Why I didn’t re-enlist
by Casey Khan, former US Marine
Ever since the government's Depression-ending scheme of World War II, with John Wayne propaganda movies and all that, the Marine Corps has been a form of state religion, a kind of idolatry, but I can see how especially the most recent régime in the States could turn them into real Teufelhunden.

It is God, not the soldier
Who has given us the freedom of speech.
It is God, not the soldier
Who has given us the right to demonstrate.
It is God, not the soldier
Who has given us the right to due process.
It is God the Father,
Who has given us the Commandments,
Who forgives us for breaking the Commandments.


On rejecting the heresy about the military:

I choose to no longer take part in this heresy. I’m trading in my 11 General Orders for Seven Sacraments and my pocket Constitution for a Catechism. Semper fidelis in nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

Amen.
