Navy policy prohibits chaplain from praying in Jesus' name
An Episcopal priest is taking a stand for righteousness and should be supported. Lt. Gordon James Klingenschmitt is refusing to eat until the president takes action to allow him and other chaplains to pray in the name of Jesus.
Klingenschmitt is an Air Force Academy graduate who transferred to the Navy three years ago to be a chaplain. His contract was recently renewed, but the Navy is still preventing him from praying in the name of Jesus while in uniform. The chaplain is now fasting until he is allowed to wear his official uniform while praying a Christian prayer in public. "If I pray in Jesus' name in public, I have to wear civilian clothes," Klingenschmitt stated.
Let us pray for this man who is in battle to restore Christian liberty to military chaplains. Please contact the White House and tell President Bush that chaplains must be able to be free without the threat of termination to pray in the name of Jesus Christ.
"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)
