From The Man That Brought You The Branch Davidian Raid and The "Real" Blackhawk Down....
Retired General Jerry Boykin is opposed to civil rights for American Muslims, hates President Barack Obama, and is a rigid and uncompromising supporter of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. So, it should not be surprised that this Christian theocrat attended Rick Perry’s under attended Prayer Rally where, among other things, they prayed for rain.
Texas caught fire not long after that. Again.
Well, in an interview with Janet Parshall, Boykin believes that there is ongoing persecution of Christian soldiers (though he provides about as much proof of this as Texas has gotten in rain this last week), and argued that ending DADT was going to lead to the End Times and the Rapture.
Jesus tells us in Luke 21 that before all the signs of His return ultimately are completed that they will take us before kings and rulers and persecute us in His name. And that is, just scripture, that’s prophesy, and I think we’re seeing that persecution now of Christians, particularly of Christians in uniform, Christians that are prominent Christians, Christians that are in the public eye. That persecution is going to increase as we come closer to the time of Jesus’ return.
Boykin was reprimanded after he delivered a speech about how he was part of an “army of God” fighting “Satan” while in uniform. He also said that the Muslim warlords that he fought worshiped idols. It is against regulation for anyone in the military to give speeches outside the purview of the military while in uniform.
It should not be surprising that Boykin, who is out of step with today’s military, would continue to claim that Christians are being persecuted because they cannot impose a theocratic state in the US.
