U.S. Navy Catering to Homosexuals Through Partner Benefits, While Air Force Creates Anti-Religious Environment
American Family Association Urges Americans to Tell US Military What They Think of ‘Policies’
The U.S. Navy is embarking on a new
mission—to train its personnel on how to provide military benefits to same-sex domestic
partners, paid by American taxpayers.
Likewise, the U.S. Air Force is stripping the
religious liberties of its airmen by giving in to repeated demands by the
Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers. The most recent evidence
is the removal of an inspirational painting from a base dining hall because it
features a reference to Matthew 5:9.
American Family Association is urging Americans to tell the Navy and the Air
Force to stop creating a hostile anti-religious environment throughout the U.S.
“We are asking Americans to contact
U.S. Navy administrators and let them know how we feel about the protection of
natural marriage,” said American Family Association president Tim Wildmon. “We also
want Americans to suggest to the Air Force that Secretary Michael
Donley be investigated for his anti-religious actions.”
According to a recent report, eligibility
requirements for Navy couples will change on August 31, 2013, and Navy staff
will be ready to talk about how to offer same-sex partners benefits that will
include Commissary and Exchange Privileges, access to Morale, Welfare
and Recreation (MWR), travel on Department of Defense aircraft, joint duty
assignment for dual-military partners, access to legal assistance and family
programs, leave of absences to attend partner emergencies, sexual assault
counseling, transportation services, and disability and death compensation.
Other evidence that shows the Air Force’s
creation of an anti-religious environment include:
- An Air
Force Base was ordered to remove a video tribute because it mentioned
the word “God.” Watch the video here.
- The Air
Force removed “Bible” from its list of items to be provided in Air
Force-approved lodging facilities. This will almost certainly result in
the eventual removal of Bibles themselves from Air Base hotels or any
hotel that does business with the Air Force.
- The Air
Force removed the word “God” from the logo of its Rapid Capabilities
Office after receiving a threatening letter from MAAF.
- The Air
Force Academy dropped its involvement with Operation Christmas
Child after a single complaint from an atheist group. The Air Force
apologized to the atheists and ordered chaplains to no longer use official
mail to promote the charity.
American Family Association also suggests that Americans contact their local
members of Congress to voice their concerns about recent actions by the U.S.
Navy and U.S. Air Force.
