AF Chaplain under fire

Further proof of the erosion of this countries moral compass. Only one opinion that counts in this country, the opinion of the offended. Of course no one cares if this BS offends any of us.

Well, I had my first "DADT Repeal" briefing in a base chapel whilst mobilizing
Moral compass you say? Their moral compass is so f'd up that they couldn't lead a penny to a whore house.

Hate speech? Wow. That may be the dumbest effing thing I've ever read. I disagree with the good Chaplain, but that certainly doesn't make anything hate speech...I will say, though, that I find the concept of a country having a 'moral compass,' kind of confusing. People have moral compasses, and most morals are completely subjective...so for a nation of varied individuals to have a moral compass is just...confusing...

If, however, we decide that a country should have a moral compass, decided based on its adherence to the ethics or morals required by a given religion, then I'll say this country's moral compass was gone long before any of us were born...and it had nothing to do with Chaplains...

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.

Agree. I thought his piece was fair and balanced. I wonder if the situation had been reversed and an atheist wrote an opinion on why there was no God. If Christians had then complained, would the piece have been pulled?

I was pointing out that their moral compass is so screwed up, that even when they head in the direction of malfeasance, they can't even get that right. Clear as mud?
