Peter sat down and did an interview with disgraced and dishonorably discharged former Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt the other day. If you want to listen to it, and why would you, knock yourself out. [Apparently Klingenschmitt talks about the time he performed an exorcism on a lezbeen! This is hilarious, because Fundamentalist Christians think their religion is for grown-ups, when it is obviously little more than a particularly bizarre precursor to Dungeons and Dragons, only with more childish fear in the mix.] I only seek to call attention to the fact that Peter is likely well aware of the fact that Klingenschmitt has been lying for years about why he was discharged, but in Jesus’ name, Peter continues to pretend the lie is true. Here is what really happened to Gordon Klingenschmitt, according to his former boss:
“I was the dishonored ex-chaplain’s supervisor for the past 2 years,” Holcomb wrote in his message. “I found him to be totally untruthful, unethical and insubordinate. He was and is contemptuous of all authority. He was not court martialed for praying in Jesus’ name. I sent him out in uniform every week to pray at various ceremonies and functions. He always prayed in uniform and in Jesus’ name. He was never told that he could not pray in Jesus’ name. In fact, the issue of prayer had nothing at all to do with his dismissal from the Navy. He disobeyed the lawful order of a senior officer. I am sure that you understand that Navy Regulations forbid any of us, regardless of rank or position, to appear in uniform in support of any political or partisan event.”
Holcomb goes on to say, “He appeared in direct support of a political event, demonstrating contempt for the order of his Commanding Officer and Naval Regulations that we all swear that we will abide by…. The ex-chaplain is a man without honor and you have accepted his story and in doing so you have had ‘the wool pulled over your eyes.’
“A man without honor.” This is to be expected in an interview subject by the leader of a very small hate group. Now here’s Peter spreading the disgraced and dishonorable toad’s lies further:
Chaps is founder of the “Pray in Jesus’ Name Project,” named after his much-publicized struggle to pray in Jesus’ name in public and without restrictions as a U.S. Navy Chaplain — which cost him his career in the service.
Nope! Liar, liar pants on fire. It’s too bad wingnuts are so focused on five or six Bible verses they think are about homosexuality, when the commandment against lying is so clearly staring them in the face. Disturbed and dishonest…that’s a winning combination. It’s also why we’re winning.
