KS's "imprecatory prayers", HMMPH! Prey pray ... I will repeat, prey pray. Yeah, yup ... I am a non-believer, an atheist. A science guy. "Show me the damn evidence, Bro!" Mikey is our tip-o'-the-spear. I have dealt with the VA Chaplaincy mostly - ALL 10 of 'em are Xians in the very large VA Med Ctr in La Jolla, CA. They have a $1,000,000 yrly budget and the compensation alone ranges from $70,000 t0 $100,000 per annum. A very nice subsidy from govt to religion, AHEM! -- Xians. They have no productivity reports, keep no statistics that that FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) can tease out. We have NO IDEA just what the hell they do from a basic business sense? I conclude that just from what I have seen in that venue that the feedback I get about the xian proselytizing in the regular military service is every bit as true as what Mikey has lanced out. I TOTALLY SUPPORT Mikey in his work. FYI, it was the Rev. Billy Graham that - thru the weak spines of three POTUS's - managed to link PATRIOTISM WITH XIANITY. If patriot, then xian; if xian, then patriot. If not ... NOT xian, then (maybe not or) 1/2 way patriot. Sad. Shameful.
WHOOPS! Please add in my previous comment the word "religious" ... "getting the RELIGIOUS organizational chart(s) & budgets for any &/or all branches of our military plus the VA?"
Will someone join me in getting the organizational chart(s) & budgets for any &/or all branches of our military plus the VA? I have been trying for some time now and can't seem to get an answer from anyone on my requests. What is the BIG SECRET?
I think the country should be able to shine a flashlight on the above information. I also am attempting to get any & all "activity measures" utilized by Head Chaplains/ Administrations for the chaplains who clock in and do their thing. How is their "productivity" accounted for? This is of special interest to me (and many of my acquaintances) because of the high suicide rates.
Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you come up with any answers or advice.
I attended West Point from 1960-62.
