Let us hope Trump gets this last second Army Directive overturned pronto. The Chaplains and religion have been under attack for the past eight years. Here are a few of the earlier outrageous posts before I get to the heart of the matter:
Army puts Muslim Cleric in charge of 14,000 soldiers religious needs March 1, 2017 — bunkerville
Military Chaplin disciplined for mentioning faith December 26, 2014 — bunkerville
Marine Dad complained about daughter being taught Muslim religion, banned from her graduation September 26, 2016 — bunkerville
The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty sent a letter last month to the Secretary of the Army about his predecessor. Former Secretary of the Army Eric K. Fanning signed an order that targeted Christian beliefs hours before he resigned.
Army Directive 2017-06 required the Army to train against “implicit or unconscious bias.”The directive threatens Army personnel who hold Christian beliefs, said the chaplains. They wrote to acting Secretary of the Army Robert M. Speer. While Fanning did not spell out what the bias is, the chaplains claim it is a way to target Army persons who have Biblical beliefs about sexuality.
Fanning held the title of the first openly gay service secretary.
Chaplain Ron Crews is the executive director for the Chaplain Alliance. Crews told CBN News that Fanning was very proud that he was the first homosexual to serve as a Secretary of the Army. Crews added that Fanning has been pushing his own agenda in the Army at the expense of war training.
“Everybody in the Army should believe there is a path forward for them. Readiness is getting the most out of the force,” Fanning told The Washington Times on Wednesday. “I don’t think opportunity and equality are political agendas. I think they’re important American values.”
The order does not increase military readiness, said Crews. It wastes valuable training time to push a political agenda.
