Obama and his minions are on a mission to stop Americans everywhere from worshipping God. They have even set their sights on the military, trying to tell the men and women who risk their lives for us every day that they have no right to openly give thanks to Jesus.

Hearing this, these marines decided to take action.

This viral video shows marines openly singing the Christian hymn “Lord, I Lift Your Name On High.” The footage has already received millions of views, so Obama is undoubtedly enraged.

A video like this could not have come at a more desperate time for Christians in the military. Air Force Major Gen. Craig Olson is currently facing a court martial for mentioning God during a prayer meeting.

“(F)lying complex aircraft; doing complex nuclear missions — I have no ability to do that. God enabled me to do that,” Maj. Gen. Olson said after he was reported by a secular group. “He put me in charge of failing programs worth billions of dollars. I have no ability to do that, no training to do that. God did that. He sent me to Iraq to negotiate foreign military sales deals through an Arabic interpreter. I have no ability to do that. I was not trained to do that. God did all of that.”

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation, however, was outraged by Olson’s speech and demanded that the military publicly humiliate him. This group believes that everyone should be able to openly worship the God they choose – except for Christians, that is. They are demanding that Olson be “aggressively and very visibly brought to justice for his unforgivable crimes and transgressions,” and that anyone else involved in his speech be punished “to the full extent of military law.”

The MRFF has also launched a campaign to ban the phrase “have a blessed day” from a Georgia Air Force base after a serviceman used it in an email.

“On no less than 15 occasions over the last two weeks, I have been greeted by the military personnel at the gate with the phrase,” the email said. “This greeting has been expressed by at least 10 different Airmen ranging in rank from A1C to SSgt. I found the greeting to be a notion that I, as a non-religious member of the military community should believe a higher power has an influence on how my day should go.”
