The Washington Examiner recently reported that the U.S. Navy has rejected the application of Jason Heap to become the Navy’s first Secular Humanist chaplain. They rejected it even though the Navy chaplain advisory board recommended approval. But 45 House members and 22 Senators wrote the Navy opposing approval.
Senator Richard Wicker, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the appointment of an atheist to the role of chaplain would be “fundamentally incompatible with atheism’s secularism.”
If someone in the service wants to see an secularist chaplain just tell them to find a Jesuit. (I kid. I kid.) ((Sorta’))
