Military bars troops from attending Vacation Bible school honor

Interesting. I think the military is right.

Bible Baptist Church in Carthage, Missouri is a small country church bursting with American pride. Old Glory is posted in the sanctuary. And every morning at summer youth camp, the teenagers pledge allegiance and sing the national anthem.

Patriotic holidays are big doings at Bible Baptist. On Memorial Day, the church ladies put out quite a spread – fried chicken, potato salad. Veterans would wear their uniforms and the preacher would salute them during the morning worship service.

Having accepted Jesus as my

Having accepted Jesus as my savior, It seems to me that this church is not doing what Jesus has called them to do. I was a member of a Baptist church and have gotten out. The Church has been hijacked just like every other institution in this nation. The pastor should be teaching the Christian theory of a just war, salvation etc. Basically everything Jesus taught. It really gets me upset to see this flag waving stuff. Don't get me wrong I love this nation. But churches who do this need to be avoided.

A great post and a good lesson for the kids.

You can't be a good drone-like soldier for the state if you have Jesus in your heart, or a conscience. Hopefully they will pick a different career when they grow up.

The most amusing part of the article in my opinion was how the military policy doesn't allow them to, or even appear to promote a private entity such as a corporation. Immediately, Big Oil, Big Banks, Monsanto and defense contractors came to mind.
