Let's inculcate the military!

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]sunfell)

This Evangelism and Discipleship page is a good look at how our military is being inculcated into religious conformity.

There's a quicktime video that loads and plays upon accessing the site.

Military Ministry’s first strategic objective is to Evangelize and Disciple All Enlisted Members of the US Military [emphasis theirs]. We seek to provide every uniformed son and daughter of America with an anchor for the soul through Jesus Christ. This process begins at the recruit training bases…boot camps…where new troops are transformed physically, mentally, and ideally… spiritually.

We seek to not only impact the Armed Forces in this way, but to also transform our entire nation as we build values, character and Christian faith into these dear ones who serve us at home and abroad.[emphasis mine]


Reread that last bit. "Onward Christian Soldiers" has a sinister new sound to it now. But now, it's nonbelievers they are hoping to march off to war against.

This is interesting... and also chilling:

Fast Facts

* This year, more than 400,000 young Americans will begin their military service in basic trainings centers.

* Ninety percent of enlisted recruits are aged 17 to 24 – challenging Military Ministry to remain relevant and effective.

* Each Sunday of the year, Military Ministry Gateway staff and volunteers conduct evangelistic and discipleship classes attended by more than 2500 enlisted trainees.

* These workers invest about 130,000 hours of their time in the US military’s newest generation each year.

* Every week, an average of 300 enlistees indicate decisions for Christ at these basic training locations:

o Ft Jackson, South Carolina (largest Army Basic Training)
o Great Lakes Naval Training Center, Chicago, Illinois (Navy Basic Training)
o Lackland AFB, San Antonio, Texas (Air Force Basic Training)
o Parris Island, South Carolina (Marine Consolidate Recruiting Depot)

* In addition, we run programs at the following advanced training centers:
o Ft Eustis, Virginia (Army Transportation Command)
o Defense Language Institute, Monterey, California (Military Language Schools)
o Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA

* We’ve recently launched a medical ministry in San Antonio to serve the returning wounded from Iraq and Afghanistan.


These are your kids folks. This is our military being pestered and harried by ministeries like this. They don't like to take 'no' for an answer.
