Military Chaplin disciplined for mentioning faith

Apparently the days of having Chaplains in the military are coming to an end. Perhaps I should say Christian Chaplains. In this Christmas season, of all times, it is worth a note that this item is on the agenda of this administration. Here we go:

Apparently, the Obama administration’s ostensible determination to foster “diversity” in the military is a one-way street. Army Chaplain Joseph Lawhorn was disciplined for mentioning his faith and the Bible as part of a November suicide prevention training seminar with the 5th Ranger Training Battalion. “You provided a two-sided handout that listed Army resources on one side and a biblical approach to handling depression on the other side,” wrote Col. David Fivecoat, commander of the Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade at Ft. Benning, Georgia, in an official Letter of Concern. “This made it impossible for those in attendance to receive the resource information without also receiving the biblical information.”

In an interview with the Daily Signal, Lawhorn expressed that idea, further insisting he was only doing his job. “What I had tried to communicate with my audience is that depression can be conquered, depression can be overcome, and there are a myriad of ways of dealing with depression,” he explained. “In this particular case, I had struggled myself personally with the issue at hand I was teaching.”

    I don’t know why you’d have a chaplain do anything without expecting him to preach. If it was an accountant, he would have told them to path to inner peace is a diverse retirement portfolio and the other side of the card would have been Dunn and Bradstreet’s Ten Commandments of Prudent Financial Management. It would have been really something if the chaplain was snake handler!

    I’m guessing that if the handout had “Allahu Akbar” on the other side there would not have been a problem. Pfffffft!

      I am with you on this one Jim. My thought entirely. One has to wonder what they think the title Chaplin means at all. Sickening.
