I was just reading an article about Retired Soldiers fighting for Pagan Rights in the Military... The article stated that "Part of the problem, according to Cooper, is that there are no Pagan chaplains in the Army, and without a chaplain, Pagan soldiers don’t have a set space to worship. Despite being recognized by the federal government as a legitimate religion, the Army has yet to budge on allowing Pagans and Wiccans their own Chaplains."
Now, I'm highly uneducated on Military anything... So my question is why the need for a Chaplain? Most Pagans I know are solitary and don't need a set space or group to practice. Is the Chaplain simply someone who will make a point to enforce equality, or is there another point?
Seriously, this is something I know NOTHING about, but it was posted on FB by one of the Equality groups I'm a member of...
