Earlier this month the U.S. Army ordered a recruiting station to remove a sign that mentioned “God and country,” and while autotheists jumped on this story as an example of the U.S. promoting God in the armed forces my own experience in the Army shows the DOD actually evangelizes for Islam and terrorists.
Fox News reported on an Army recruiting unit using a sign with the words, “On a mission for both God and country,” as a recruitment tool. Autotheists predictably insisted the sign violated the Constitution (it did not) and the Army quickly bowed to their masters.
Ironically, if you go to the official U.S. Army Institute of Heraldry website and search for “God” on the “Mottos” page, you’ll find at least five U.S. Army units that have “God” and “Country” as part of their official mottos. Do other searches for “God,” “Almighty,” and so forth. You’ll be surprised what you find. And do it quickly before the autotheists have the government further enforce their theocracy by removing them.
Christianity is part of the heritage of the United States of America. You don’t have to like it or even be a Christian but it doesn’t change the truth. This truth also doesn’t mean the armed forces are evangelizing for Christianity when they reference God or Christianity—despite what autotheists claim. In fact, I can make a case from my own time in the Army that the armed forces do more to evangelize for Islam and terrorists.
If any of my language seems hyperbolic just remember this comes in response to the autotheists who have waged their anti-Christian jihad for many years now. They have set the tone for how this “debate” goes.
I mobilized for deployment to Iraq in 2009 at Fort Bliss, TX. However, a large portion of Fort Bliss extends north into New Mexico, and my unit spent most of its time there at a training site known as Camp McGregor. I photographed the below image on the door of the Post Office at McGregor. You can verify this was taken at McGregor by looking at the ride side of the photo and noticing the yellow building reflected in the glass. Do a web search for “Camp McGregor” and you will find photographs that show this same distinctive building.
The sign, of course, implies that Americans are terrorists whom Indians have been fighting since Columbus arrived in the New World.
This was an outrage—a giant insult to troops who were about to deploy to different parts of the world and risk being murdered by actual terrorists. But it was no surprise. After all, the U.S. government hates its own troops unless they are sodomites, Muslims, or autotheists. Conversely, the U.S. government loves terrorists. People have known this for quite some time but no one at the highest levels of power much cares.
So the U.S. Army evangelizes for terrorists. In fact, you could argue this sign serves to indoctrinate U.S. troops into thinking they are the terrorists.
Then there was the Islamic prayer rug given to me as an official act of the Department of Defense unit I served with in Iraq. The below photograph shows the rug was inscribed with my name. The unit presented it to me near the end of my tour. I guess it was the DOD way of saying thank you for being part of the U.S. jihad that established officially Islamic theocracies throughout the globe even as it helped wipe out Christianity.
I also received the USF-I commander’s coin (see below photograph) from General Raymond Odierno while in Iraq. General Odierno was the commander of United States Forces-Iraq at the time (also known as Multi-National Force Iraq). He currently is the Army Chief of Staff. He personally presented each member of my unit with the USF-I coin.
Notice the coin contains an image of the Mesopotamian god, Lamassu. Why is the DOD promoting this ancient Middle Eastern god and associated religion to its troops? Why is it evangelizing for this religion through the depiction of this god on the coin?
The U.S. Army also evangelizes for Muslims by teaching its troops how to be submissive to Islam. For instance, during our mobilization training we were officially taught Arabic phrases by Arabic-speaking soldiers. (The soldiers likely were all Muslims since I saw prayer rugs in the classroom where they taught us. I also saw at least one of the soldiers using one of them.)
The Arabic greeting the U.S. Army taught us was, As-salamu alaykum (“Peace be with you”) and our response to that greeting was to be, Wa alaikum assalam (“And upon you be peace”). (See below image of the official Army handout given to us.) These are not secular greetings. They actually are very specific to Islam. What one is saying when he says, As-salamu alaykum, is that he wishes Allah’s peace upon he whom he is greeting. (And, no, Allah and God are not the same.)
There is absolutely no reason for the Army to have instructed its soldiers to use these phrases. I purchased, Instructions for American Servicemen in Iraq during World War II, before I deployed. The book is largely “a facsimile of a ‘pocket guide’ prepared by the Special Service Division of the Army Service Forces, United States Army in 1943” (per the front matter). Among the great deal of still useful information in the book is a section on “Greetings and General Phrases” (p. 34) The Arabic for “good day” is, saBAHh il-KHAYR. The Arabic for “good evening” is ma-sal KHAYR.
So why didn’t the Army teach us these secular greetings? Apparently it wants to indoctrinate its troops into Islam; make them submissive to it.
The next President of the United States should be required to reverse the gains autotheists have made in the U.S. government and armed forces. The theocracy they have established should be dismantled and the anti-Christian jihad they’ve been leading for well over a decade stopped. They need to be purged from the DOD ranks, with more than “a half a dozen court-martials,” and other prosecutions, taking place for their evangelization.
On a final note, there actually is a point of commonality I have with those who object to the “for both God and country” recruiting sign: it truly is inappropriate for the modern U.S. armed forces. After all, we don’t fight for either of those things any longer. Instead we fight for Islam, terrorists, autotheists, and other downright evil. So I’m not that upset over its removal. After all, it was false advertising.
