Seminaries threaten to stop sending chaplains to military

Here’s a good one:

ICECE [International Conference of Evangelical Christian Endorsers] officials and representatives from a delegation of endorsers met with [SC Sen. Lindsey] Graham and Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., in February, to allege their chaplains are not able to pray in accordance with their faith. Baugham said some evangelical Christian chaplains have been punished for invoking Jesus’ name in their prayers.

I’m pretty sure I read that wrong. I almost thought it said that Christian chaplains have been punished for invoking Jesus’ name in their prayers.

  1. From the article ‘.. he got in hot water during the summer of 2004 while aboard the USS Anzio for preaching an evangelistic sermon at the funeral of a Catholic sailor in a base chapel’ There is a time and place for everything. I probably would of smacked around the chaplin for being stupid… Religion is one of those things the inspire the extreme. A chaplin is to save souls and provide comfort, not to impose his religon on others.
