Spiritual Rape and Treason

Sharing the Gospel is now akin to rape. Did you get that?  Sharing the Gospel is a version of spiritual rape, and, furthermore, doing so in the Armed Services is "treason," the penalty for which, of course, is death.  Or so an official consultant to the Pentagon, Mikey Weinstein, wrote at the Huffington Post.  Weinstein has been retained by the Pentagon to assist in preparing a policy on "religious toleration," and there appears to be no vile thing the poor man won't say about Christians.  You can read all about it here. You can also read there about how the American people are "dialing it down" as they acquiesce in their own government's widening assault on Christians and Chrisitianty.  Not to see a pattern here is, I would suggest, either naive, willful, or stupid.  Evil enters the world in more ways than one.      

If you think "evil" is too strong a diagnosis of what Weinstein brings to the Pentagon table, here is a sample, in Weinstein's own words, of the mentaility of someone now advising our government on "religious tolerance:"

"If these fundamentalist Christian monsters of human degradation … and tyranny cannot broker or barter your acceptance of their putrid theology, then they crave for your universal silence in the face of their rapacious reign of theocratic terror. Indeed, they ceaselessly lust, ache, and pine for you to do absolutely nothing to thwart their oppression. Comply, my friends, and you become as monstrously savage as are they. I beg you, do not feed these hideous monsters with your stoic lethargy, callousness and neutrality. Do not lubricate the path of their racism, bigotry, and prejudice. Doing so directly threatens the national security of our beautiful nation."  (Mikey Weinstein)

God help us.
