Chaplain Alliance asks Army Secretary to rescind last hour Obama Army Directive


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 

Military Chaplin disciplined for mentioning faith  

Marine Dad complained about daughter being taught Muslim religion, banned from her graduation 

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.

    This subject makes me so very sad. I agree with your statement: Shredding every inch of our social fabric that makes us who we are. Heartbreaking.

    Yeah … well, it is like my dear friend AOW says: “Once the camel’s nose is under the tent …” At this point, I harbor no hope that sanity will return to the United States.

    Lets hope so…my husband is a chaplain, and when the EF 5 tornado hit in Tuscaloosa, AL in 2011 (where we lived at the time), he was told not to say when counseling folks, “In God’s name or Jesus’s name” How sad is that?

      Unbelievable. Why even have a Chaplin’s program. Bet the Muslim chaplains are not under the same constraints.

      Well in all fairness while many people are believers in a Supreme Being not all are Christian. Jews for instance. Hindu or Sikh for a few more. Or in my case, I’m a devout polytheist. And Jesus doesn’t happen to be in my list of Gods I whom worship nor to whom I give offerings and tribute.

        Originally the word chaplain referred to representatives of the Christian faith..I would say most chaplains are believers in Christ and are having a hard time adapting to the new ways. I prob. ought to leave it right at that. 🙂

        My understanding there are Catholic Protestant Jewish Muslim Chaplains. I think I read Wiccan. Either way, if one doesn’t agree, don’t talk to one. Those going into battle take great comfort in having a few words representing their faith. It has been that way since men went to war. But it is not about that now. It is about instilling a social value system that has little to do with faith IMO.
