Wacky Newsletter from Court-Martialed Ex-Navy Chaplain

Somehow, I got signed up for a newsletter from some crazy ex-Navy chaplain. I don't know if someone reads this blog and thought it would do me some good, if it was someone I'd contacted through work who thought I'd like it (I'm the webmaster, so I contact lots of people), or if it's just plain old spam. Being the webmaster for two sites and having my e-mail address plastered all over the web, I'm used to getting plenty of spam, so I usually just ignore these e-mails.

The guy who sends this particular newsletter, Gordon James Klingenschmitt, was court-martialed by the Navy for appearing in uniform at partisan events and for disobeying orders, but then decided to whine that it was religious persecution (I don't know how Sheppard AFB compares to the rest of the military, but being outspoken about Christianity certainly doesn't hurt your career there). Not only that, but he continues to use the title of chaplain, coming perilously close to impersonating an officer (some would say he's crossed the line, but I'm still getting the e-mails, so I guess the Navy doesn't have a big problem with it).

Anyway, like I said, I usually ignore these e-mails, but the latest one from Sunday caught my eye with the word, "swine," in the subject line. I was curious to see what "Chaps" had to say on the subject. Boy, was it a doozy, and not just for his scientific illiteracy (& redundancy - avian bird flu is H5N1).

Let us pray. Almighty God, we pray for your protection this week, against the H1N1 influenza virus, formerly known as the swine flu or the avian bird flu, which is now spreading around the globe in unprecedented pandemic proportions, and killing people not only in Mexico, but in Europe and now here in America. We pray it will not develop into one of the natural disasters which Jesus predicted in Matthew 24 as a sign of the end. God do not destroy us, but forgive our sins. In Jesus name, Amen.

I skimmed through his other prayers, and this one seemed worth posting, too.

Let us pray. Almighty God, today we pray for Pennslvania, who was betrayed by Senator Arlen Specter, who abandoned the pro-life, pro-marriage Republican party to join the pro-abortion, pro-homosexual Democrat party, and for the sake of selfish preservation, put the entire nation in jeopardy of a 60-seat filibuster-proof evil majority. God help Pennsylvania elect a true conservative, and defeat Arlen Specter in the 2010 election. We pray from Isaiah 21:2, the traitor betrays, the looter takes loot. God, help us attack, and bring to an end all the groaning he caused. In Jesus name, Amen.

Wow, I wonder how many other people think like this guy, or take him seriously. I hope it's not too many.
