Fort Carson has been submitted to Islamist oppression, and it’s not far from the Islamic enclaves that have submitted meat plants to Islamic sharia law. Not far from where the Muslim Brotherhood’s Sayyid Qutb resided and modernized jihadi thought.
DENVER — A religious watchdog group says a cross and religious motto on the emblem of an Army hospital in Colorado violate the constitutional requirement for separation of church and state and should be removed.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation asked the Army this week to change the emblem of Evans Army Community Hospital at Fort Carson, outside Colorado Springs.
The emblem says “Pro deo et humanitate” or “For God and humanity.”
Fort Carson commanders will review the complaint, Lt. Col. Steve Wollman said.
He said the emblem had been approved by the Army Institute of Heraldry and has been in use since 1969.
Wollman said references to doctors serving God and humanity date to the time of Hippocrates, a pre-Christianity Greek physician.
Wollman said the cross, which has a pointed base, is both an emblem of mercy and a symbol dating to the Middle Ages, when pilgrims carried a cross with a spiked base to mark the site of a camp.
Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said that’s a reference to the Crusades and could embolden U.S. enemies who want to portray the war on terror as a Christian war on Islam.
“This continues to add more fodder to the argument that we are Crusaders,” Weinstein said. “It’s exactly what fundamentalist Muslims want.”
What they and Weinstein want is for us to submit to Islam and remove any barrier to sharia law.
Weinstein’s foundation, based in Albuquerque, N.M., last week persuaded the Army to withdraw an invitation to evangelist Franklin Graham to speak at the Pentagon on May 6, the National Day of Prayer.
Weinstein cited comments Graham made in 2001 describing Islam as evil. The Army said it withdrew the invitation because Graham’s remarks were “not appropriate.”
Graham is the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham.
Weinstein said he lodged the complaint about the cross on behalf of 43 people at Fort Carson. He said 29 of them are Protestants or Catholics. One is a civilian and the others are enlisted personnel or junior officers.
The usual sloppy reporting by the AP. If 29 were specifically identified as Christians, we can presume the other 14 are Muslim – and it’s not likely that it’s the Muslims who are just along for the ride.
Similar to when Muslims caused an uproar about the Red Cross. Of course the Red Crescent is the Muslims-only version of the kuffar Red Cross.
