Christian Speech Removed From Facebook

Me Weinstein. As a Korean veteran and Catholic chaplains assistant during my term, I object to your unjustified bias against the service chaplain’s right to voice their beliefs. I know from experience how important chaplains are to the military and you have no right to interfere with their important work. Try reading our constitution. It will give you what you need to know to properly exercise your jou without infringing on others fights. Thank you and God Bless.

First & foremost, thank you for your military service.
 
For your information, the US Constitution, American law & US Armed Forces regulation prohibit our secular military, as part of our secular government, from promoting or endorsing a religion except in military chapels or military chapel channels. Military chaplains may not proselytize their version of religion as the official military religion on official military channels. That is why the unlawful practice was stopped by the military itself after military members, including Christians, complained.
 
Most Sincerely,
Brigadier General John Compere, US Army (Retired)
Disabled American Veteran (Vietnam Era)
Board Member, Military Religious Freedom Foundation (over 80% Christians)
