Do you believe the U.S. Military has the right to a Christian chaplain?


I've heard the U. S. Military has ordered crosses down from Chaplain tents so they don't "offend" anyone and I've heard they are denying Christian Troops religious freedom to their Christian beliefs. What are your thoughts?

    I hadn't heard the prez ordered one covered, but I'm not surprised either.

    I did not know that military Chaplains had to support all faiths. That must be a difficult position for some.

    Our military as our country was built on the Jesus Christ faith but we allowed others in but now all of a sudden we are the ones they want to root out and you think that is OK? Tell me if you think God would make or approve of the remark you made.

    Actually, I heard it from about 8 different news sources. I heard it from a minister being interviewed also.

    The news source I saw on the cross had photo. I believe it was submitted my an Air Force member. It was on TV so I can't recall the news source. I think this effects everyone (end result) whether or not they are Christian. Because what's next?

    I like how you addressed the "spiritual comfort" and that it should apply to all members of different faiths. If one faith is recognized, it should recognize all of them. Why are Christians being singled out? Christianity does not coerce!

    I agree with you Faith. I was wondering if anyone was truly paying attention. Have you noticed that if someone screams "I want to worship Satan" it's okay. If someone wants to read a Muslim bible, it's okay. But if it has to do with Christ....Well!

    "Service members can share their faith (evangelize), but must not force unwanted, intrusive attempts to convert others of any faith or no faith to one’s beliefs (proselytization)." http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/05/...
