Even in our military, Jesus and Christianity is under attack. Most of us can only pray that God gives us the strength to do what this man is doing.

NORFOLK, Va. Lieutenant Gordon James Klingenschmitt has a new three-year contract as a U-S Navy chaplain, but is continuing the water-only fast he started a week ago Tuesday.Klingenschmitt says he’s been ordered not to pray publicly in the name of Jesus while he’s in uniform — and won’t eat again until he can.
He’s urging President Bush to sign an executive order that would let all military chaplains pray according to their beliefs rather than being restricted to generic prayers.
Klingenschmitt is a chaplain at Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia.

Please join me in praying for this Godly Man.

    Unbelievable! Why do we have chaplains in the military if they cannot pray for help from God? What are they praying for if not asking Almighty God for help? If I am not mistaken each dog tag list the religious preference of each particular soldier – why make these boys list their religious preference if they arent able to be counseled by a chaplain who is of the same faith? What on earth are these military leaders/law makers thinking? It is complete and utter stupidity. The job of chaplain is obsolete if they cant invoke the name of God in prayer for their men. GOD HELP US!!!

  2. That is so true Beth. I don’t understand it either. Even if one ignores the religious aspect, it defies common sense. More of the world falling away from the will of God. Yes Lord, Please Help Us!
