Perkins cited a list of recent events that he says highlight the Obama Administration’s growing hostility towards Christians in the military, saying, “We must stop anti-Christian actions like these: January 2010 – Department of Defense orders removal of tiny Bible references on military scopes and gunsights. June 2011 – The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burials at National Cemetery. August 2011 – The Air Force stops teaching the Just War theory because it is based on a philosophy of St. Augustine.”

Perkins continues: September 2011 – Air Force Chief of Staff prohibits commanders from notifying airmen of religious programs. September 2011 – The Army issues Walter Reed Medical Center guidelines stipulating that no religious items such as Bibles, reading materials and/or tracts are to be given to the wounded. November 2011 – The Air Force Academy rescinds support for Operation Christmas Child because it is run by Christians. November 2011 – The Air Force Academy pays $80,000 for a Stonehenge-type worship center for pagans, druids, and witches.

Perkins’ list continues: February 2012 – The U.S. Military Academy at West Point disinvites retired three-star Army general and decorated war hero William "Jerry" Boykin, because he is an outspoken Christian . February 2012 – The Army orders Catholic chaplains not to read archbishop's letter to soldiers . May 2012 – The Obama Administration opposes legislation to protect the rights of conscience for military chaplains who do not wish to perform same-sex marriages.

June 2012 – Obama administration revokes the long- standing U.S. policy of allowing military service emblems to be placed on military Bibles . January 2013 – Obama announces the opposition to a provision in the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act protecting the rights of conscience for military chaplains.

April 2013 – In U.S. Army Reserve training about Equal Opportunity laws, "Evangelical Christianity" and "Catholicism" along with the terrorist organizations Al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas as examples of "religious extremism," according to a complaint by the Archdiocese for the Military Services and the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, reported the Christian Post. “Listed alongside 'extremist' groups and organizations like the Klu Klux Klan, the U.S. Army slideshow has 'Evangelical Christianity' as the first bullet, followed by the Muslim Brotherhood, Ultra-Orthodox Judaism and farther down on the slide, Catholicism.”

According to the training documents, "Extremism is a complex phenomenon" that is present in every religion due to "some followers that believe that their beliefs, customs and traditions are the only 'right way' and that all others are practicing their faith the 'wrong way,' seeing and believing that their faith/religion superior to all others. ”

"Men and women of faith who have served the Army faithfully for centuries shouldn't be likened to those who have regularly threatened the peace and security of the United States," says retired Col. Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. He says he was alerted to the training material by a concerned soldier .

"The archdiocese is astounded that Catholics were listed alongside groups that are, by their very mission and nature, violent and extremist," the Archdiocese for the Military Services said in a statement, as reported by World Magazine. Roman Catholics make up 20 percent of active-duty members of the military, while other faith groups and denominations, such as Muslims, Buddhists and Southern Baptists, are less than 2 percent of the U.S. military.

What happens if Christians in uniform publicly express their deeply held convictions? Air National Guardsman Layne Wilson was informed he was being kicked out and his sick wife’s medical care would be cut off after he wrote a private letter to his superiors expressing his opposition to same-sex weddings in the West Point chapel. Wilson's superiors responded by rescinding his six-year contract with the Guard, then eliminated health coverage for his wife – who is suffering from stage four breast cancer. When his superiors’ actions were publicized, the measures were reversed, but a letter of reprimand remains in Wilson’s file, effectively ending any chances of future promotion and destroying his military career.

After publicly backing down, Layne's superiors continued apparent efforts to drive the 27-year veteran out of the service. Wilson’s commanding officers informed him they're opening a "security information file" based on his private Facebook postings and are "reviewing his security clearance." His attorney, John Wells, expected as much

. "Once the military puts a target on your back, they continue to push until they win or are told by a higher authority to stop," he writes. "It appears to be an attempt to force everyone to conform with the politically correct left-wing military the President is striving to create. Security clearances are a favorite target when trying to destroy a subordinate's career. ”
