Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt

Victory for Military Chaplains Who Pray 'In Jesus Name'

Public Advocate selects Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt as Family Advocate of the Month.

He stood for God against those who would silence the word of God.

He witnessed to those members of the Ameican family who are under orders to take orders and accept only those orders.

Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt decided God's calling and our nation's protection of religious liberty compelled him to speak up for those who could not speak up for themselves, the nation's military chaplains.

Without Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt our nation's fighting forces could not stand for God And Country. National policy with liberals in power would have left God out of that equation.

After months of fighting the Navy's "non-sectarian" prayer policy, Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt rejoiced last Friday as the U.S. Congress took decisive action to overturn recent Navy and Air Force policies that required "non-sectarian" prayers.

"Praise be to God, military chaplains can once again pray freely in Jesus name!" Klingenschmitt declared in victory. "Although this fight may have cost my career and my pension, it was well worth it, because now at least other chaplains will be given the same religious liberty I was denied."

While Senator John Warner blocked language in the Defense Authorization Act to let chaplains pray according to their conscience, Congressman Duncan Hunter held firm and secured non-negotiable language in the "Conference Report" forcing the Navy and Air Force to rescind their "non-sectarian" prayer policies.
