    Can someone post the link to the "edict" as I can't seem to find anything that supports the assertions made in this article (as usual).

    Silence on GOD does not protect but adds to ignorance. It builds fear. It does not breed true brotherhood/sisterhood but something sinister. Evil often appears decent but it is still evil. If God abiding people cannot speak, share, discuss heart topics, what hope is there for us all?

    A popular tactic to spread evil is to silent the religious, avoid the religious, embarrass the religious. It was used in Jesus' time and it did not win. And it is men like the good Admiral that bring victory. Consequently, we are in a battle ground.

    What if Jesus was present today? Would we prevent Him from spreading the Good News? And if so, how?
    There is Hope on the physical battle field. There is Hope on the spiritual battle field. There is Hope, Faith, Love.

    Again...you are woefully ill informed. This policy is there to protect our service men and women from religious harassment. But I'm sure you think it would be ok if it were only there to stop Islam or Hindu.

    The Admiral is a man of honor and a national hero. We can all count on Emperor Obama to retaliate against this honorable man.

    This article praises a devoted Christian military officer. Clearly he is a fine person and dedicated professional as the previous comments have indicated. However, the claim in the article that "Emperor Obama's atheist edict" bans the sharing of faith by military personnel overstates the actual facts. A statement released May 2 by Defense Department spokesman, Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen, clarified the military's policy that "members of the military are free to share their faith as long as they don't harass others." There appears to be no edict from President Obama on this subject. We should consider the words of the DOD recognized source for facts about DOD policy. There are just too many wild speculations out in the blogosphere. Thus it seems that, only if you believe your religious faith compels you to try to convert others in a way people find harassing, would military personnel face court-martial, though such a thing has yet to happen.

    May God bless Admiral Lee, a true light in a broadening, deepening sea of darkness. How fast our once great nation is falling. We see at all levels the results of God having been removed from the classroom five decades ago. That was just the beginning. We will soon reap the harvest of the same happening not only in our military but in all facets of our day-to-day lives. I feel it is apparent that God has given us over fully to our own desires and lusts, and most of us know where that will eventually lead. In actuality, Mr. Obama and those who proudly follow and revere him are, I believe, but a pawns in the overall scheme of things.

    Thanks be to God for giving Admiral Lee the strength to speak out even at the risk of punishment by the State! May we all have the courage to love Jesus -- and our fellow man -- more than we fear the threats of worldly powers.

    In Christ,

    Clinton
