    http://www.nbc4.tv/news/9158214/detail.html

    Note Bolded part - I have NEVER heard of such a directive from DoD - yes, Soldiers/etc, can't demonstrate WHILE In uniform...but is there a rule governing HOW a Christian chaplain would pray?

    those don't show the 'official policy' as 'one cannot pray to Jesus' as the first article suggests.

    Ok. They do lead you to believe that there is a policy, however. Unless it's just a conspiracy. Which I suppose it could be. Is there a policy? I'm pretty sure there is. Do I have it in front of me? No.

    That's my question - I've never before heard of a "regulation against praying 'to jesus'"

    Regardless, it sounds like the guy is in trouble for subordination more than praying to Jesus. He was told not to show up, and he did, in uniform. Seems pretty clear to me.
