Retired military chaplains are claiming that it will be impossible to serve both the armed forces and God if they can’t preach that homosexuality is a sin. It is the retired chaplains that are speaking out because, they claim, their active duty brethren would be open to charges of insubordination if they went public.
Worshiping another God is also a sin, but the Constitution protects those who worship another God. Are Muslims, Buddhists, and atheists to be made second class members of our armed forces because they don’t share the same faith as the chaplain?
These chaplains took an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Part of that Constitution is the right to worship other Gods. Chaplains are honor bound to support a member’s right, to sin. They knew that going in. Why are they suddenly so upset about a different sin?
This is a secular nation. A secular nation needs a secular armed forces. We must guard against turning our armed forces into an Army of God. If these sky-pilots can’t abide by their oath, bye-bye.
