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.

Homosexuality is a product of repeatedly stepping over the boundaries in imagination and practice. It is not the result of genetics, as demonstrated by the fact that there are homosexual men whose identical twins are straight. Homosexual desire is stirred by the same process that causes other wrong desires. Why should we cater to those who stubbornly defend their profligate ways? Why should we bless as natural what flies in the face of all reason? Who is so foolish as to defend what God himself calls sin? This isn't hard to figure out. Homosexuality is wrong, and those who call it wrong are not the problem. Those who discriminate against people of good conscience and godly moral persuasion are the problem. The most kind and considerate thing you can do for a person who is hooked on any kind of immoral behavior is to tell him the truth.

The office of Chaplain is not a political function..It is men doing God's work among those in places where life is uncertain...they are not subject to mens' pleasures...They are representing the Almighty God who is sovreign over his created beings. Take the bonds off and do not trespass on God's domain .
