Never let a super-anything superimpose itself on a free world

The Battle for Freedom Continues Today


I've watched Battleground (1949). The film portrayed the men fighting in 1945 in Bastogne, France during the Battle of the Bulge. The Chaplains message still warns us today:


We must never again let any force dedicated to a super-race…

or a super-idea, or super-anything…

become strong enough to impose itself upon a free world.


 Watch The Message - Battleground


In the film, the Chaplain’s message at Christmas 1945 answers why we must fight against people and ideas that would enslave us or kill us. There is no compromise between food and poison, there is no compromise between life and death, there is no compromise between our super intrusive government and the Freedom to follow your Faith, care for your Family, celebrate with your Friends or work and build with your Fellowships without interference.


As you read the Chaplain’s words, think today of ISIS, think today of radical Islam and think today of our Super-Government that glorifies gay marriage while ignoring murder.


The Chaplain’s Message – Christmas 1945


These services aren’t just for Lutherans, any more than just for men from Ohio.

I merely happen to be in your area.

In other areas, there are other chaplains of various denominations and religions.

All of us Holy Joes are switch-hitters. Earlier this month in Holland,

I held Hanukkah services for some of the men of the Jewish faith.

How did I do, Levenstein?

Not bad for a beginner, sir.

Now it’s nearly Christmas and here we are in beautiful Bastogne enjoying the winter sports.

And the $64 question is:

“Was this trip necessary?”

I’ll try to answer that.

But my sermons, like everything else in the army depend on the situation and the terrain.

So I assure you this is going to be a quickie.

Was this trip necessary?

Let’s look at the facts.

Nobody wanted this war but the Nazis.

A great many people tried to deal with them, and a lot of them are dead.

Millions have died for no other reason

except that the Nazis wanted them dead.

So, in the final showdown, there was nothing left to do except fight.

There’s a great lesson in this.

Those of us who’ve learned it the hard way aren’t going to forget it.

We must never again let any force dedicated to a super-race…

or a super-idea, or super-anything…

become strong enough to impose itself upon a free world.

We must be smart enough and tough enough in the beginning…

to put out the fire before it starts spreading.

So my answer to the $64 question is:

Yes, this trip was necessary.

As the years go by, a lot of people are going to forget.

But you won’t.

And don’t ever let anybody tell you…

you were a sucker to fight in the war against Fascism.

And now, Jerry permitting, let us pray.

Let us pray for this fog to lift.

Almighty God…

The artillery is hitting those bass notes a little too loud for me to be heard.

So let us each pray in his own way, to his own God.

When you hear planes, men, don’t bother to look up.

They’ll be ours.
