Lost Liberties: Prayer in Military Restored (For the time being…)


A liberty was lost… but now is found. The military leadership was blind, but now they have partial sight.

As ridiculous and unbelievable as it sounds Navy Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt was court-martialed recently for praying “in Jesus’ name” while in uniform.
null Here’s the good news though, as reported by the Christian Examiner:

“Navy and Air Force chaplains may invoke the name of Jesus when praying, after Congress directed the military branches to rescind their “non-sectarian” prayer policy.” Click here to read the rest of the story!


  1. I’m not sure if I translate the word “chaplain” correctly (I’m Norwegian), but it sounds strange if someone with a pastoral duty, military or not, is not allowed to pray in the name of Jesus – while still allowed to pray!
