PIJN: TELL CONGRESS TO PROTECT MILITARY CHAPLAINS RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

Congress must to oppose immorality and pass both PRO-CHAPLAIN AMENDMENTS to H.R. 4310!

We the undersigned petition that Members of the House of Representatives co-sponsor and vote to pass  both pro-chaplain amendments to H.R. 4310, and protect military chapels, chaplains' and troops' religious freedom to oppose immorality.

Congressmen Akin and Palazzo have both introduced and the House Armed Services Committee has passed two Military Religious Freedom Amendments in H.R. 4310 that would protect military chapels from desecration, and protect our troops right to a sacred worship space.

The two amendments do three things:

1) Protect military chaplains from being forced or pressured to participate in any ceremony or function that is against their conscience or religious beliefs.

2) Protect all our men and women in uniform from being discriminated against because of sincerely held religious beliefs opposed to homosexual marriage or homosexuality.

3) Prohibit the use of military facilities for homosexual marriage ceremonies.

Our founding fathers would roll over in their graves if they had learned that Congress did not protect the religious rights and consciences of American chaplains and troops. 

We stand with leaders from The Pray In Jesus Name Project who will score your vote and fax it to nearly every pastor in your state before the next election.

Our forefathers warned us of this happening in our nation. That is what separation of Church and State really means, that government will not interfere with the freedom of religious practice. A chaplain is a religious entity, to silence them is against our constitution and bill of rights. WE THE PEOPLE........

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." The first amendment. Read it for once!

Chaplains should have freedom of speech and ability to state that something is against their denomination's beliefs.

"Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" Military chaplains who serve God and country with great love and fear of dishonoring their Lord and Savior should not be asked to compromise. The chaplains put their lives on the line to serve and their faith and call to serve in obedience should be fully respected by the military. The constitutional freedom of religion guaranteed to all citizens should be equally available to all who serve this country in the military.
