Religion in U.S. Military Policy
The Family Research Council’s report notes that pressure to impose ’a secular, anti-religious culture’ has intensified over the last six years.
WASHINGTON — The Family Research Council has said that there is a “growing hostility” to religion in the U.S. armed forces, including “concerted efforts to scrub the military of religious expression.”
“The climate of intimidation that began in the Air Force is bleeding over into every branch — leading even military chaplains to wonder about their security in referencing the Bible,” said Family Research Council’s president, Tony Perkins, July 9.
The D.C.-based Christian-advocacy organization’s report, “A Clear and Present Danger: The Threat to Religious Liberty in the Military,” documents what Perkins called a “wave of hostility toward religious expression in the military.”
The report said that pressures to impose “a secular, anti-religious culture” on the U.S. military have “intensified tremendously” under President Barack Obama, noting numerous incidents of policy restricting Christian expression.
I’ll bet there isn’t any pressure exerted on Muslim chaplins.
