What Country Am I Living In? | WorldNetDaily

    WorldNetDaily: While the Pentagon has backed off its threat to court-martial military personnel for “proselytizing,” the handwriting is so clearly on the wall. It took the filing of a Freedom of Information Act request by Alliance Defending Freedom for all Defense Department statements on the issue to force that action. “Members of our military should not be denied the very freedoms they fight to defend.

Pentagon Changes Mind, Says Soldiers May Share Faith

    The New American: The outcry from chaplains and religious leaders over Weinstein’s rhetoric prompted the Defense Department to issue its updated statement backing down from implying that service members might be targeted for sharing their faith. According to Charisma News, the clarification came after the conservative legal advocacy group Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking a clarification from the Defense Department on the issue. “Members of our military should not be denied the very freedoms they fight to defend,” explained ADF Legal Counsel Joseph La Rue. “Freedom of religion and speech are paramount among those freedoms.”
