Military chaplains shouldn’t have to choose whether to serve God or the army, but according to Sue Fulton, that is exactly what they must do.
Fulton is the chairwoman of the U.S. Military Academy Board of Visitors and in the New York Times Sunday magazine, she states that “what people fail to understand is that chaplains give up some of their rights as ministers when they become military chaplains. . . Some chaplains argue: ‘My first responsibility is to God.’ Well, if your responsibility is to God and not the Army, you need to get out of the Army.”
We can only wonder at what point in the nation’s history it would make sense for a woman in this kind of responsibility to say, let me quote, “Well, if your responsibility is to God and not the Army, then you need to get out of the Army.”
We’ve been watching the moral revolutionaries adopt a take-no-prisoner approach. Now it’s evidently a take-no-chaplain as well.
