Before and After Pictures, when do Christians take a stand?

This is beyond reprehensible!!!

  Who is to blame for this incessant religious persecution against Christians?  Is it the Atheists, the Muslims, the Military, Obama perhaps?  The answer is:  None of the above.  The true questions should be:  Why are Christians allowing the persecution to go on?  Why are Christians afraid to stand up for what they believe?  Why are Christians so willing to take a back seat and cower before human authority, when they preach that God is the soul authority?
  Here we have a case of American warriors who are fighting at the behest of the so-called Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces.  They did not ask to be in Afghanistan, and when they enlisted in the military, they were not asked or ordered to leave their religious beliefs at the outside gate of their boot camp.  In 1967 when I first enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, our motto was "God, Country and Corps", when did the United States Government ask the American people if they could remove "God" from that motto?  When did the United States Government decide to twist the 1st Amendment from "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.", to "Unless you are a Muslim or Atheist, you have no freedom to practice your religion!".  A large part of exercising one's religious beliefs, entails the designation of places to worship one's God.  According to this article by Politico, there are two Muslim Mosques on this military base.  What are the chances that on the front of these Mosques or, up atop the spires of these Mosques there are symbols depicting the Muslim faith?  Oh yes, you can bet there are "Crescent Moons" predominately located to indicate that the Mosque is a place to worship Allah, the Muslim moon god.  When was the U.S. Army manual rewritten so that no religious symbols could be permanently affixed or displayed on a chapel interior or exterior grounds?  When I was a Camp Pendleton USMC base, every religion had signs and symbols designating a place of worship.  The Synagogue had the Jewish Star, the Catholic Church had their Crucifix and the Protestant's had their Cross.  Maybe the Marine Corps just had their own regulations regarding religious symbolism, or maybe they never read the U.S. Army manual.  During WWII, there were many authentic photographs of Christian and Jewish houses of worship, each had a symbol of designation.  In Korea, it was the same, and I can personally attest to the fact that in Vietnam, churches on base or a base camps had religious symbols on the tents and hooches designating that that place was a house of worship for Christians and or Jews, respectively.  So, why not in Afghanistan?  Why not in Iraq?  Why not in Pakistan?  Why not on a U.S. Military Base in any of those countries, and now, not even on Military bases within our own borders?  If you want to know the answer, ask yourself; when was the last time an organized group of Christians from your church stood up, locked arm in arm against the ACLU?  When was last time a group of Christians prayed at a public event, when prayer was banned from that event?  When was last time Christian patriots stood locked arms and blocked law enforcement from removing the Ten Commandments from a public building?  I'm going to take a wild guess and say none of you, including myself have ever exercised the other 1st Amendment Right of Free Speech and peaceful assembly to petition the government for a redress of grievances.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that American Christians have a reason to petition the government for a redress of the grievances of religious discrimination, and persecution. 
  When Muslims feel discriminated against, they come out and protest in the thousands, when Atheists feel discriminated against, they scream and yell and whine and moan that they want equal time to be recognized as believers in nothing.  When any ethnic group feels they have been discriminated against they protest loud and long and in numbers that cannot be ignored by law makers.  But when Christians are persecuted and discriminated against, where are the multitudes, where?  Where are the 70% of American Christians that should be taking a stand against the evil of this world and this country?  
  There is only one reason why Christians are being persecuted in America, and that is because Christians of the many denominations will not stand together.  Christians are being persecuted in the United States of America, simply because United States Christians allow the persecution to take place with only a tiny cry of "foul", when it should be a ROAR!!!  
  I don't think American Christians understand that they (we) are the majority in this country.  We Christians have numbers high enough to elect or throw out a President, elect or throw out a Senator or Congressman, if only we would stand together.  There is no one to blame for Christian persecution in this free country that was founded on Christian principles, no one to blame but Christians themselves.
There is no law, Federal, State or Local that calls for the "separation" of church and state!!!  It is impossible to be in violation of a law that does not exist.  Pray in public, and remember, it is still okay, and legal to say "Merry Christmas"
