Marine Court-Martialed for Refusing to Remove Bible Verse

It’s pretty damn sad that a woman defending my First Amendment rights cannot have the same privileges that I enjoy.

I have a Bible verse on my computer at work – I’ve had it for many years.  Why?  Because it works!  No, better yet, because God says so.

22 Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.    Colossians 3:22-25

We don’t know the whole story here and Christians should be willing to bear an offense.  Christ remained largely silent during his trials.

What’s sad here is the fact that this is an issue.  Perhaps the Marine Corps has rules against such things, in which case she should comply or leave.  I’m not exactly sure how a Christian can serve in the armed forces anymore.

America seems to be in a real hurry to jettison every vestige of Christianity and I think most of us understand that this will not end well.  Whether we believe it or not, God has been very gracious to this nation and throwing Him overboard will play out exactly as it has in the Old Testament regarding Israel. 

The Lord is not to be messed around with.  He tends to mess back.

…for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and
keep my commandments. Exodus 20 verses 5b and 6
