    Military told not to read Obama news

    Soldier Told Not to Read Levin, Limbaugh or Hannity in Uniform

    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.

    Just more proof in relation to the Signs of the End of the Age & This Last Generation. Christian persecution is just beginning. Because God's word & promises are absolute truth, we can expect all conditions to rapidly wax worse & worse.

    When the military can tell a soldier what he can and can not read, it shows how Obama thinks he is a king. I guess it won't be too long before the government comes to my door and tells me what I can write and read. I think I hear a knock on the door.

    Military personnel are supposed to reject the voices warning of tyranny.
    ...SCOTUS says we're right...You don't like it. I'm sorry you don't like it. I guess that's a problem for you. Some people don't like gays. Some don't like alcohol. Some don't like meat. ~michaelzwilliamson

  8. The military, by spewing the administrations' socialist tripe, has a demoralizing effect on all units in its control. I cannot believe our military has turned into a collection of subversive, pansy-assed cowards, using Obama and New World Order socialist mantra to brainwash even our military enlistees.

    What in the hell have our military forces turned into? What in the hell has the entire country turned into, in such a short time? I have no disrespect for those who honorably served and those who lost their lives to guarantee our freedom, but it seems our freedom has turned into a bastardized version of socialist, dictatorial tyranny, your choice of tyrants in history. And it invades every segment of our lives, military included.

    How in the hell could our commander-in-chief effectively turn America into an intellectually stunted, band of liberal morons in such a short time? Money. Lots and lots of money. What a pathetic legacy we are leaving our brainwashed children and grandchildren; a debt they will never be able to repay, and world chaos.

    And if the Obama administration doesn't like what I have to say, The First amendment is still there, along with 3 choices:

    1. Go pound sand.
    2. Get over it.
    3. Or both.

    America is dying right in front of your eyes and time is running out.


    The answer is so simple... Romans 1:21-32

    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."

  10. I guess that I'm next up for this kind of treatment. So be it. I am not an officer and never took an oath to support or defend the president. MSG Sommers didn't either. We took our oath to protect and defend the Constitution.

  11. As a service member since 1986 I have NEVER been told what I can and can not read. The military does not have an official position on this. Maybe it was just this individuals chain of command that was butt hurt because he doesn't think like they do. Everyone who works with me knows how I feel... as long as I don't campaign for any political candidate I am within my rights, in uniform or not.
