Why are you judging that their motives are evil or self-fulfilling?
I don’t think this is the case.
Putting the pieces of the puzzle togehter. Its called analysis. I spent my time in the military and can actually think of the military in a non-abstract way.You tell me why there should be an influx of existing priests(between the lines) who want to go into the military services directly after they get rid of ‘Dont Ask, Dont Tell’. Especially, when the services are a turn off for most anyone else after this. Read between the lines! The article does not state any motivation whatsoever on the part of those finding the military services all of sudden ...very attractive. I’ve been receiving material for the last few years from the Archdiocese of the Military Services bemoaning the lack of vocations. The war hasn’t ended!
