I want you to ponder something for me. We can all agree that we must make sure that as a Navy at War - we must do all we can to support the warfighter - especially those who are coming back broken, or for those families who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Can we find common ground there at least?
Now, shouldn't we make sure our finite ADOS/ADSW dollars and funding, along with limited availability of 4105 Chaplain Corps Officers, are first spent attending to our Sailors and Marines needs in theater? Or perhaps attending to the needs of our thousands of wounded warriors?
What, pray tell - is more important than that? Of course, don't be silly. Warfighting priories are for the little people. First of all, everything must feed a 4-star's fetish.

Sad how the Chaplains, of all people, have been roped in to being active participants in discriminating on the basis of race, creed, color and national origin.
Where is their intellectual courage?
