And all the Democrats said, "Amen!"...
Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan, Archbishop of the Diocese of New York, closed the Democratic Convention last night with the very faith largely absent among Reformed chaplains in the Armed Forces today. He explicitly prayed in that Glorious Name of the Only Lord Jesus Christ. He also explicitly prayed for the protection of those "inalienable rights bestowed upon us by You," and went on to say, "we ask Your benediction on those waiting to be born, that they may be welcomed and protected."
It is such love for neighbor and faith in Jesus Christ by church officers down at the city gates that R2K men explicitly oppose. Why is it always the Roman Catholics who are faithful to our Lord's commands that we are to be salt and light? Why are they the ones out there testifying to Christian faith?
An officer in the PCA and a branch of our Armed Forces told me he chose to forgo the normal invocation and benediction given at the transfer of command in his branch of the military because he could not find one Protestant chaplain (including PCA chaplains) who would pray... in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. This man is crying out against R2K's gelding of Reformed pastors. What am I to tell him? To check out the Roman Catholic Church or Eastern Orthodoxy? At the end of our conversation, he pointed out that Orthodox chaplains are required by their church to pray Trinitarian prayers.
PCA chaplains have no such requirements.
And what do you think about the hypocrisy of all those bloodthirsty Democrats responding "Amen!"?
