Not getting it.
A godbotherer claims that Obama is driving all the Christians out of the military and sowing their fields with salt. His claims are short on citations, apart from a link-free date-free mention of the Washington Times.
But he does give a couple of examples.
If you are in the military today, you have got to be so careful about any expression of faith.
Even the slightest slip up can cause the authorities to crack down on you.
Just consider the following two examples which come from Newsmax…
In December, a chaplain for a Ranger training battalion was sent an administrative letter of concern after a soldier complained that he had promoted Christianity and used a Bible during a mandatory suicide-prevention training session.
Last month, a Navy chaplain was removed from his job and may lose his career after complaints about his private counseling during which he discouraged homosexuality and sex outside of marriage.
You mean a Christian chaplain actually “used a Bible” and “promoted Christianity”?
Not too sharp, is he. It was a mandatory suicide-prevention training session. That’s the issue. Obviously Christian chaplains can use a bible and promote Christianity, but they shouldn’t be doing it for mandatory training sessions. I’d prefer to be able to say they’re not allowed to. but that’s the very point at issue. Chaplains should be available but not mandatory.
Everything else he says is, frankly, bullshit.
