What do chaplains do if they refuse to behave in a class teaching them to minister to a multi-faith community? Sue the class for kicking them out

http://religionclause.blogspot.com/2013/11/two-conservative-chaplains-sue-va-over.html

 

Of course, FOX and Breitbart are spinning it as their rights being infringed.  Brietbart completely omits the reason why they were kicked out (bullying non-Christians and disrespecting all the other faiths present in the room). Reality is chaplains are required to minister to people of multiple faiths, and are not allowed to force one religion onto someone of another religion just because they got stuck with them by luck of the draw.  After repeatedly disrupting the class and refusing to follow the curriuculum, they were thrown out, and are now suing for discrimination.

This ties in directly to the SCOTUS case about prayer in town meetings I posted last week, and how you cannot, in a government capacity, push one single faith on a multi-faith group.

Is telling someone they cannot assume everyone is Christian and explain things to them by citing Christian scripture in a clinical setting, or lead a public prayer to a multi-faith group with the words "in Jesus' name" the same as " intolerance of mainstream Judeo-Christian beliefs"?

  • Just more of the persecution complex in action here. The bullies crying bully because they don't feel like the social code obligates them, too.

  • while the examples given sound like the instructor wasnt a ray of tolerance sunshine herself, i dont doubt these two men were bullying their classmates. ive met plenty of these types and they are aggressive and annoying. what i dont get is how they are in the military as chaplains if they are so intolerant to other faiths. you'd think they would have been reported a problem in other situations.

    its stupid to think the military is all Christian, but its a pretty common thought. i argued with a guy on another site a few weeks ago b/c he said the Treaty of Tripoli doesnt count, only what the service men & women think counts (dealing w/ the Christian Nation fallacy). to which i responded "you think all the military is Christian!?" and stopped wasting my time. i really wish these types would open their eyes and see how their behavior is against Jesus and makes them look like douchebags.
