US Navy Chaplain faces reprimand, loss of pay

18 September 2006: While top U.S. military leaders along with representatives of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) dedicated an Islamic Prayer Center at the Marine base in Quantico, US Navy chaplain Lieutenant Gordon Klingenschmitt was in a battle for his career for disobeying orders that prevented him from “praying in ‘Jesus’ name” while in uniform.

Although those were not the actual legal charges filed against Klingenschmitt, he contends that his expression of beliefs are at the epicenter for his trial and ultimate conviction.It is interesting that during a time when politicians and government leaders appear to be bending over backwards to accommodate the wishes of Muslims in our military and elsewhere, and demanding sensitivity for those professing the Islamic faith, a jury recommended that Lt. Gordon Klingenschmitt receive a letter of reprimand and forfeit $250 dollars pay-per-month for a year, which is the equivalent of two-thirds of his pay.

In an interview about the actions of the Navy chaplain, Mikey Weinstein, a 1977 Air Force Academy graduate and former Reagan White House official asked rhetorically, “Could there possibly be a worse time for this fundamentalist Christianity to be pushed in our military, when we’re in a war and the people we are fighting are recruiting their members by saying we’re Christian crusaders?” Interesting question.
