Congressman goes to bat for chaplains ‘under attack’ by US military

Does the Obama administration understand what it is that military chaplains do?

A Georgia congressman appeared on “Fox & Friends” Sunday to explain why he came to the defense of a chaplain who he said received a “letter of concern” because he cited his Christian faith during a suicide prevention training session at the University of North Georgia in November.

“I think right now what we’re dealing with is people who claim to be tolerant are actually the most intolerant, especially when they have beliefs they truly don’t believe in,” Republican Rep. Doug Collins told his Anna Kooiman.

“Chaplains are there for everyone, whether they have faith or no faith, and the chaplains need to be able to operate under their own faith background and also operate within the military. And right now they seem to be under attack for doing just that.”

Kooiman asked Collins what the danger was if military personnel are told they can’t pray when they are in a trying time.

Outrage! Judge hammers white victims of armed home invasion for racism, lets criminal go free.

“We’re in an environment where our military needs to always be at the top of readiness, and readiness means not only physical well-being but also mental and spiritual well-being,” Collins said. “And so that’s why it is important that chaplains are able to continue their role in the guidelines that have already been set forth.

“What you have now is basically a minority group that says this shouldn’t be part of the military,” he said.
