Military Chaplains not able to pray in the name of Jesus? Why is this even a question?

January 8, 2010 | Categrory: being an American, prayer


I am wondering if I am the only one who cannot figure this one out.

America, the land of the free, is still having a debate about whether or not, Military Chaplains can end a prayer in Jesus name?

Military Chaplains, those who have been called of the Lord, to provide comfort, spiritual direction and hope to our brave Military, are being persecuted for thier faith. HR268 is a bill introduced by Congressman Walter Jones from North Carolina. Why should a Chaplain that is praying over an injured comrade or the body of a fallen soldier, censor the Name of the One who brings comfort and healing? If this is a Christian chaplain, then certainly even non-Christians can all can agree that he should pray in the name of his God! Check into what is being said, click here:
You can listen to the broadcast , then ask yourself if this should even be an issue? Apparently this has been going on for quite awhile. President Bush did nothing to help, so now President Obama is being asked to make a difference. I pray he will. This is an issue of freedom of religious expression and of the Truth. Jesus cannot be separated from Christianity! Thank you to those bringing HR 268 to the attention of the nation. The rights of our Military Chaplains, the soldiers, marines ,airmen and sailors are being held hostage. No Chaplain should ever have to ask forgiveness to God for what men say he cannot do. That is NOT American!
