Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

Well I guess that it doesn't say the military can't do it.

If need be, have the bishop provide emergency replacements and do it offship.

At Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, the DOD went so far as to lock up the chapel and sequester the Holy Eucharist inside it.

Yikes. Even the tabernacle is not immune to the barrycade.

It sounds as though without the magic wine, bread and the waving of the padre’s arms, none of these Catholics think they have a chance of going to heaven anymore. Perhaps they should read the Bible and notice none of this is necessary...if Jesus draws one to Himself. Time to swim the Tiber the other direction...if they can.

" The Kings Bay Chapel remains open to other faiths and is being used for their religious services," says the lawsuit. "The Department of Defense has allowed the Protestant community to continue their services in the chapel during the government shutdown, without threat of penalty."

Well, isn't that nice...

We are in SC babysitting for our three grandchildren who attend a catholic school. Tonight our first grader came home and when I checked her homework for the night, one if her assignments was to say three HAIL MARYS for President Obama. I would love to know why.

Too bad Hagel and Kerry didn’t need priests to take their last confessions in Viet Nam.

The put Barrycades around the Body of Christ?

The last people to do that were the Romans.

He can sue, but military chaplains are often made of extremely strong stuff. Being locked out of a church, no problem. They can conduct services about anywhere they like, in muddy trenches, POW camps, in the middle of a battle, you name it.

Sure, they can sue, but if they want to be remembered and toasted as gentlemen of character by their congregants, they need to rough it. Having to tough it out is also great for their congregants spiritual morale as well.

It reminds everyone involved that this is important.

Until CBS and NBC and ABC carries this story instead of just CNS sadly it won’t mean anything.

I’m glad that the priest is fighting it. But truthfully, if the church had any balls they would simply disobey the orders and have mass and sacraments without the permission of the military commanders.

Hold mass outside on the lawns of the chapels for God’s sake. Let’s see some real, genuine civil disobedience here. The legless vets had the stones to tear down the BarryCades and dump them in front of the WH. And the priest and church *sue*?

Screw Obama, screw the base commander, screw the Provost Marshall and screw the MPs. When I was growing up Catholic clergy practically brought down despotic governments with their protests and civil disobedience.
