The Moral Direction of America #2: Calling Good "Evil" and Ignoring the Commission of Evil

Call Congress to insist the Sargent be reinstated.

Obama Policy supports Child Rape over Offending Muslims

Sargent Removed Without Pay for Beating Afghani Pedophile

In a new low for the Obama administration, a 20 September 2015 article in the New York Times revealed that the Obama administration has ordered US soldiers to ignore child abuse occurring at the hands of Afghani officials. Brought to a head by the forced retirement of an Army Sargent who beat a pedophile Police Captain,

“In his last phone call home, Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father what was troubling him: From his bunk in southern Afghanistan, he could hear Afghan police officers sexually abusing boys they had brought to the base.

‘At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,’ the Marine’s father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. ‘My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.’ Rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan, particularly among armed commanders who dominate much of the rural landscape and can bully the population. The practice is called bacha bazi, literally ‘boy play,’ and American soldiers and Marines have been instructed not to intervene — in some cases, not even when their Afghan allies have abused boys on military bases, according to interviews and court records.

The policy has endured as American forces have recruited and organized Afghan militias to help hold territory against the Taliban. But soldiers and Marines have been increasingly troubled that instead of weeding out pedophiles, the American military was arming them in some cases and placing them as the commanders of villages — and doing little when they began abusing children.

‘The reason we were here is because we heard the terrible things the Taliban were doing to people, how they were taking away human rights,’ said Dan Quinn, a former Special Forces captain who beat up an American-backed militia commander for keeping a boy chained to his bed as a sex slave. ‘But we were putting people into power who would do things that were worse than the Taliban did — that was something village elders voiced to me.’

The policy of instructing soldiers to ignore child sexual abuse by their Afghan allies is coming under new scrutiny, particularly as it emerges that service members like Captain Quinn have faced discipline, even career ruin, for disobeying it.

After the beating, the Army relieved Captain Quinn of his command and pulled him from Afghanistan. He has since left the military.

Four years later, the Army is also trying to forcibly retire Sgt. First Class Charles Martland, a Special Forces member who joined Captain Quinn in beating up the commander.”

True to the New York Times habit of covering for the Obama administration, it should be noted that several sources (Military.com, the Daily Beast, and others) have asserted that the Sargent is being removed without pay or benefits (far from “retired”).

Homosexual Rape of Men within the Military Becomes an Issue in Obama’s Military

Since Obama’s 22 June 2011 repeal of Bill Clinton’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, the instance of male-on-male rape within the military has been a larger problem than many will admit as evidenced by articles in:

  • Military.com on 20 December 2013

    “But because male service members greatly outnumber females, officials believe the majority of sexual assault victims — 53 percent in 2012are men.”

  • The Washington Times on 20 May 2014 revealed

    “When the Defense Department released the results of its anonymous sexual abuse survey this month and concluded that 26,000 service members were victims in fiscal 2012, which ended Sept. 30, an automatic assumption was that most were women. But roughly 14,000 of the victims were male and 12,000 female, according to a scientific survey sample produced by the Pentagon.”

  • The Daily Mail on 15 September 2014 where they shared:

    “Though women are more likely to be the victims of rape in the military, male-on-male rape is still a serious problem sweeping the U.S. armed forces.”

Obama Appoints First Openly Homosexual Secretary of the Army

As reported in the following 21 September 2015 Fox News video, Barack Hussein Obama appointed the first openly homosexual Secretary of the Army.

Although I would not suggest that Christians violate God’s commandment regarding loving our enemies, I also would not suggest that any person who is unrepentant of known sin (whether it is a pastor who has used prostitutes or a layman who has participated in the just one of things named in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11) should be lifted up and celebrated as Obama celebrates Mr. Fanning.  Having said that, I also would not ally myself with anyone who would assign the death penalty to homosexuals or even suggest that homosexuality might be an unforgivable sin.
