Military Prayer Amendment Defeated

Lord, we ask that leaders would not give into these pressures, instead they would stand boldly for righteousness. Move on the hearts of our leaders to unite for the purpose of establishing TRUTH and light in the midst of opposition.

After pressure from church-state separation groups, House leaders rejected Rep. Michele Bachmann’s amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, which would’ve allowed chaplains to insert their personal religious beliefs into non-religious events.

The provision called for “Protection of the religious freedom of military chaplains to close prayer outside of a religious service according to dictates of the chaplains conscience.”

Joseph L. Conn of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State wrote that the government currently bars sectarian prayer outside of worship services and that if the amendment passed, it would violate the religious freedom of military personnel.

One Response to Military Prayer Amendment Defeated

  1. PJ Gildernew says:

    Whatever happened to not going to a particular service if you don’t believe what is being said? Why is it that everything has to be ok with everyone? Even in today’s church people don’t like what their pastor says especially when it comes to sin, and so they find another church. Why can’t soldiers who are so highly trained figure out what they do and do not want to listen to?
