Virginia Governor Tim Kaine is trying to obfuscate why he personally forced the immediate resignation of five Virginia State Police Chaplains because they, as is their First Amendment right, prayed publicly in Jesus Christ name.”
Police Superintendent Col. W. Steven Flaherty created and enforced a strict “non-sectarian” prayer policy at all public gatherings, censoring and excluding Christian prayers. When GOD fearing men chose to exorcise their First Amendment rights set forth by the United States Constitution, they were all summarily fired.
To save face, Police Superintendent Col. W. Steven Flahertyallowed the five men to offer their resignations. All for the crime of refusing to deny their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. These men are the backbone of this great nation, their faith meant more to them then their paychecks. Possible V.P. candidate Tim Kaineor supported and enforced the violate these men's faith and conscience.
House Republican Leader Morgan Griffith and Delegate Charles W. Carrico, (R-Grayson) both issued public statements defending the chaplains. The Republican leaders pointed out Governor Kaine’s role in violating their Constitutional rights, as one of willful intent. Terminating the chaplains was the priceTim Kaine paid to prove to the Democratic nominee that he held the power of the State above the United States Constitution. Republican leaders vow to introduce legislation protecting police chaplains’ right to pray according to their own conscience. ( Don't hold your breath on that promise)
Defending Flaherty’s persecution of Christian Chaplains, Governor Kaine who campaigned as a quote...'Moderate Christian' feigned to be offended. In actuality Kaine was on-board with the new persecutions because he has never been a Christian real or imagined.
For political purposes Kaine pretended he himself was being persecuted, saying through his spokesman: “It is disappointing that Del. Griffith would make such a political attack on Gov. Kaine about his faith.” In actuality Kaine was delighted that the persecution of honest Christian men bumped up his ratings in the polls.
Former Navy Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, who was also fired for praying “in Jesus's Holy name” in uniform (but won the victory in the U.S. Congress for other military chaplains), weighed in:
“Governor Kaine campaigned like a Christian to get our votes. But now, instead of governing according to this purported Christian values his administration willfully forced the resignation and FIRING of five police chaplains. All of this, because they prayed publicly in Jesus Christ's Holy name. These five chaplains lost their jobs for honoring the Lord Jesus Christ. They’re heroes of the faith, and defenders of the American Dream of Freedom, because they refused to deny Jesus Christ when ordered to by the over reaching Kaine administration.
