Good News on the Military

Timothy Birdnow

Two good pieces of news this morning.

First, President Trump's Pentagon has rejected the application of an atheist to be a Navy chaplain

Conservative HQ dishes:

. Our friend Dr. William Scott Magill of Veterans in Defense of Liberty and principled limited government constitutional conservative Republican Representatives Doug Lamborn (CO-5) and Vicki Hartzler (MO-4) led the Navy Chaplainsfight to deny outspoken atheist and secular humanist Jason Heap’s appointment to the Chaplain Corps.

Lamborn and Hartzler rallied forty-three Members of Congress to support the position that fundamentally, the chaplain corps is a religious institution that should ascribe to the religious needs of men and women in uniform. An individual with an avowed opposition to religion itself cannot fulfill the mission and duties of a chaplain, no matter how accomplished the candidate may be said Reps. Lamborn and Hartzler."

End excerpt. A chaplain is a religious adviser, not a philosophical activist. This was the right move. Or are atheists now willing to admit they are a religion, and as such they can no longer be granted the special privileges they have demanded over the last few years?

And then there is this:]/link]

"The new memorandum says that transgender individuals with a history of gender dysphoria are barred from military service "except under certain limited circumstances".

The Department of Defense (DoD) had submitted a report to the president which said allowing those with a history of gender dysphoria to serve entailed "substantial risks" and could, by exempting them from existing physical, mental and sex-based standards, "undermine readiness... and impose an unreasonable burden on the military".

It said the Obama administration's decision to allow transgender individuals to serve in the military was largely based on a 2016 study by the Rand think-tank, which "contained significant shortcomings"."

End excerpt.

These are people suffering from psychological illness and physical disability. They have no right to demand the U.S. taxpayers fund their transition, and they have no right to expect to be put in a position with high stress, with access to deadly weapons, and with high incidents of suicide and stress disorders. It is unfair to the transsexuals, unfair to the taxpayers, and a danger to the military.

Good for Trump and Sec. Mattis! We do not need corporal Klin
