Chaplains for Atheists?

By The Price of Business (1110 AM KTEK, Houston, TX is the sister radio program of US Daily Review and is Hosted by USDR Publisher and Managing Editor, Kevin Price).
Former LT Gordon Klingenschmitt is best known for being reprimanded and fined $3,000 for disobeying an order not to wear his military uniform at a protest. Klingenschmitt was honorably discharged from the Navy in March 2007. The chaplain disagreed with a policy that required him to offer non-sectarian prayers at Navy command functions (essentially public, military-wide and often mandatory). Congress later rescinded the same policy which was enforced at Klingenschmitt's trial. The Navy no longer requires chaplains give only non-sectarian prayers at command functions.
Now Klingenschmitt brings to light an effort to have chaplains for atheists! It is an incredible story, one in which we discussed on the Price of Business.
