A reference to God that appears on the patch logo for the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office (RCO) has been removed. The patch logo was changed after a military atheist group, the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, protested the reference to God.
The patch had a saying on it in Latin, which is common for military patches, that translates as “Doing God’s Work with Other People’s Money.”
Sounds like the Obama Administration. President Obama said last week that Jesus would support taxing rich people. Liberals always claim that they are doing God’s work with other people’s money.
The saying has been changed to read “Doing Miracles with Other People’s Money.” Again, another liberal claim. Give them enough money, and they will do miracles with it.
But there is a more serious reason why God should be removed from the Air Force patch: Let the atheists own war. The way our government is using our military, it’s long overdue that God be taken out of the picture.
When we go to war, we bring our culture with us. That includes our religious beliefs. The war in Iraq has been a disaster.
What is going on in Afghanistan? Do we really know? Consider the following:
A US army officer has accused the American military of painting a misleading picture of progress in the war in Afghanistan. Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Davis turned whistleblower and broke ranks with the official portrayal of the Afghan war after he ‘witnessed the absence of success on virtually every level.’ How many more men must die in support of a mission that is not succeeding?’ Colonel Davis asked in an article titled ‘Truth, Lies and Afghanistan: How Military Leaders Have Let Us Down.’
Once we call on God to bless our war efforts and claim that He is behind our endeavors, we can end up justifying almost anything.
This does not mean that we should let our guard down or not prepare for war. War should be a last resort. So let’s give war to the atheists. Their worldview is all about “nature, red in tooth and claw.
