Here’s more Obama Derangement Syndrome:

Christians are leaving the U.S. military or are discouraged from joining in the first place because of a “hostile work environment” that doesn’t let them express their beliefs openly, religious freedom advocates say.

Michael Berry, senior counsel at the Liberty Institute, a Texas-based legal organization dedicated to defending religious liberty in America, said recent high-profile cases of military chaplains facing punishment for private counseling sessions that reflected the teachings of their religion could cause devout Americans who are qualified for military service to think twice about joining the military.

In December, a chaplain for a Ranger training battalion received an administrative letter of concern after a soldier complained that he advocated Christianity and used the Bible during a mandatory unit suicide-prevention training session. The Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers said the chaplain “used his official position to force his personal religious beliefs on a captive military audience” in an article the group posted on its website.

And, last month, a Navy chaplain was removed from his post and may lose his career after some sailors complained about his private counseling, in which he reportedly advocated against homosexuality and sex outside of marriage.

Yes, because, mandatory Christian training should not be part of the military, nor should bigotry.

    Yep. It “could” also cause them to stick their finger in their eye and jump up and down. Heavens!

    When Navy Seals kill bin Laden, President Obama had nothing to do with it and deserves no credit.

    When there is dissatisfaction with the services provided by military chaplains, it is entirely the fault of President Obama.

    And that concludes today’s 30-second lesson on right wing hypocrisy.

    Why do christian advocates think they don’t have to obey the rules and then get their panties in a knot when called out?

      Because they need reasons to claim “persecution”, dont’cha know? I guess feigned victimization is the new black in Christian circles.

    Wiki up the Liberty Institute, makes for a short interesting read of intrusion and ignorance.

    I just bet that the group formerly known as the Republican Party just cringes every time 1 of their bagger nuts speaks…;o) but that’s what they get for inviting them into their party.
