IT'S NOT "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" ANYMORE
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
It is time to coin a new phrase. It ain't "political correctness" that plagues many leaders and decision makers any more. It is…… Political stupedness; Mental and moral insanity; Spiritual retardation! "Needing to be loved by all syndrome."
During the week of 9/11 it wasn't enough to remember the pain and horror of it all and the brave sacrifices by SO many. We had to have Political stupedness slip in again and again. We saw Lt. Gordon James Klingenschmitt enduring a court marshal and conviction this week for allegedly disobeying his commanding officer by wearing his uniform while saying a prayer "in Jesus name." Never mind, according to his statement to WND that he had prior written permission to wear his uniform if it was a religious observance. Apparently, prayers were not a religious observance. They are just a rude annoyance!
He and other Chaplains have been reacting in horror for sometime about different branches of the military demanding "non sectarian prayers." The Toledo Blade reports that 65 Pastors have joined a class action lawsuit alleging religious discrimination by the Navy. Thank goodness they are standing up. We ALL must stand on this one!
Persecuting our Chaplains is just one stupid betrayal where the "political correct" poison skews all reason and common sense, but the same "polite" mentality even invades the rules taking out insurgents.
You all had to have heard the news yesterday about our military wanting to bomb a group of more than 100 Taliban insurgents in southern Afghanistan who were on the grounds of a cemetery. They wanted an unmanned Predator drone to bomb these bad guys but found that under rules of battlefield engagement, attacks on cemeteries were bared. Let me get this right! Our guys are getting tortured and killed on a regular basis by these very bad guys but we are to observe a politically insane rule and let them walk only to kill and torture more of our troops and civilians again and again. It is so much more moral and reflective of American values to assign squad after squad to go on little raids in remote areas and get picked off, one by one or 20 by 20. Who cares about our murdered troops and their surviving family members?
The most important value in a time of world war and threat is to be the poster child for Roberts book of Orders and Politeness, not keep our troops alive; not find, kill and destroy the enemy when we have the chance of the century; not have Chaplains capable of praying in the name of Jesus who most of our troops worship. Forget what our troops need! It is more important what the 1% whiner, God hater and America hater crowd needs. Everyone else, go back in your closet or stay under the bed.
Those memorial crosses must come down, says 1%. Those prayers must be "non sectarian" says 1% or my unbelief will be offended! Those bombs must not kill the bad guys at a funeral, says the 1% of the high up slime making retarded decisions in the military. You see…..its much better that our troops die bit by bit than to stop it when given the golden chance!
As I said, "political correctness" doesn't cut it anymore. It is "political stupidness" "cowardness and obsession with girlie girl rules" "moral insanity." If anyone is interested in staying alive and actually winning this war inside our country and outside we must do the following now!
