Ending DADT Will Bring About The Rapture According To Lt. Gen. Boykin

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.

Via Right Wing Watch:

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.

    I was at the SLDN rally that helped end DADt A retired general told me that there are still pockets of people in the mil who are opposed to women serving and blacks being integrated.

    i wonder if there is any way to dismiss this creep from the military and cancel his pension and health benefits.

    I’ll send a copy of the article to my senators.

      If I recall, The penalties under the UCMJ (I’m not positive, I’m no lawyer.) provide fairly strict punishments for things like this.

      Correction: Found what may be the pertinent regulation:

      3-171. Soldiers are prohibited from the following actions in support of extremist organizations or activities. Penalties for violations of these prohibitions include the full range of statutory and regulatory sanctions, both criminal (UCMJ), and administrative:

      Participating in public demonstrations or rallies.
      Attending a meeting or activity with the knowledge that the meeting or activity involves an extremist cause.
      Fund-raising activities.
      Recruiting or training members.
      Creating, organizing or leading such an organization or activity.
      Distributing literature that supports extremist causes.

      Grrr didn’t come out quite right. There wer a couple before it.

      3-169. Participation in extremist organizations and activities by Army personnel is inconsistent with the responsibilities of military service. The Army provides equal opportunity and treatment for all soldiers without regard to race, color, religion, gender, or national origin. Commanders enforce this Army policy because it is vitally important to unit cohesion and morale, and is essential to the Army’s ability to accomplish its mission.

      3-170. All soldiers must reject participation in extremist organizations and activities. Extremist organizations and activities are those that advocate racial, gender or ethnic hatred or intolerance. They are also those that advocate, create, or engage in illegal discrimination based on race, color, gender, religion, or national origin. Extremist organizations are also those that advocate the use of or use force or violence or unlawful means to deprive individuals of their rights under the United States Constitution or the laws of the United States or any state, by unlawful means.
