Example text

We must return the chaplaincy to its traditional role. Chaplains should be facilitators of religious worship, not promoters of their own faiths. A chaplain’s role is to assist soldiers in discharging their reli­ gious duties. In some cases, this may involve leading a religious service, but in others, a more passive role might be played. Chaplains must be willing to work with and respect a variety of religious believers. Those who wish to engage in the elevation of one religion over all others or in proselytizing activities on behalf of their own faiths are not good candidates for the chaplaincy.

Marsh, eventually reached the Second US Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled that the chaplaincy is constitutional, since its primary objective is to ensure the free exercise of religion. indd 17 3/31/10 11:58:05 AM 18 Lynn ★ Religion in the Military have a house of worship to join. The court did not address the issue of the chap­ laincy at domestic military bases, many of which are served by nearby communi­ ties with a wide variety of houses of worship. Broadly speaking, the court af­ firmed the idea that the chaplaincy’s permissible purpose is to facilitate the free exercise of religion in circumstances where the military has put people in a situ­ ation that otherwise burdens their ability to engage in their religious freedom.

It should be made clear to them that respecting someone else’s religious choice in no way de­ emphasizes their own. A soldier can truly believe that his chosen faith is “right” and “true,” while still respecting a fellow soldier’s decision to affiliate with an­ other faith group. There should be zero tolerance for those who fail to respect the views of others or who engage in activities such as slurs or assault due to religious differences. In recent years, some public schools have adopted curriculum materials de­ signed to instill respect for religious pluralism.
