Religious Liberty

Todd Starkers:
An Army chaplain’s assistant said she was accused of creating a “hostile and antagonistic” environment after she posted a message on her personal Facebook page calling homosexuality a sin.

The soldier, who asked not to be identified, said her commander ordered her to either remove the Facebook message or face a reduction in rank and pay.

“I haven’t taken it down and I won’t take it down,” she told Fox News. “It is frustrating that people are trying to silence me – for something that I believe in. We fight for the freedom that I can’t enjoy right now. That’s not right.”
Who will stand up for this tradition of anybody in the army being allowed to say whatever they like at any time?
Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, shares Hudnall’s concerns.
“Just because a person wears a uniform does not mean they give up their religious liberties and their ability to speak about matters of faith,” Crews told Fox News.

Not to mention good ol' Gen. Jerry Boykin, USA (ret.) who (against regs) wore his uniform while talking about how mighty his Gawd was compared to Allah.
