Do people seriously think websites are specifically blocked on a site by site basis? The government uses filters to block. So, obviously, something on the SBC site triggered the block. I've had parts of snopes.com blocked on govt websites.
Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.
Most disturbing to him (the Army officer) was the fact that the military labeled his personal religious faith as ‘hostile’ to the U.S. Army,” AFA spokesman Randy Sharp told Fox News.
Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance, told Fox News that Southern Baptist chaplains on military bases around the world have been unable to access the website.
Richard Land, president of the SBC’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission denounced the censorship and demanded that Southern Baptist soldiers be provided access to the site.
Land said the military censorship was part of a “disturbing trend.”
“With Internet technology constantly evolving, the Department is working to ensure that service members have access to an open Internet while preserving information and operational security,” he said.
Religious liberty groups were outraged by the block and called for an immediate investigation
“This is another example of the growing hostility toward evangelical Christians in the armed forces,” Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, executive vice president of the Family Research Council told Fox News. “Ironically, the very people who are sworn to support and defend the rights provided in the U.S. Constitution are being denied the right to exercise those rights individually."
The American Family Association feared it was further evidence of what they called religious hostility within the Pentagon.
“This is one more example of the Defense Department leadership allowing hostility towards faith and religious freedom in our military,” Sharp told Fox News. “The growing list of offenses is overwhelming and Secretary Chuck Hagel should no longer ignore it.”
In recent days, the Army has come under fire after an officer sent an email to subordinates labeling the AFA and the Family Research Council as “domestic hate groups.”
In another incident a group of Army Reservists were told that Evangelical Christians and Catholics are examples of religious extremists.....snip~
I guess the AFA and ALL those Religious groups see this as an issue then made it an issue.....along with that service member. Do you think they have an issue? Why did they press on after the explanation of.....it wasn't being blocked? Do you think it could have to do with all those Chaplains?
The AFA thinks no permits should be given for any mosques anywhere in America:
No more mosques, period - RIGHTLYCONCERNED.COM
Homosexuals caused the Holocaust:Muslims “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions...It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny...”
Because of this subversive ideology, Muslims cannot claim religious freedom protections under the First Amendment. They are currently using First Amendment freedoms to make plans to destroy the First Amendment altogether. There is no such thing as freedom of religion in Islam, and it is sheer and utter folly for Americans to delude themselves into thinking otherwise.
Homosexuality, Hitler and 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' - RIGHTLYCONCERNED.COM
Barack Obama is the AntichristHomosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews. Gays in the military is an experiment that has been tried and found disastrously and tragically wanting. Maybe it's time for Congress to learn a lesson from history.

What about the Family Resarch Council and a Retired Lt General speaking out? Also I am sure they have Extreme membership in their ranks. What would that have to do with the rest of the AFA?
I am going to stick my neck out here and say this is another Fauxrage. I bet a coumputer went down or something. Govt computers block from all kidna sites. I cant even look up nutritional information for beer on mine.
God Bless the Marine Corps.
