An Air Force Leader Wants to Promote Jesus via the Military, Says Watchdog Group

Filed under: Atheism, Bigotry, Criminal, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 10:59

For years there has been a steady growth of christians pushing their religion in the military.  I was subject to it in the 1980’s.  These people really are dangerous because they use their religion as a weapon and if you want promotion or even leave time, you have to be on their good side.   Which means go to church, go to bible studies, do the christian stuff.   In training camps if you do not want to spend sunday doing chores you have to go to church.  Christian church.   It has spread and is getting to be a serious problem.   Remember the military is full of people of all different faiths and non-faith, but not if the christians have their way.  They want a christian take over as much as the muslims want an islamic world.   The rest of us are stuck in the middle of these religions fighting for world dominance.    Hugs

What has gone unmentioned in all this is how Teichert has been running an online Christian ministry for years, arguably violating military policy, in which he also expressed a desire to convert people under his command as well as his superiors.

For years now, Teichert has run a group called Prayer at Lunchtime for the United States, in which he’s posted articles and interviews merging church and state. He also has no problem using this military achievements while proselytizing — a major no-no.

When he spoke at a religious conference in 2016, he used his military title in his description. On blog posts he made, he falsely said “our nation was founded by Christians as a Christian nation.” Then there’s the list of people he wants everyone to pray for, including Donald Trump, “A return to our Biblical foundation,” “Christian leaders to find favor among men,” and “Key leaders to accept Christ as their Savior.”

Perhaps the most egregious thing he’s ever said was during a 2017 sermon for Fountain City Baptist Church in Alabama. You can hear it around the 7:30 mark or in the clip below:

… I would ask for your prayers for wisdom in my life of leadership and discernment and understanding and knowledge for influence over the nation’s senior leaders that I get to rub shoulders with. My desire in my life is to maximize my impact on people in our country for the Lord.

  1. The United States Airforce is a Christian denomination religious institution and should not be trusted to put the interests of the nation over their commitment to their religious beliefs. The phrase God and country pretty much describes their order of priority. You simply should not trust the priorities of the Christian Air Force leadership. Apparently their weakling god requires total serenader or it tends to act out of jealousy.

    • Yes, also all the branches are suffering from this problem. The chaplins service is becoming more and more fundamentalist christian. The common rooms are turned in to a place for proselytizing and outreach / preaching to young adults who have no real power to make them leave them alone. I remember when I was in the army our TV room was taken over weekly for christian church services. During that time we couldn’t use the other facilities that were adjacent like the pool room, as that was called disrespectful. So you could say for that day we basically lost our common areas to religion, but only the christian one. Hugs

  2. They have their ideology completely inverted, Christians have a commandment that forbids killing. What use are christians in the military?

    • The military is packed with them. As a group they are becoming very powerful. It is scary how much they can get away with, but only the christian religions. If any faith tried to do what the christian faith now feels entitled to being able to do there would be a total outrage. Hugs

  3. I was an open foxhole atheist. But then again, I did train with some units, more southern based, that made me glad I wasn’t assigned there. I’ve seen “commander didn’t like” being the real reason behind poor performance reviews, depite what it said on the paper.
