Fort Drum

Dear Mikey,
Regarding the remarks posted on Facebook by Captain Amy Smith; Major Scott Ingram to which you objected, they are military chaplains at Fort Drum doing their job, and expressing their First Amendment rights. They are trying to bring some solace to those who believe in a transcendent goodness during this time of temporal crisis. You are an intolerant fool and provocateur at a time when we need calm.

Please be advised 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 religion version as official military religion on official military channels. That is why the unlawful practice was stopped by the military itself after complaints from military members, including Christians.

    It is the Republican Party and their right-wing followers that are the intolerant fools and provocateurs.
