The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not
permitted within the Department of Defense...Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis...”.
So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the military will make it a crime--possibly resulting
in imprisonment--for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains—military officers who are ordained clergymen of their faith
(mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis)--whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their
faith and minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.
Is this for real?
Possible courts marshal for anyone promoting their faith?
For over 100 years the military has had chaplins, and now it's 'suddenly' a problem ?
There are some ulterior motives at play here this does not make sense. On the battlefield, in camp soldiers always have the option to 'make peace'
with their maker, and have a confidant.
There is an old saying as old was warfare, 'there are no atheist's in foxholes'.
I find the lack of faith disturbing seems to me that violates the first amendment:
Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the
freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of
That is not a government I would fight for.
Honestly I would not.
For those who would support such a fascist act the military has a civilian leader subject, and confined to the constitution of the Unite States of
America to protect, and defend all rights, for all people including government employee's.
I report you decide.
