Apparently military chaplains have been discouraged from mentioning Jesus:
It was a First Amendment "flaps down" at the Air Force Academy when regulations were drafted to limit how Christian chaplains could interact with cadets. And since then, chaplains in all branches of the military have come forward with personal testimonies of how they are discouraged from mentioning the name of Jesus in prayer and ministry. Now Congress is stepping into the fray. North Carolina Congressman Walter Jones says they have turned to the President.

It's amazing how freedom of religion increasingly becomes simply freedom from it.

Maybe freedom from religion is what we need. That number one destructive force today is radical Islam, a religion.

Religion sometimes clouds people's ability to judge rationally, and that's the problem.
