This Is Just Lovely
Some of our military leaders admit they don't care much for the US:
A military watchdog group is asking the Defense Department to investigate whether seven Army and Air Force officers violated regulations by appearing in uniform in a promotional video for an evangelical Christian organization.
In the video, much of which was filmed inside the Pentagon, four generals and three colonels praise the Christian Embassy, a group that evangelizes among military leaders, politicians and diplomats in Washington. Some of the officers describe their efforts to spread their faith within the military.
"I found a wonderful opportunity as a director on the joint staff, as I meet the people that come into my directorate," Air Force Maj. Gen. Jack J. Catton Jr. says in the video. "And I tell them right up front who Jack Catton is, and I start with the fact that I'm an old-fashioned American, and my first priority is my faith in God, then my family and then country. I share my faith because it describes who I am." [Emphasis added.]
Wow. That sure makes me feel secure. A Major General admits that, to him, his country comes third. I guess that if Maj. Gen. Catton and the others decide the US is insufficiently, let's face it, Christian he'll turn his guns and bombs on American citizens.
Army Brig. Gen. Bob Casen refers in the video to the Christian Embassy's special efforts to reach admirals and generals through Flag Fellowship groups. Whenever he sees another fellowship member, he says, "I immediately feel like I am being held accountable, because we are the aroma of Jesus Christ."
It looks like there are a lot of Jerry Boykins running around the Pentagon.
Can you say "Courts Martial"? I knew you could.
