Trump's Christian Choice for Army Secretary Bows Out in Midst of "Witch Hunt"

Peter LaBarbera : May 8, 2017  LifeSiteNews.com

Whomever is finally confirmed for the position will succeed former President Obama's Army Secretary, Eric Fanning, the first openly homosexual to lead the Army. Fanning helped the effort to open up the military to "transgender" individuals, which was accomplished not by an act of Congress but by order of Obama's Defense Secretary, Ash Carter.

"It is with deep regret I am withdrawing my nomination to be the Secretary of the Army," Dr. Green said in a statement, reported byThe Hill. He blamed "false and misleading attacks" against him and said he did not want to become a distraction.

"I am honored that President Trump nominated me for this position. I appreciate his support and confidence in me, as well as that of [Defense] Secretary [James] Mattis and many others, and their desire to Make America Great Again by preparing our military to face the many challenges in the world for the safety and security of our nation," said Dr. Green, according to The Hill.

This is the second Trump nominee for Secretary of the Army to step aside. In February, his first choice, Vincent Viola, withdrew his name, citing potential conflicts of interest with his family businesses.

Whomever is finally confirmed for the position will succeed former President Obama's Army Secretary, Eric Fanning, the first openly homosexual to lead the Army. Fanning helped the effort to open up the military to "transgender" individuals, which was accomplished not by an act of Congress but by order of Obama's Defense Secretary, Ash Carter.

LGBT activists were bitter and outraged that a conservative Christian with a public policy record of opposing the LGBTQ agenda was chosen to succeed a homosexual for the job. However, from a political perspective, the choice made sense for Trump: Homosexual activists were a key constituency of Obama, and evangelical Christians are the same for Trump.

Green's departure comes a day after President Trump signed an executive order to defend religious freedom. Now some are wondering why more wasn't done to support the Tennessee doctor's nomination.

"The bully left is now openly creating an unconstitutional religious litmus test for public office. If you believe the Bible, or quote the Bible in public,they claim you are unfit for office and apply their political labels until you quit," Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt toldLifeSiteNews;reacting to Green's withdrawal. "But we will not surrender to their bullying tactics.Christians have a Constitutional right to hold office, and a duty and mandate from God to redeem and sanctify the culture."

"I call upon the Trump administration to double-down and appoint more Christians to higher office. Evangelicals helped win his election, and we can also petition Senators to help President Trump get them confirmed," said Klingenschmitt, a former Colorado state representative and leader of the Christian pro-family group Pray in Jesus Name.
