There’s just one problem — the Pentagon policy doesn’t say what he says it says. Does that make sense? If not, it’s business as usual for Roy.
Roy Moore joined the cause of a Navy chaplain today by protesting a Pentagon policy they believe prohibits clergy in the military from using sectarian prayer in military events outside of a chapel.
“We’ve got to recognize that the law does not forbid our chaplains in the military, in the Air Force, in the Navy, from praying in the name of Jesus. Indeed it contradicts our entire history and our law and it should be stopped and this president is responsible if it is not,” Moore said in a press conference on Pennsylvania Avenue outside the White House….
…A Navy spokesman said chaplains who volunteer to give a prayer at a non-religious service, such as a promotion ceremony, should give one that is non-sectarian because of the diversity of religious beliefs in the audience.
“There is nothing in this policy that strictly forbids praying to Jesus. It’s just not in there. It is fair to say that we ask they be inclusive,” said Lt. William Marks.
If Roy does manage to defy the current polls and win the Governor’s race, we can expect more of the same. Roy believes freedom of religion means his freedom to shove his religion down our throats.
