In the mindset of Christians and non-Christians alike, there is a strong tendency to disassociate with reality when it comes to evil. This “disassociation” is really a compromise of beliefs to become “tolerant”. Satan uses this tool (rationalization) to his benefit; and it works extremely well. For instance, this is where we get the following hogwash from reputed Christians: (from the post “Lukewarm and the new (c)hristians“)
- 74% of American (c)hristians either strongly agreed or agreed in some manner that “…Satan is not a living being but is a symbol of evil…”
- Despite Wicca being described as “an organized form of witchcraft” in the survey, 40% of American (c)hristians said they could not form an opinion on it
Editorial: Air Force Witchcraft (Political Correctness casts a spell on the Armed Forces)
The U.S. military’s success in Pakistan this week proved the importance of maintaining a team focused on accomplishing dangerous missions. Others on the left prefer to look upon the armed forces as a playground to experiment with fringe ideas. Take the Air Force Academy which reportedly held a ceremony on Tuesday to dedicate a pile of rocks in the academy’s “worship area for followers of Earth-centered religions.”
This is a space cadets can use to perform rituals if they happen to be witches, warlocks and tree-worshipers. Overlooking the visitor center, the stone circle is designed for the benefit of a handful of those claiming to be Wiccans or Druids.
In a February 2010 article published on the academy’s website, the superintendent explained the pagan altar was required by regulations. “The United States Air Force remains neutral regarding religious beliefs and will not officially endorse nor disapprove any faith belief or absence of belief,” wrote Lt. Gen. Mike C. Gould.
[My comment] – Maybe the General is not familiar with the oath of enlistment into the Armed Forces which includes these words: (ref: Army website)
“I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”
Or these words from the oath of Officers in the Armed Forces:
“…I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.”
Continuing on in the story, “The Earth-centered spirituality group that meets at the Air Force Academy falls within the definition of religion as defined in the United States Air Force Instruction 36-2706.”
All of the actual Wiccans and Druids died out hundreds of years ago. The religions of the barbaric tribes of Europe faded away as the Roman conquest brought civilization to the region. Teachings once handed down by oral tradition were entirely forgotten over time. Around the 1950s, fringe leftists enamored by the concept of worshipping the Earth adopted the ancient labels and pretended to follow the old ways. They just left out the inconvenient bits, like human sacrifice. “They have likenesses of immense size, the limbs of which are composed of wicker, that they fill with living men,” wrote Julius Caesar, describing a Druid ceremony. “After these are set on fire, the men inside perish in the flames.”
To ensure no modern-day Druid misses out on important ceremonies, the Air Force maintains a multifaith calendar. Last year, “Lammas” fell on August 8. “This is one of the eight major High Days of the Druid and Wiccan calendar,” the document noted. “High Day observances include evening prayer vigils and ritual dances. Wiccans and Druids (any Neo Pagans) on evening work shifts may request time off for High Day observances.”
Even more surprising to a (c)hristian would come the following revelation: That this is being set up by the Chaplain’s on the base, at a site overlooking the base Chapel. In the Air Force, all faith’s worship in the same location, so you will have Jew’s, Catholics and Protestant’s share the same building. Add to that Satan now.
From the Air Force website: (link here, archived here)
“The Air Force Academy chapel will add a worship area for followers of Earth-centered religions during a dedication ceremony, which is tentatively scheduled to be held at the circle March 10.”
“The circle, located atop the hill overlooking the Cadet Chapel and Visitor Center, will be the latest addition to a collection of worship areas that includes Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist sacred spaces.”
“Every servicemember is charged with defending freedom for all Americans, and that includes freedom to practice our religion of choice or, for that matter, not to practice any faith at all,” said Chaplain (Lt. Col.) William Ziegler, Cadet Wing chaplain. “Being in the military isn’t just a job — it’s a calling. We all take an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and that means we’ve all sworn to protect one another’s religious liberties. We all put on our uniforms the same way; we’re all Airmen first.”
Sorry sir, but you are in a unique position, that of a leader of either the Christian or Jewish or Muslim faith on base. If you think you are an Airman first, then there is a special judgement awaiting you. I understand that until this was presented you may have been successfully walking the razors’s edge of serving God and Mammon, but it clearly isn’t that way now.
As a final note, I contacted the chaplain on the base I work at as a contractor, and asked him a theoretical question:
“If I wanted to set up a satanic ceremony to take place in the base chapel, would you be able to help me?” He replied with enthusiasm that yes, indeed, the CHAPLAIN’s on base would be very happy to accomodate Satanic ceremonies in the base chapel.
I suppose that’s okay for them, but when I brought this up with several professed Christian’s on base, they sure didn’t know about it. And maybe you didn’t, either.
But now you do.
“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.” –1 John 2:18-19
