Well, not only do Tim Tebow and his Christian friends suffer from Jesus hatred but apparently so do our brave troops fighting for us in Afghanistan. A cross was taken down at a base chapel to the chagrin of many brave soldiers.
What is really strange to me is that we don't have a real clear understanding of exactly why the cross was taken down. According to some of the troops, no Muslims had complained and in fact there were two mosques on the base. Also Jews had recently conducted services in the chapel and there were no complaints from them.
Here are some of the responses of the soldiers about the cross incident:
“We are here away from our families, and the chapel is the one place that feels like home,” a service member at Camp Marmal told POLITICO. “With the cross on the outside, it is a constant reminder for all of us that Jesus is here for us.”
“Not having it there is really upsetting,” added another. “I walk by the chapel daily on the way to chow and the gym, and seeing the cross is a daily reminder of my faith and what Jesus accomplished for me. It is daily inspiration and motivation for me to acknowledge my faith and stay on the right path.”
These people are over there risking their lives for our freedom and they deserve to have every comfort and convenience possible in a war zone, but thanks to another episode of Jesus hatred, their cross has been taken down. I'd be willing to bet a couple of busybody atheists and/or liberals complained and well, you know, we wouldn't want to offend a couple of lunatics.
Now how about that, boys and girls?
Here's a picture of the vile, offensive cross.
