Man who implausibly took out whole armies with bare hands now crafting similarly fanciful fictions

by Jeremy Hooper

This week, Chuck Norris takes a break from mulling over a spec script for Sidekicks 2, and instead works to frame the U.S. Department of Defense as anti-religion. And would you look at that? He's citing gays and basic LGBT acceptance as but one area where this department, under the Obama administration has supposedly "limited, quarantined, omitted, or outright obliterated" religious freedom. LGBT people get three of Chuck's thirteen cited problems, with fear quotes, lies about forcibly-performed weddings, and terms like "radical" thrown in for good measure:

- President Obama lobbies for the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which tramples on the faith of employers in hiring, firing, and promotion decisions (October 2011).

- The Pentagon releases new regulations, forcing chaplains to perform same-sex "weddings" despite their religious objections (September 2011).

- Secretary Hillary Clinton demonizes other countries' religious beliefs as an obstacle to radical homosexual rights (December 2011).

Of course, the mainstream media have barely touched the fray of any of these stories about the U.S. military trampling on religion and religious rights. But do you think they would have reported them if the faith and practice being restricted was Islam?

Chuck Norris: U.S. Dept. of Defense and their war on religion -- Pt. 1 [AFA]

So where does Chuck get his ideas about us? Oh, well having spent years in over-the-top Hollywood flicks, he knows an unrealistic script writer when he sees 6A00D8341C503453Ef0147E30F2Ee4970Bone. So true to this fictional form, the onetime TV Texas ranger specifically thanks God for leading him to the Family Research Council and its wealth of misinformation.

Because what, Chuck, making me pretend to like action movies at many an '80s sleepover wasn't enough for ya? Ya gotta come after my adult years, too? Weak.

Paging "Dancing With The Stars": Give this person a new hobby in 2012.
