    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Christians In The Military

Do Christian troops have a right to separate shower facilities from homosexuals? Do Christian military members have the right to separate sleeping quarters? Do they have the right to not be sexually harassed on the job by somebody who’s hitting on them? Is it OK to be openly homosexual in the military, but not openly Christian? Chad Groening writes:

A former Navy chaplain has launched a petition drive aimed at defending military chaplains and Christian troops from persecution by proponents of homosexuality.

In December, Lt. Col. Stacy L.

  1. You know what as Christians and none Christians, we seem to worry about the wrong things in life.we are so worried about if someone that is in a war zone standing next to you in the shower is a homesexual or parading around acting like some wierdo.That same homesexual that you are sitting up here complaining about might be the same person that saves your life.It is not up to us to judge any.But as a man of God I am here to help everyone,regardless of race,religion, or sexuality. Before you start trying to get the sawdust out of other people’s eyes pull the plank out of your own eye. Because of Jesus we live by a new covenant. So instead of putting that homesexual soldier down why don’t you walk up to them and say thanks.They are in different countries fighting the same war that you are putting thier lives on the line everyday.You are no better than them.So wake up people.We are the ones tearing America apart instead of helping to make it strong again.And the only way we can do that is TO GET OUR LIVES RIGHT WITH God.


  2. That is a very good point. If homosexuals can be open, then Christians should have the same rights and freedoms, and I know I would not want to shower with homosexuals. Why don’t they allow men and women shower together.
