Just a Bunch of Terrorist Loving Phony Soldiers.

Has to be considered a candidate for wingnuttery of the week, month, year and decade.

Yesterday, it was reported that the Army had rescinded its invitation to Franklin Graham to speak at a National Day of Prayer event at the Pentagon due to his past attacks on Islam.

And of course, the wingnut preachers and others chime in on this blasphemy and what it all means for America.

From Tony Perkins

The fact that he has theological differences with Islam, differences wholly in keeping with the teachings of the New Testament, and that he has expressed them publicly, is now being used by anti-Christian zealots in a manner offensive to the freedom of religion guaranteed by the very Constitution military leaders are sworn to uphold.

"This decision is further evidence that the leadership of our nation's military has been impaired by the politically correct culture being advanced by this Administration. Under this Administration's watch we are seeing the First Amendment, designed to protect the religious exercise of Americans, retooled into a sword to sever America's ties with orthodox Christianity.

"For those Christian leaders who have avoided the controversy of political issues, saying they just wanted to preach the gospel - this should be a wake up call!"

"anti Christian zealots". That's right Tony, so what's the problem since Obama was born in Kenya and is a stealth Muslim anyways, according to right wing CW.

And not to be outdone, the execrable Bryan Fischer from the American Family Association nutbags.

sees it as proof that our military has been taken over by "fundamentalist Muslims and homosexual activists":

Bottom line: you want to know who's now running the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy and the Marines and calling the shots where it counts? Fundamentalist Muslims and homosexual activists.

In fact, I'll predict that there will be a day of prayer at the Pentagon on May 6, and it will feature a Muslim imam, a homosexual clergyman, and no conservative Christians of any kind.

This is not your father's military. It's not even your father's country anymore.
