Another Petition.  Another attack on Christianity by the libertines.  In this instance, it is an attack on military chaplains and their ability to pray according to their faith by invoking the name of JESUS in their prayers.  It would be ludicrous if it wasn’t so serious.  That’s like saying you can pray, but you can’t mention GOD or any Supreme Being.  Or, the only allowed way to mention Christmas is as Xmas.  It seems, prejudice is acceptable if it is aimed at Christians.  Mail the following petition to:

President George W. Bush    
%The White House
1600Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, D.C. 20500

Or, I will mail them as a group if mailed to me at:

Christian Gunslinger
P.O. Box 481
Morton, Illinois 61550

Thank you.


To the Honorable President George W. Bush

We are disappointed and gravely concerned to learn that the right of military chaplains to pray according to their faith is in jeopardy.

It has come to our attention that in all branches of the military, it is becoming increasingly difficult for Christian chaplains to use the name of JESUS when praying.  We believe this suppression of religious freedom is a pervasive problem that must be dealt with and eliminated immediately.

Throughout our nation’s history, chaplains not only have remained an integral part of our military, but they also have always prayed according to their faith’s tradition.  We believe that if chaplains are chosen to pray before a professional setting, they have a constitutional right to adhere to the religious expressions of their faith.  Furthermore, such censorship of Christian beliefs is a disservice to Christian chaplains as well as the hundreds of thousands of Christian soldiers in the military who look to their chaplains for comfort, inspiration, and support, just as our military soldiers of other faiths look to their chaplains.

We respectfully request that you, as Commander in Chief, protect by Executive Order the constitutional right of military chaplains to pray according to their faith.  Thank you Mr. President.
