WOMEN'S DRAFT BILL WORST LAW IN THE HISTORY OF NATIONS~DRAFTING WOMEN MEANS EQUALITY IN SLAVERY
In our opinion, the proposed Selective Service bill recently introduce in the House of Representatives would be the worst policy decision that any nation has ever adopted in the history of the world, if passed. It is even worse than abortion on demand or the legalization of sodomy or the transgender laws. It is the greatest assault on the model of society that God has ordained for the tranquility of mankind ever launched by any one, civilized or uncivilized. There is no mischief on earth that will not be spawned through this wicked law. And to further this atrocity, the decision to put our young girls into combat further exacerbates the issue. What kind of animals would do this? And even so called “Christian” conservative women on TV are calling for this as good National policy. I have heard some of the Fox News women, Greta, and others say, equality demands that they go. How tragic that those who have been beating the drums for “Equal Rights”, couldn’t see what was coming. Equal Rights also means, Equal Responsibilities. We are now beginning to see the final fruit of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that the majority at the time called for, calling it the “mother vote”, and that the nation needed it, because it would raise the moral temperature of the country. As Dr. Bob Jones, Sr. always said, “It never is right to do wrong in order to do right.” The only defense against this will be a conscientious defense on the part of those who can prove that they cannot wear military attire because of their religious beliefs. However their church will have to have a congregational resolution on record before this bill is passed, and a majority of the women will have to practice the resolution in their daily dress, including their children or when it goes to court, and it will, they will be laughed out of the court room. But, if they can show consistency, it is our opinion that they can win their case on the First and Tenth Amendment. In our opinion even the individual who can show that the family or one young lady, even if her family are not believers would be able to make the argument if she has been consistent in this matter of dress. However there won’t be many that will qualify, but the Lord Jesus said, “Many are called but few are chosen.”
Satan hates women. Ever since the promise of Gen 3:15 – “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel,”he has hated the woman with all that is within him and has tried to do everything in his power to separate her from her God. He is doing a pretty good job of it. To drive her from the sanctity of her home into a foxhole with a strange man, possibly even of a different race, to face the horribleness of modern warfare, the reality of rape, by our own soldiers or the enemy, and the possibility of death or cruel torture and imprisonment is unthinkable beyond anything that the mind can imagine. And then to see thousands of young women returning with one arm, or no legs, and then with PSTD trying to mother children, is to see a coming nightmare beyond description.
Mankind will go a long way in his rebellion against God and to prove that the Bible is untrue. But it is a long, long way from claiming that man came from monkeys to saying that men and women are equal to the degree that women are capable to fight our wars. This shows how far a perverted mind will carry you.
Last week the House Armed Services Committee approved an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act requiring women to register with Selective Service. This means that if Congress ever brings back the draft, women will be forcibly sent to war.
The amendment is a response to the Pentagon’s decision to allow women to serve in combat. Supporters of drafting women point out that the ban on women in combat was the reason the Supreme Court upheld a male-only draft. Therefore, they argue, it is only logical to now force women to register for Selective Service. Besides, supporters of extending the draft point out, not all draftees are sent into combat.
Most of those who opposed drafting women did so because they disagreed with women being eligible for combat positions, not because they opposed the military draft. Few, if any, in Congress are questioning the morality, constitutionality, and necessity of Selective Service registration. Thus, this debate is just another example of how few of our so-called “representatives” actually care about our liberty.
Some proponents of a military draft justify it as “payback” for the freedom the government provides its citizens. Those who make this argument are embracing the collectivist premise that since our rights come from government, the government can take away those rights whether it suits their purposes. Thus supporters of the draft are turning their backs on the Declaration of Independence.
While opposition to the draft is seen as a progressive or libertarian position, many conservatives, including Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, and Robert Taft, where outspoken opponents of conscription. Unfortunately, the militarism that has led so many conservatives astray in foreign policy has also turned many of them into supporters of mandatory Selective Service registration. Yet many of these same conservatives strongly and correctly oppose mandatory gun registration. In a free society you should never have to register your child or your gun.
Sadly, some opponents of the warfare state, including some libertarians, support the draft on the grounds that a draft would cause a mass uprising against the warfare state. Proponents of this view point to the draft’s role in galvanizing opposition to the Vietnam War. This argument ignores that fact that it took several years and the deaths of thousands of American draftees for the anti-Vietnam War movement to succeed.
A variation on this argument is that drafting women will cause an antiwar backlash as Americans recoil form the idea of forcing mothers into combat. But does anyone think the government would draft mothers with young children?
Reinstating the draft will not diminish the war party’s influence as long as the people continue to believe the war propaganda fed to them by the military-industrial complex’s media echo chamber. Changing the people’s attitude toward the warfare state and its propaganda organs is the only way to return to a foreign policy of peace and commerce with all.
Even if the draft could serve as a check on the warfare state, those who support individual liberty should still oppose it. Libertarians who support violating individual rights to achieve a political goal, even a goal as noble as peace, undermine their arguments against non-aggression and thus discredit both our movement, and, more importantly, our philosophy.
A military draft is one of — if not the — worst violations of individual rights committed by modern governments. The draft can also facilitate the growth of the warfare state by lowing the cost of militarism. All those who value peace, prosperity, and liberty must place opposition to the draft at the top of their agenda. ______________________________________________________
Military Draft Opens Up to Women
Published on Apr 29, 2016
Women may soon be drafted into the military after the House passed a defense policy bill 60-2, which included a provision that women would be required to register for the draft. The provision comes months after the Defense Department lifted all gender-based restrictions on the front-line combat units. The US hasn’t had a military draft since the Vietnam War era in 1973. The full House will consider the provision next month. Joya Mia Italiano and Melvin Robert review the latest provision and the ongoing debate about women's roles in the military on the Lip News.
