    Sweet, simple, easy.
    The Chaplain doesn't have a "mission" except to say that he provides spiritual and emotional guidance to troops. They don't leave the wire, they don't carry a weapon, in fact, they don't do much of anything really. They don't have tactical or strategic authority. Sure, they're an officer, but that doesn't mean ****. They don't give orders, they don't impose discipline, they're just a Priest in a uniform with a shiny thing on their collar.

    Go to Afghanistan and try preaching liberalism and see how far you get with your head still attached to your shoulders.

    Can you imagine preaching homosexual marriage or some other liberal cause. Like pornography, sex with everything on two legs. Or even four?

    And the leftists whine about a bible or two.

    I'm not a leftist. That sort of quick designation is only made by stupid people who have to fit people into preconceived categories for easier dismissal of point. The problem with our MILITARY handing out bibles and spreading Christianity is that it's against the rules of our military. We can not use our military as a militant arm of religious conversion. That is wrong on so many levels, and outlawed by the military. They can not do it, it's against the rules, it's not proper action for the military. The military is not an arm of your Church, it is the standing army of the United States of America. It fights not for gods, but for the American People.

    No, you need to get over it. You are arguing for people breaking the rules. Ironically enough in your first paragraph you were being all smarmy saying "rules don't apply to the left" and here you are yourself arguing that the rules don't apply and I should get over it. Hypocrite much? You get over it. The military is FORBIDDEN from proselytizing. Read that slowly so you understand. The rule is that the military can not proselytize. End of story.

    Then send missionaries. You can not use the US military.

    You're not doing anything good. You're trying to reinstall basically theocracy, and that's not good. You can not use the US military to proselytize. If you want to do that, send missionaries. The US military does not enforce the will and laws of gods; if protect the American People.

    I wouldn't hold it against him. Besides, he's no cream-puff.

    They absolutely do have a mission to provide ministry to our service men and women who want it. They also have conduct restraints and any goal of converting foreigners in foreign lands while "on duty," would be a conduct violation.

    Can you be a bigger hypocrite? It would be tough...you'd have to try, but maybe. You bitch about how the left doesn't think that the rules should apply to itself, and now you're trying to excuse yourself from the rules only because it supports your cause. Jesus. The rule is the military can not proselytize. That's the law, those who have broken it can be punished.

    Just as I thought. You don't have a clue what you are talking about and your mod envy is making it hard for you to sit still.
