In America, we set our standards for ourselves.

A good friend of the family's and a former student of my Dad is a Chaplain in the Army. As a member of my denomination I can guarantee he keeps things inclusive. Just throwing that out there.

I have gone through the application process and one of the requirements is to be able to meet the spiritual needs of all soldiers and to have no issue with offering more generic public prayers. I can be more specific when giving services, but even then I would more than likely be asked to give a generic Protestant service. The only time a can really be denomination specific is when a member of my denomination comes and seeks me out.

I think overall the system works. There will always be those that push the envelope of what is expected, but most Chaplains I have known are very easy going, faithful, brave, and - dare I say - tolerant.

I wouldn't be surprised if they enjoyed fantasizing about how they would.

What would the cause they would be dying for be?

You can separate church and state, but not church and politics, unfortunately

lest anyone forget the potential for deadly violence within *some* conservative American Christians ...

[q]On criticism of the books from Christians in Britain and the United States:
"I had one letter from a vicar in England -- this is the difference -- saying would I please not put Christmas trees at Hogwarts as it was clearly a pagan society. Meanwhile, I'm having death threats when I'm on tour in America." -- J.K. Rowling[/q]

Now, I'm not a real big fan of Christianity as a whole, but I can't see where Jesus or God would object to the above prayer - after all, didn't he (or they) create all those things above listed, according to Christianity? So why, under any given pretext, would either of them be angry at this guy for praying the way he did? I mean, seriously, people, he just asked for world peace and for people to be nice to the Earth. Where's the harm in that?

You seriously ask for rationality and sense with fundamentalists?
