    Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them make and female. Your gender was decided upon by God in the womb. Are you your own god to say this isn’t so? What is a progressive Christian? Calvert is right in saying that whoever doesn’t believe like him is a real Christian. 2 John 1:9 KJV
    Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.

    God loves all! “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:113-14)

    Crystal: The verse does not say that God matched the mental and physical gender. It does not say that He didn’t make someone male with female genitalia. Who are you to limit what God can do?

    Male and female… so both genders at once?
    Good to know.
    P.S.
    Bible is not a biology textbook.

    Ya know what is amazing about the USA? A person can worship as they see fit.

    You know what else is amazing? No one has the right to force their personal faith on anyone else. Look it up – First Amendment; it’s right there in glorious legalese.

    It doesn’t matter a persons gender if in their heart they are a soldier, a warrior, a person who runs into the fight because yeah, they’re ‘that’ person.

    Glad beyond feelings this chaplain is facing the consequences of his words.

    What is it the party of ‘law and order’ used to say? Oh yeah, if you can’t to the time, don’t do the crime.

    To paraphrase – if you won’t face the consequences keep your trap shut. It doesn’t rhyme but it does close with a snap.

    Glad We The People have an adult at the helm of USA. We aren’t out of trouble but there is a plan. Lots of work to do.

    Let’s build a better country by being better citizens.

    Adult….in age only. Mentally…..unfit

    Marie –
    Mentally unfit? President Joe Biden? Really?

    What’s your evidence? Show your work kid because opinions are a dime a dozen while facts are jewels beyond compare.

    Obvious to me we exist in different realities; I’m fact based and you are swimming in propaganda.

    By the way Marie Hayes, I have my evidence at the ready but since you are the challenger it’s up to you to provide proof of your claim first.

    Waiting (but not holding my breath)

    This chaplain is a serving officer. Part of the oath he swore states: “that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

    If CPT (CH) Calvert cannot in good faith abide by the oath he swore to his god, then he needs to resign his commission. A chaplain is not a preacher and the unit he serves in isn’t his flock. They don’t get to choose him, and he doesn’t get the say over who serves in his unit. 90% of chaplains’ work has nothing to do with their religious affiliation.

    Soldiers do not choose who is eligible for entry into the armed service, and that includes CPT (CH) Calvert. He is no more qualified to determine who is mentally unfit for enlistment than you or me. Most Soldiers he serves could care less what his religion is, only whether he helps them with their problems or not.

    I guarantee you Soldiers hear about this in the news, on social media, etc. If he loses credibility with them, then he is useless in his primary role. In that case, he should be handled like any Soldier who refuses to do their duty.

    Members of the armed forces cannot just say anything that comes into their heads. Like it or not, that’s part of life in the service. As serving officers, chaplains are bound to adhere to Army regulations, DoD policies and directives. They also need to recognize that not all Soldiers believe what they do.

    Crystal,
    If you credit God for determining gender in the womb, do you also credit God for congenital birth defects?
    So I guess God is fond of Down Syndrome, severe deformities, Zeka children, et al.?
    Your God should be held accountable for all the suffering he causes!

  10. Ironmoped

    God’s works are wonderful, except when they’re not!
    To be fair though, he might have been on vacation when all those zygotes developed abnormally!
    You can’t have it both ways!
    You can’t say that God intervenes in the womb and not give him credit for congenital birth defects!

    Who? Trump?
    I agree.
