Courts Martial and the Chaplaincy

Reader comment on item: Pentagon Jihadis

Submitted by Yahya Bergum (United States), Oct 2, 2003 at 19:25

Assalamu alaikum / Shalom Aleichem / Peace be with you.

In my opinion, Christian and Jewish chaplains should be held accountable for not having ministered to Muslim personnel who were clearly in need of ministration. Chaplains are officers - who are presumably charged with the defense of our nation - are they not?

I feel that it's unacceptable for our officers to rely on our enemies to minister to our airmen, sailors and soldiers. I suspect that our chaplaincy is putting the defense of their religious doctrine ahead of the defense of our nation. If I'm in error then I apologize for having slandered individual members of our chaplaincy.

May the Lord of the worlds protect the members of our armed services. May the Lord of the worlds grant wisdom to our leaders. May the Lord of the worlds will that our nation be increased in virtue. May the Lord of the worlds will that our armed forces achieve victory - for the sake of the Lord of the worlds. Ameen...
