WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON HERE? - POLITICALLY
© 2014 MilitaryCorruption.com
COL David Fivecoat has been complaining about not being promoted to flag rank despite his 21 years on active duty and a West Point diploma. What a whiner!
Now the "politically-correct" skinhead may have hit upon a sure way to grab the Pentagon's attention and ensure himself a set of shiny, new brigadier general stars.
Just show the "powers-that-be" what an efficient automaton you are by bowing to a complaint by the Devil-worshippers and Satanists over at the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers.
Surely "Bath-house Barry" and lame-duck Hagel wouldn't disagree with that.
KNEE-JERK REACTION TO HALF-ASSED COMPLAINT
It seems a soldier in the 5th Ranger Training Battalion at Fort Benning, Ga. didn't like what his Army chaplain had to say, so the G.I. filed a complaint with the aggressive pressure group.
As quick as you can say "political correctness," COL Fivecoat, commander of the Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade, was preparing a career-ending "letter of concern" for former enlisted man and now senior chaplain, CPT Joseph Lawhorn.
The colonel complained Lawhorn had "advocated Christianity" and "used the Bible" during a counseling session.
Fivecoat was in a dither because "during mandatory training," Lawhorn was perceived to have promoted Christianity and "used Christian scripture and solutions."
Oh, my God! What the hell is a Christian chaplain supposed to do?
THE CHAPLAIN SCREWED ON PROMOTION
Anyway, Fivecoat warned the captain: "You, above all others, must be cognizant of the various beliefs held by diverse soldiers . . . you must be careful to avoid any perception you are advocating for one system of beliefs over another."
The bad paper placed in Chaplain Lawhorn's personnel file will stay there for up to three years, or until he leaves the command. Since the padre had been up for promotion to major just before the shit hit the fan, place your bets, dear reader, that Fivecoat will be rewarded, and Lawhorn screwed.
This USMA (Class of 1993) graduate may be PC all the way, but he's also a flaming idiot.
