Facebook post

 Military chaplains and all others have a right to post religious comments on Facebook per religious freedom and freedom of speech. 

 
   There are vulgar, unkind, inflammatory, offensive (to name a few ) words and comments on Facebook every moment of everyday. 
Don’t read it if you don’t like it. It’s what I do.

For your information, the US Constitution, American law & US Armed Forces regulations 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.

I don’t see why this would make you so angry. There are many things that are evil that exploit people and hurt people. These are clearly good and loving people…. Maybe someone else was uplifted by it…and it gave them hope.  It certainly is not hurting anyone.. not to mention anyone can post on Facebook even chaplains.
