Regarding Obama’s Youth Brigade Conscripts, which seemed to be a civilian version of government service.

Did you see the bill HR 1388 is going to prohibit conscripts from religious activity?

Section 125 (42 U.S.C. 12575) is amended to read as follows:


‘(a) Prohibited Activities- A participant in an approved national service position under this subtitle may not engage in the following activities:


(7) Engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytism.

This is a scary bill for people in America, a conscription into this service and then you can't express yourself anymore. This bill WILL cross the line, people will have to obey God as ruler rather than man. And won't be able to comply with this requirement.

This is a direct contradiction to our 1st amendment rights. What happened to freedom of speech and religion? Our country is run by a bunch of "secret society" hethens.

Actually it sounds like the heads of each group cannot do those items. IE: You can't use the gathering to do church related items.

Sounds good actually, considering how the BSA was subverted-initially it forbade discussion of religion and religious issues were not a litmus for admittance. Now most BS groups are church related and focused.

Based on what you quoted there, I think the intent is to exclude religious leaders, rather than the average layperson.

That's good, but it sure tells you what they are thinking, what they want to do.

Some of us know that one day a law will be passed similar to that.

Indeed true it is a model for them to expel people from having religious ties but in regards to the Youth brigades it just doesn't want it's members to be trying to force their beliefs to join based on if a certain brigade is all Pentecostal Christian verses one in Seattle peer pressuring others to try and join because it's filled with Methodists, which in the end if all these Brigades met up together to do voluntary service it would create a a religious conflict, so that is why they prohibit such behavior if you are to volunteer service to the program.

They don't want soldiers peer pressuring a religion into people, at least not yet anyways.
