  •  I served in a very secular USAF (11+ / 0-)

    in the '60's & '70's.  No proselytizing.  No fundamentalist dominionist nutcases in the US yet. Chaplains were there only if an Airman or woman asked to speak with one.  It was perfect.

    This is really bad.

      The Mormons were actually at the forefront in proselytizing military.  By the late 70s, just before I got out the Baptists were following suit.

      taxpayer funded system of proselytizing and million dollar chapels.

      If you read James Madison's On Monopolies, he addresses the fact that chaplains in Congress and the military violate the Establishement Clause. And he worried about it, as well he should have.

      Now we have the baptist chaplains laying down the law on gay rights within the miltiary (marriages etc.) and we the people are funding this refusal to follow the laws of the country and the various states.  

      I say if the baptist chaplains don't want to follow the laws, they can walk out of their government paid jobs and either go home, or have their salaries paid by their churches.
