Military Chaplains Face Court-martial for ‘Religious, Conscience’ Objection to Homosexual Conduct?

Curtailing of religious liberties to be enacted?

Can this be true?  And yet they said this could/would never happen.

The U.S. Army has officially threatened military chaplains they must either embrace the new openly homosexual military, resign from service, or face court-martial for their “religious, conscience” objections. The Pray In Jesus Name Project has obtained leaked copies (unintended for media disclosure) of a private briefing given to chaplains, threatening them with court-martial unless they compromise their Christian message.

Christian Chaplains who speak out against homosexual sin can be accused of “harassment” by homosexuals and face disciplinary action simply for voicing their religious views outside the “context” of their religious ministry.

[Chaplains' interpretation: The phrase "vocational reflection" is not-so-subtle code language meaning "reconcile with homosexuality or find another line of work." The phrase "do NOT tolerate harassment" is code language for "don't speak against sin, for ANY reason, or you the Chaplain will be disciplined for quoting the Bible, and the homosexual protected."]Source

One Response to Military Chaplains Face Court-martial for ‘Religious, Conscience’ Objection to Homosexual Conduct?

  1. Tony Sidaway says:

    I think we have to remember why military chaplains are employed in the services in the first place: to minister to the troops, rather than proselytize. There’s a delicate balance between the two. The military service chiefs can set sensible bounds, as they seem to have done here, and expect the chaplains to abide by military discipline.
