US Military “WOKE” Policies Destroying Traditional Chaplains’ Role

Army Chaplain Chad Booth brings to light the US Army’s 1999 Chaplain Training Manual ST 16-158 to expose the destructive and demoralizing changes in character training our Service Members have faced over the decades since then. There are dire real-life consequences of turning Chaplains into no more than “good luck charms” across all US military branches: suicides, domestic violence, declining morale, declining retention, and failure to meet recruiting goals.

In 1999 and decades before that, the Military Chaplain was a key person focused on developing character within our Service Members and assisting them in understanding the meaning, purpose, and significance of the nation they serve and their role. As the 1999 Army Training Manual said, “…the character guidance program is concerned primarily with the problem of developing within the individual soldier and airman a sense of responsibility so that he can be depended on for his word and in his job.”

This Chaplains’ Training Manual also gave Chaplains the duty to teach the foundational principles about THE NATION WE SERVE. This session focused on discussing the nature of our country in light of its official attitude as a nation toward religion and morality. The Army’s objective was “to persuade the soldier that a) there is a certain kind of moral greatness in the history and traditions of our country; b) this makes service and sacrifice in defense of our way of life worthwhile. The soldier needs to understand and appreciate our way of life as described in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. I. The Significance of “Nation.” A. “Nation” as a geographic term. B. “Nation” is an ethnic and cultural term. 1. A national community. 2. The U. S. as “one nation.” 

The Army Chaplains’ Manual describes the duty of Chaplains to teach the “Kinds of Nations, According to the Moral Yardstick.” 

A. The secular nation eliminates God from public life. Examples given were Uruguay and France. 

B. The demonic nation displaces God by Government itself. The Army gave the examples of Germany and the U. S. S. R. C (former Soviet Union). Today was can add China, North Korea, Venezuela, and others.

C. The covenant nation recognizes God and the need of His Providence: In some “covenant nations,” State Churches are used to express this relationship, such as the Anglican Church of England. 

Chaplains were given the responsibility to teach how America differs as a “Covenant Nation” based on these core differences:

A. No State Church. No requirement to be a member of a particular church to hold office. 

B. Other evidence the Army provided to show the moral foundation of America: 

    • Oaths of office, 
    • Public coins with “In God We Trust.” 
    • Mayflower Compact
    • John Adams
    • Declaration of Independence
    • The Northwest Ordinance
    • The President’s Message to Congress on the State of the Union, January 1939. Special considerations are given to Churches. 

All of these core differences between America and other nations have been what makes a sacrifice in the defense of our way of life worthwhile. Remember the respect and honor America has shown to those who served our Nation, particularly as exemplified by the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the reverence with which military members guard the Tomb, night and day, in all kinds of weather. 

These are the honorable traditions the Army’s new training instructions for Chaplains are seeking to undermine. Many of our Military Chaplains are concerned about this ominous direction of moving Chaplains into training soldiers to be “spiritually resilient” to be a better weapon of war than to focus on being a better person serving a moral nation.

Cowering Under China’s Spy Balloon – CCP Mission Accomplished

Cowering Under China’s Spy Balloon – CCP Mission Accomplished

It is clear that America’s weak response to the clear intrusion of a Chinese spy balloon into U.S. airspace was exactly what the CCP was hoping for. Instead of taking a strong position against the intrusion and bringing the balloon down at the earliest possible moment, we showed ourselves to be unable to decide what to do, even when our national sovereignty has been challenged…

Having The Courage!

The Tom Renz Show – The left has made it easy to push lies. They have bought the media and censored people on social media, so if you want to be a Grumpy Greta Thunberg and push the climate change lie, you will be lauded. If you want to do what I do, however, you will have endless hit pieces come out on you and find yourself censored everywhere…

Controversial Bill Would Allow Prisoners to Donate Organs for Reduced Sentences

Controversial Bill Would Allow Prisoners to Donate Organs for Reduced Sentences

The National Organ Transplant Act, passed in 1984, criminalizes giving or receiving any human organs for “valuable consideration.” Medical ethicists contend the program would put a literal price on freedom and, even while voluntary, would prove inherently coercive in practice. So what do you think? Good idea to let prisoners receive reduced sentences by donating their organs, or bad idea?

Molnupiravir (Lagevrio) made by Merck is Driving Mutations of the COVID Virus

Dr. Paul Alexander Liberty Hour – If you have ‘silent’ undiagnosed COVID vaccine-caused myocarditis, and you engage in activity or some activity that drives increased adrenaline, the evidence indicates that this adrenaline (catecholamines) can stress the heart that is already damaged, and this can cause the heart to behave abnormally and can lead to death…

A Cure Worse than the Disease; Historic COVID Death Crossover

The so-called cure has turned into something worse than the disease. This message is inevitably difficult for many people to accept. How could this happen? How could the majority of physicians be willing participants in this awful tragedy? They keep pushing COVID vaccines even though substantial medical research has shown the mRNA vaccines to be both ineffective and unsafe…

“Look, Boss, The Balloon, The Balloon;” America is in the Hands of Complete Nincompoops

Inadvertently or not, exposing government stupidity to the sunshine of common sense, i.e., the failure publicly to make a decision about what to do about that damn balloon, only contributes further to the Americans’ loss of confidence in our federal government’s ability to protect us, this time it’s the Dept. of Defense, led by a retired affirmative action general…

Help Us and Support Arizona SB 1250 to Protect Healthcare Workers from Coerced Vaccine Mandates

Nurses Out Loud with Jodi O’Malley MSN, RN – As it stands now, health workers at Medicare and Medicaid-certified facilities are required to have at least their first dose in a primary series of coronavirus vaccinations in order to provide care, treatment, or services. What sense does this make when they’re not considered fully injected, and we know the injection is a failed experiment that doesn’t stop transmission or infection?

Arizona Corruption, Katie Hobbs Belongs in Jail

Arizona Corruption, Katie Hobbs Belongs in Jail

The Tom Renz Show – If we the people, don’t stand up to this, we can kiss our elections goodbye; our votes will never count. This election was stolen, and the evidence is as clear as day. The lower Court’s rulings in Arizona were so egregiously wrong in all three election cases that they border on unethical, in my opinion. Kari Lake’s case is one of the strongest election cases…

My Journey to Jesus – Life in the Dig Pit

My Journey to Jesus – Life in the Dig Pit

I was not particularly mad at the kid. He’d simply made a mistake. But at the same time, it was a mistake that had very nearly cost another young soldier his life, so it was a mistake this young man needed to learn from. I started giving him a very stern talking to, when all of a sudden, the kid reached into a pocket, and very flippantly hands me a…
