Pentagon Removes Mention Of God From Air Force Tribute Video

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1thcpV1YzA?feature=player_embedded&w=640&h=360]

I withheld this video until Sunday, but an Air Force video saluting first sergeants was ordered removed by the Pentagon because it mentions the word “God,” which top military brass fears may insult Atheists or Muslims.

The video was based on the famous “So God made a farmer” commentary written and narrated by the late radio broadcaster Paul Harvey. The first sergeant tribute was created by a Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst chaplain as a poem, which was later made into a video titled, “So God created a First Sergeant.” The Chief of the Air Force News Service Division wrote in the email that Fox News obtained:

Proliferation of religion is not allowed in the Air Force or military. How would an Agnostic, Atheist or Muslim serving in the military take this video? I would not recommend using this at all.

Enough of the story background now, this is simply unbelievable. As a former soldier, myself, I have witnessed the importance of God in the American military. God is not only an important source of strength, but the U.S. military is probably the most “productively” progressive institutions in our nation, which recognizes and discriminates against no race, nationality, or creed. The idea that we are all God’s children and equal in His eyes, an American idea, cannot be removed from any discussion as to how and why the military has enjoyed such truly equal conditions.

This morning I released an appropriate article on the Gallup survey, which is backed up by Pew and others, that found an overwhelming majority of Americans believe that the proliferation of religion would result in a better society. And from my research in “Our Virtuous Republic” I can wholeheartedly tell you that 75% of Americans are absolutely right.

The vast amount of empirical data and evidence from studies from the American Psychiatric Association, Gallup well-being measurements from the World Poll and other Gallup surveys, Pew Research, and so on, all conclude religious observation is an essential element to human happiness.

I have proven unequivocally that the backward stigma attached to religion by academics, perpetuated in the media through pop culture, and practiced by politicians is both intentional and patently false.

From Cover of “Our Virtuous Republic” – Take a good look at the symbol. which obviously, most of the signers of the Declaration would easily recognize. The “compass” represents “reason” – the equal-sided square represents “virtue” – Do you want to take a guess at what the big “G” in the center represents? Without the “G” the moral law of virtue, thus ultimately our ability to reason will collapse and vanish (for reference please see Rome).

Does anyone believe that a nation founded by religious refugees was not founded on Judeo-Christian principles and faith? The progressive interpretation of a “separation of church and state” is the single biggest hoax ever perpetuated on the American people regarding our national identity.

I am not an overly religious person, but I am extremely spiritual, and most of all my loyalties lay with the truth. Thus far, the big man has been the only consistent truth in human history. That is to say, an honest examination of human civilization reveals an underlaying pattern, which is indisputable to the “New Atheists” and others, and rest assure that our Founding Fathers certainly recognized it to be a “self-evident” truth.

God’s moral law of Nature is just that – God’s. Morality is not a manmade cultural artifact, or “delusional artifact of evolution and ancient superstitions” as the “New Atheists” believe. I put “New Atheists” in quotation because although they are deeming themselves “New” in reality, there is nothing new or progressive about them. They are as old as human civilization itself, and have always been the demoralizing agent of empires and civilizations, pretending to be victims simply fighting for their right to be recognized for their “legitimate” beliefs.

Of course, this is always nonsense. Tolerance is a one-way street in America today. It is reprehensible that the tyranny of a very small minority is allowed to continue to oppress others, while simultaneously degrading the strength of American society, thus our entire nation.
