Reap What Ye Sow

Today, the Washington Times has an article decrying the dearth of chaplains in the military.
The Army Reserve and the Army National Guard have about 440 openings, while the Army has 80 vacancies. Col. Dolinger said it is more difficult to recruit chaplains into the reserves than into active duty.
If you wonder why this may be so, perhaps you can read about what happened to one military chaplain, recently.
"When I said a prayer in front of the White House, it was a bona fide religious observance," he said. "If this is my crime, then I am guilty of praying in Jesus' name."
Yep. This Christian Minister had the audacity to say "Jesus" when he prayed publicly.

Maybe this will help them figure out why a few others have declined to join. Perhaps they prefer to pray to their God without restrictions.

Haven't they got enough to do? This is way beyond my comprehension. The world is getting more crazy by the minute.

I shake my head.
