    This Episcopalian is showing more courage than a lot of Baptists, IMO.

    These verses come to mind as I read that article-

    Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Timothy 4:2-4)

    I think we have already arrived -- these verses are being fulfilled before our very eyes!!

    Praise the Lord for those who will publicly protest such hypocrisy--even if he is an Episcopalian!! Yes, this Episcopal priest has more courage than alot of Baptists!!

    I found out a little more about the good LT.

    What started his problems is the kid on his ship who was upset over not having enough Kosher meals onboard. The kid wanted off the ship and it was apparent he would do and try anything. Some say the LT knew this and was helping him to get off the ship, and some say he was duped into helping someone get away with not keeping his word (contract). And as is so popular today, the LT got into trouble (he was cautioned by the CO) who in turn, blamed the Navy for something else.

    This isnt about him being allowed to pray. Its about him doing something stupid to start with.

    I think the LT needs some time in the *mental ward with an IV and visits from career counselors to help him transition into civilian life.

    *because it is generally considered unstable thinking that you would force THE PRESIDENT into something by creating unnecessary drama of a hunger strike. There is more than one way to skin this thing. He is just out for 15 minutes of fame.

    I don't know about the 15 minutes of fame, but I will say that things are not always as they appear.

    "In Jesus' name" has become a mantra which activates God.
