Mark Green Withdraws from Nomination for Secretary of the Army
Tennessee state senator Mark Green has withdrawn his name from consideration for the position of Secretary of the Army.
“To meet these challenges, there should be no distractions. And unfortunately due to false and misleading attacks against me, this nomination has become a distraction,” [Mark Green] said in his statement.
“Tragically, my life of public service and my Christian beliefs have been mischaracterized and attacked by a few on the other side of the aisle for political gain,” he continued. “While these false attacks have no bearing on the needs of the Army or my qualifications to serve, I believe it is critical to give the President the ability to move forward with his vision to restore our military to its rightful place in the world.”

What a backwards world we live in — but that should be no surprise.
You will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
– Matthew 10:22 (ESV)
