OBAMA DIRECTED ASSAULT ON CHRISTIANS CONTINUES: Military chaplains harassed, mocked for quoting Scripture during chaplain training

Those who serve our country often greet reveilles before the sunrise. They don the uniform. They represent our country, and they continue to make sacrifice after sacrifice. With the onslaught of government intrusion on religious freedom, some of them are dealing with egregious attacks on their personal faith.

A legal group on Friday filed suit on behalf of two military chaplains. According to the suit, a supervisor with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)mocked their Christian faith, repeatedly, during a chaplain training program.

Retired U.S. Army Maj. Steven Firtko and U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Dan Klender began the Clinical Pastoral Education Center program at a San Diego VA last year. Shortly after, they say the program's supervisor, Nancy Dietsch, began harassing their beliefs.

According to the suit, she told them they could not pray in Jesus's name, and she shouted: "Do not quote Scripture in this class!" while pounding her fists on her desk.

"No American choosing to serve in the armed forces should be openly ridiculed for his Christian faith," (attorney for the chaplains) Wells explained. "That is most obviously true forchaplains participating in a chaplain training program."
