Military’s ‘Biggest Problem Is Consensual Sex’

    WorldNetDaily: “The numbers are rising, quite frankly, because an awful lot of women are now serving with men in close conditions. You now have women serving on submarines, which has never been true up until about two years ago. You have a situation where people are under stress, they’re working in very close conditions and things are going to happen,” Babbin said. “The biggest problem is not the offensive nature of sexual assaults. The biggest problem is consensual sex.”

Ecumenism in the Chaplaincy | First Things

    James A. Hamel at First Things: Last week I was sitting in my office at the chapel when one of our chaplain assistants came in and told me that an Airman was on his way in and wanted to talk with a chaplain. He wanted to know if I was available to see this particular Airman. I said that I was, but inquired further if the Airman expressed any denominational preference. “Did the Airman want to see a particular kind of chaplain?” The chaplain assistant assured me that the in-bound Airman didn’t have a preference; he just wanted to see a chaplain.
