Amendment Protects Religious Liberty of Military Members

The Fiscal Year 2013 defense-authorization bill says that the armed forces 'shall accommodate the conscience and sincerely held moral principles and religious beliefs' of its members regarding 'the appropriate and inappropriate expression of human sexuality.'

No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

This is great. It means any military member can disobey any order if he says it conflicts with his religion. This will be the first step to disbanding the military.

My instinct is that the purported threat to chaplains' rights to preach the message of their faiths is greatly exaggerated.

And that this amendment is another diversionary tactic that keeps Congress from focusing on their real responsibilities.

If they're going to allow all this diversity - fine. But Christians should not be forced to accept it when it goes against the Bible, the Church, thousands of years of history and their own personal beliefs.

It's about time somebody stood up to this onslaught.

Katherine, how many years did you serve in the military?

Suppose someone gives us an example of what this alleged denial of religious liberty is? The right to live in a world without gay people? Tough luck, I have no sympathy for you.

No just the right to speak against, harass, bully and attack homos based on "deeply felt religious convictions."

My husband is a Vietnam vet--I was never in the military.

My daughter's bf's dad has had PTSD from his Vietnam service for many years. He used to shoot at targets (presumably human) from helicopters.

I know a little bit about the horrors of war from them--enough to know that 1) working side by side with gay members of the military is not the cause of PTSD; 2) any priest or minister who wants to find moral issues to discuss in homilies or Bible studies in a war zone who can't find anything more relevant to talk about than homosexuality should be given a dishonorable discharge and booted into civilian life; and 3) these men and women need comfort, support, consolation, encouragement, healing, and God's love.

I could not imagine a single reason for chaplains to obsess over homosexuality--with all the trauma and desperate needs their soldiers face--unless they are emotionally stunted themselves.

Don't forget that military chaplains are responsible for the care of military families and are in charge of the children's CCD and Sunday School as well. (Some even run the Bible Studies and the Bible has some words about it.)
