Original story and chaplain's OpEd piece if anyone's interested in reading it.

Personally, I think the CH Reyes did an excellent job of 'walking the line' of not declaring a necessity for any 'religious' faith in his opinion piece and the JBER Cdr was in error in not standing up for what he said and his right to say it.


Chaplain Ordered to Remove Religious Essay From Military Website
“Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of (another)… There are just some kind of men who – who’re so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.” - To Kill A Mockingbird (Atticus Finch)

“Almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so.” - Robert Heinlein
