Pentagon Blocks Troops' Access to Southern Baptist Website

Pentagon leaders have blocked soldiers' access to the website of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). The SBC is the largest Protestant denomination in the United States with 16 million members, making it the second-largest religious denomination is the entire country after Roman Catholicism.

The SBC is also the largest evangelical Christian denomination in the world.

Starnes reports, "An Air Force officer told Fox News that when he tried to log on to the website he received a message that his Internet usage was being logged and monitored for trying to access a blocked site." An Army officer was likewise denied access, with the message, "The site you have requested has been blocked... due to hostile content."

This example of possible censorship of religious beliefs comes on the heels of an Army officer's email, previously reported by Breitbart News, warning soldiers to keep a watchful eye on devout Christians. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was recently pressed about the email by Rep. Randy Forbes but provided no answers.  

I guess in Obama's America the 1st amendment doesn't apply to Baptists.
