Evangelical Christianity, Catholicism Labeled ‘Extremist’ in Army Presentation. (Cross Posted from The Christian Post)
The white man is the oppressor, and if you don’t agree with this “course of study” you’re an educated bigot; is what I and others were told while in the Army’s EO school…
NO KIDDING – in an accredited course in sociology, this is what really is disturbing to me. I personally surpassed many of the other soldiers in the course, as I had once worked in “Street Ministry” while in Baltimore City. The instructors thought I had earned a degree in sociology; so I do not post this article as a matter of having sour grapes, nor out of pride.
We were taught to celebrate our differences in creating a stronger bond in unit cohesion. That was the theory anyway, to build respect and bridges between different peoples by discussion and understanding and mutual respect, rather than deviseveness. Yet today I am afraid that politicians have turned peoples against one another, in a divisive power grab for personal gain. Men wanting to play God, and Lord political power over one another. I don’t believe the Nation’s founders ever intended, the Government dictates to the population in such a manner.
A public consciousness is what is needed again, what puritans once called “the fear of God”. A belief in “God as being Supreme”: not “State Supremacy” over individual freedoms, and responsibilities. As no one should be able to legislate what a free people think or feel. To do so would be tyranny, and death of the human spirit and the primary reason for the U.S. Revolutionary War.
General Douglas MacAuthor once said: “Pluralism is the Enemy, the longer it is allowed to exist, the bigger and bloodier wars it creates”. I’m afraid this is what is occurring in this Country today, as we once were bonded together by a common God, we are now separated by our differences, with no one to mend our wounds.
