Treatment of Christian chaplains versus Major Hasan

Posted on 04/13/2011 3:24:33 PM PDT by cradle of freedom

Why is it that Christian chaplains are not allowed to pray in the name of Jesus Christ but jihadi Major Hasan was allowed to stay in the military even after he issued violent gruesome threats against nonmuslims?

How about because everyone who came in contact with him, who could have done something about it, valued their careers more than protecting the troops.

Boy, does that have a familiar ring to it.

The way gubmint agencies get rid of screw-ups is to promote up and out. Then they become someone else’s problem.

Even newspaper reporters investigating what became known as the Walter Reed Scandal failed to report what Hassan told them ~ leaving everybody in the dark.

At the same time the same reporters raised plenty of cain about the commanding officers there who were relieved of command over some bad plaster jobs and inferior painting on walls on a building scheduled for demolition.

Oh, and the guy who goes after the chaplains (a secular Jew I believe, deep into much of the worst atheism has to offer) seems to not be concerned how many Christians the Moslems kill or injure. He's a regular scumbag.

Your first premise is false. There is no restriction on Chaplains praying in Jesus' Name. The chaplain that alleges that was kick out of the Navy for appearing at a political rally in uniform after being specifically ordered not to do so, by an Admiral. [BTW - that is a long standing rule, not something that was imposed upon him individually] Not being allowed to pray in Jesus' name is a ruse to divert attention from his wrong doing.

The nine officers were in Hasan’s chain of command at the Walter Reed Medical Center and the military’s medical school. Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, allegedly showed signs of Islamic radicalization that were ignored by superior officers.

There was a thread on this recently.

Because the name of Jesus is very offensive to the damned. They know that their judgement is coming and they don’t want to think about it.

Because you have to grasp how utterly PC the military has become. The military leadership have become the lapdogs of PC pressure. Its been going on for the last 40 years. Being Christian is not PC

Underlings often complain about crazy, evil bosses, whether in the military (I suppose) or the private sector. But management almost always looks the other way until something dreadful happens. I’ve been there and seen it happen.
