More Persecution of Christians

Over there at World View Magazine, Veith is just flabbergasted to find that anyone in in the House of Representatives would object to Fundagelicals pushing Jesus on Air Force cadets (i.e. forcing cadets to watch Mel's Passion, telling cadets who were not Christians that they were going straight to hell, penalizing Jews who attend synagogue on Saturday, cracking anti-Semitic "jokes" meant to make it clear that everyone needs to get on "Team Jesus.")

But of course he need not have worried. The Republicans declined to censure, and one fine Representative, John Hostettler (R-IN), (Ah! There's Indiana again! What a charming state!) commented, "Democrats can't help themselves when it comes to denigrating and demonizing Christians."


Be sure you read the comments, too, which include this fine bit:

Picture if you will, a country on a small blue planet. This country is at war with terrorists of the Islamic variety. It's future military leaders are being told the truth of Christ, by chaplains seeking to save their souls, in the event they should die in future battles. All is as it should be, or is it? What if, on this tiny blue planet, there were also agents of the evil one, who wants to see souls damned to Hell, working to thwart these efforts. Men in positions of power, using endless supplies of money from evil ventures like the abortion lobby, to remove all public reference to a Savior for the masses. Let's see how the battle progresses. Let's pay a visit to the tiny blue planet, 3rd from the sun, in this distant part of the Twilight Zone.

Yes, indeed.
