ChaplainIn what should be an outrage to EVERY American, Barack “No Pork Chops” Obama is threatening to arrest military chaplains who hold religious services during the government shutdown.

There is a new decree from America’s dictator–because of the government shutdown, of course–that military chaplains who hold services during the government shutdown might be arrested. Can’t have military men and women praying to god, when god is not funded, and preparing for his next vacation.

As reported in the Daily Caller, this edict prevents chaplains from having services even on their own time:

“With the government shutdown, many [government service] and contract priests who minister to Catholics on military bases worldwide are not permitted to work – not even to volunteer,” wrote John Schlageter, the general counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services USA, in an op-ed this week. “During the shutdown, it is illegal for them to minister on base and they risk being arrested if they attempt to do so.”

I mentioned that it’s one thing to try to hurt the taxpayer.

But to USE the people we hold dear, which in this case is the military and military chaplains, is reprehensible.

    Separation of church and state???

    • djmdgo

      The so-called “seperation of church and state” was to protect the church from the state…Jefferson’s letter to the Baptist Church made that very clear. This phrase has been so twisted and taken out of context it’s pathetic!

      • donna dunlap

        Exactly right and the church needs protection from the state!! freedom of religion dictates that the service personnel have a right to worship led by their chaplains. The state has no right to take that away as a punishment to Americans. If they couldn’t pay them, that’s one thing but to threaten to jail them if they volunteer!!!! That reeks of a special kind of vindictiveness.

    • Robert Rush

      Church and state were seperated long ago nothing to do with the President

  • jeffrazier

    If Obama is going to act like a juvenile brat that we should treat him like one. He needs to be arrested.

    • Robert Rush

      The brats are those bastarrds in congress go arrest them

  • Nonya

    I dare obama to say this to muslims

  • donna dunlap

    I am neither military nor a priest. I will volunteer to go and deliver the word to the soldiers. There are soldiers and laymen everywhere who can deliver a sermon and if the Chaplains aren’t allowed to serve they should immediately apply for a free ride home.

    • Linda Heilman

      Great!

  • Jack Halligan

    Have all these Chaplains sign up and serve and they can preach till the cows come home. But as Gov’t employees who are deemed ‘non-essential’ by their employers (the military they work for) they can’t provide services on Gov’t property. Nothing is keeping them from celebrating mass at someone’s personal home or public park if it is legal to do so.

    Otherwise make them ‘essential’ personnel.

  • Lavonne Massie

    I would face Jail time rather than dis obey God….Obma claims to be a Christian
    yet he is saying if you follow God’s Will I will arrest you….The end times are coming to pass.

    • Robert Rush

      Gov shutdown includes everthing run by the gov

  • Michael Yates

    During the English occupation of Ireland the Catholic Church was also forbidden. The Priests held mass in the hills and valleys. Come on you clergy, stand up for God against this petty tyrant. People wake up, it is not going to get better.

  • Jack Halligan

    Have any of you read anything regarding this issue besides this one solitary article? Because this article is incredibly misleading. Obama has ‘decreed’ nothing of the sort. It’s a law that’s been in place for over 30 years. And its effecting ALL Gov’t employees deemed ‘non-essential’, not just Catholic priests.

    Why you are allowing yourselves to be led around the nose by this inaccurate non-sense I will never understand.

    But if it makes you feel any better Congress stepped in and passed a measure asking the DOD to ensure that military chapels will be open for business.

  • Shel

    Please check facts. This article is entirely misleading! As if the POTUS has time or inclination to personally dictate something of this sort! It’s just “shutdown policy” and nothing more. Kindly read the info at this link: http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/shutdown.asp

  • Janet Graff

    You need to check your facts. This is not an accurate report.

    Obama is a mean little man who closed the parks to make sure that this shutdown hurt. There are still park police there to ensure that the public doesn’t have access to the memorials. So yes, I do believe that meetings were held in the Oval Office to find ways in which money could be cut most noticeably, and the republicans blamed. Meanwhile, the golf course at Anderson AFB, where OBlama plays, remains fully staffed and ready to serve him should he fancy a round.

    • Jack Halligan

      They are most likely contract folks and not Gov’t employees. So the shutdown doesn’t initially affect them, much like the workers at the gym on my nearby military base, which is why its still open (and I doubt Obama goes to this gym). But I know that distorts your view of the world so please feel free to discount these facts.

      • SomeGalNTx

        Park police are govt employees. The same ones who will be staffing the amnesty rally at the Mall today. The same Mall that was barricaded off to everyone else yesterday.

    • Robert Rush

      The congress dildo’s closed the parks with their goverment shut down state parks are run by the core of ingineers

  • Zach Cage

    Wrong. Facts are good when trying to report news, perhaps try that next time.

    • Kevin Jackson

      I’m not NEWS, I’m OPINION. And at least mine are ORIGINAL!

    • SomeGalNTx

      So the Archdiocese has it wrong too. Somebody better let them know,

  • joe kscir

    First an not least this should be addressed by our supreme court. To make this an order is a total abomination to our country and what we stand for. If he was a true leader he would have his pay stopped to show everyone he is the leader he says he is as well as all of congress.

  • DAVLifeMember

    Nice headlne liar. Read the OpEd, at least it’s truthful.

    • Kevin Jackson

      It’s “inference,” Moron. Not a lie.

  • Rudy24

    For the Republicans to force this shutdown, and then complain about what is shut down using the military and veterans as a front is (I’m trying to think of a $64 word), but it’s wrong. I’m insulted as a veteran to be used like this. Yes, the Democrats share some blame, but the tea baggers started this mess and are trying to take the attention off of them.

    Febreze only covers up the smell but does not change the fact that these people are full of poop.

    • Kevin Jackson

      You’re an idiot if you blame Republicans for shutting down monuments. It’s the arrogance of Obama, and yes, Febreze doesn’t cover the stench of a president who’s full of crap, as are those who support him.

  • marine1

    Then by God you do it OFF base and on private proprty and let this idiot in the white house violate their first amendment rights

  • Dr Lopez

    Rudy24 are you really this naive to believe that Obama cares about our veterans young or old? You say you are a vet a combat vet? I think you do not understand the the baggers as you put it our Americans from all walks of life,races and religions. You sound like a far left whack job. Why has the military allowed spineless hypocrites deny our men and women who serve to preserve free speech walk all over the constitution. What has happened to the character of this country’s leadership? let us stop being cowards and step up and support those who support our Constitution and the bill of rights. The MRFF is nothing more than a terrorist group. We now have a president that clearly hates this country and has shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that he hates anyone who disagrees with his warped narcissistic mandates.

  • Mark

    Unless President Obama repents, I would hate to be in his shoes on judgment day.

  • Jacobb Chapman

    Let them pray!

  • The happy warrior

    The best thing that could happen would be to hold religious services and be arrested. This would send a message as to how evil the tyrant is. I pray that the chaplains take this opportunity to do what is becoming more apparent each day. The dictator must be stood up to before it is too late.

  • mudguy1

    Thanks Obummer. The only thing you haven’t lied about “Fundamentally Transforming America” America now has more proof that you DON’T love America, and never did.

  • shearwater

    This administration is odious, does not recognize our strong history of belief and trust in God, and is making a deliberate attempt to savage all those hallowed traditions that made our country great. President Obama makes no bones about this not being a Christian nation. That’s all well and good to express his attitude. But please allow us the opportunity to continue the civility and grace we have brought for those of us who are lovers of America and it founding principles but continuing our free moral agency to believe and think what we wish, and, as well to share those beliefs with others. This, after all, is a country based on freedom of speech and of the press.

  • Danganbeg

    Apart from the fact that this is a lie, surely talking to imaginary invisable people should be actively discouraged.

  • Co2

    Only a traitor would order this. Speak a foreign language? Use it in prayer.
