail head, they are not in control now since they let God be taken out of the schools etc God have gave them over so now the unseen enemy is in control now to do his bidding. Oh boy come Lord Jesus, come but their are now more work to do to get more people believe.

    it's not completely fabricated...he just tried to turn it into a religion issue when it was not...imagine that...

    Master Sgt. Nathan Sommers, a 25-year Army veteran and U.S. Army Band member, claims he is being punished for his Christian beliefs. According to Army documents, Sommers was told by the U.S. Army to remove some anti-Obama bumper stickers from his privately-owned car last April. The bumper stickers included one-liners such as: “Political Dissent is NOT Racism,” “NOBAMA” and “The Road to Bankruptcy is Paved with Ass-Fault."

    In an interview with Fox News, Sommers tried to link the banning of his non-religious political bumper stickers to his being persecuted as a Christian.

    “It seems like with the repeal of 'Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell' that the Christians have been the ones who’ve had to go underground and in the closet for fear of retaliation and reprisals. Christians feel like they can’t be forthright with their faith. They have to hide," claimed Sommers .

    “He’s allowed to have those bumper stickers on his car,” said Ret. Navy Commander John Bennett Wells, who is Sommers' lawyer. “The DoD regulation allows it. There was nothing obscene about it.”

    However, the U.S. Military did not claim the bumper stickers were "obscene."

    Sommers also says that the U.S. Army banned him from reading books, while in uniform, by right wing personalities such as Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and David Limbaugh.

    Apparently that persecution was so bad that Sommers was promoted by the U.S. Army in September 2012 to the rank of Master Sergeant. After being promoted, Sommers took part in another protest, this time against gay marriage.

    “I was inspired by Gov. Huckabee’s [Chick-fil-A] appreciation day,” Sommers told Fox News. “And since I wasn’t able to participate in the event, I decided to serve Chick-fil-A at my promotion party.”

    “My family likes Chick-fil-A and we like what they stand for. I can make a statement and at least express a religious point of view at my promotion party, theoretically without any fear of reprisal.”

    Sommers tweeted about the party on Twitter, but did not include any religious statements: “In honor of DADT repeal, and Obama/Holder’s refusal to enforce DOMA act, I’m serving Chick-fil-A at my MSG promo reception for Army today.”

    “@Marklevinshow ‘luv ya, Mark! Fellow Virginian & MSG, Army. Being promoted today, serving Chick-fil-A @ reception in honor of DADT repeal.”

    Sommers claims he was told by an openly-gay superior officer that unidentified members of the U.S. Army were offended by his statements on Twitter.

    Sommers was reprimanded, given a bad report and targeted by an investigation, which found he had tweeted in 2010: “Lordy, Lordy, it’s faggot Tuesday. The lefty loons and Obamabots are out in full force."

    Sommers admits the retweet was bad judgment, but claims homosexual soldiers are “attempting to dig up any negative information they could in order to silence me or ruin my career.”

    “My point is everybody has a right,” said Sommers. “Christians also have a right to express their points of view and that’s what’s being squelched here. There is no tolerance or dissent from the military’s point of view.”

    “Ironically, the liberals are preaching tolerance. They are saying, ‘We can tolerate you.’ But if you have a certain belief that doesn’t align with what the military wants you to believe, particularly religious beliefs, you’re no longer welcome in the U.S. military.”

    However, Sommers' political attacks against gays and Obama have not cited Jesus Christ or Christianity.

    Wells said Sommers is going to file a federal lawsuit over the alleged discrimination.
