Do we need to reevaluate our patriotism?

Here’s a story about a young lady in the Marine Corps: Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling court-martialed for displaying a Bible verse

Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling

Christians have long been among the most staunch of American patriots, supporting and populating the ranks of our courageous military.

But there’s a new commander in chief. And under his leadership, the U.S. military appears to be being systematically and vigorously purged of Christian influence.

I would not willingly send a son or daughter of mine into today’s U.S. military. Our military exists to defend our borders and the constitutional freedoms that we hold dear.

The marine was court-martialed for refusing to obey a direct order from a superior officer (who demanded that she take down the Bible verse). Our service men and women are only duty-bound to obey LAWFUL direct orders. This was an unlawful order, as it violates the supreme law of the land, the constitution, which the marine was sworn to defend.
