Gov. Timothy Kaine of Virginia has affirmed his support for a new statewide policy under which state troopers serving as chaplains will not be allowed to pray "in Jesus name," explaining that he can pray "without mentioning Jesus."
"I would never do anything to inhibit anybody's religious worship. It doesn't diminish my ability to worship my God, to pray to the Father or the Lord without mentioning Jesus Christ," he said.
As a result, a coalition of pastors from a wide range of Christian groups and church denominations across the state is planning a rally Nov. 1, just three days before the fall elections, to protest the move that resulted in the resignations of six of the state's 17 trooper chaplains....
Gov. Kaine first needs to read Romans 1:16,2 Timothy 1:7-9,1 John 2:28. Gov. Kaine is a Roman Catholic and does not know the Jesus of the Bible. Put the eyesalve on, the police are enforcing godless laws, our churches and nation are in bed together. The falling away is here. This nation is wicked and evil and they do not want us Christians around.
Obviously the Governor does not realize as Christians, when we pray we come to the only true God through Jesus Christ His Son.
To ask one to pray without mentioning Jesus, our intercessor, is without logic. We must pray for the Governor that he may understand why Christians pray using the name of Jesus. For we ask it in Jesus name AMEN
‚ÄúGovernor Kaine campaigned like a Christian to get our votes. But now, instead of governing like a Christian, or respecting his own chaplains‚Äô First Amendment rights, his administration forced the resignation of five police chaplains, simply because they prayed publicly ‚Äėin Jesus‚Äô name.‚Äô These five chaplains lost their jobs for honoring Christ. They‚Äôre heroes of the faith, because they refused to deny Jesus when ordered to by the Kaine administration. If they contact me, they will be honored through my web-site: www.PrayInJesusName.org . And now Governor Kaine pretends he‚Äôs the martyr, because we question why his administration forced them to resign for praying to Jesus? He‚Äôs still got a job, they don‚Äôt. Governor Kaine isn‚Äôt the martyr, he‚Äôs the persecutor.‚ÄĚ
Citizens are urged to call Governor Kaine‚Äôs office at 804-786-2211, to insist the chaplains be reinstated and the policy reversed, and also email him through his web-site: http://www.governor.virginia.gov/AboutTheGovernor/contactGovernor.cfm" Former Navy Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt,who was also fired in 2007 for praying ‚Äúin Jesus name‚ÄĚ in uniform
