Police Chaplains Banned From Using “In Jesus’ Name” During Prayer


The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has banned chaplains from praying “in Jesus’ name” during public events.
It’s offensive.
The Blaze reported:

Volunteer chaplains in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have been banned from using Jesus’ name during prayers that are uttered during public events.

Rather than serving as a discriminatory practice, the new policy is intended — at least according to Major John Diggs who oversees the chaplain program — as an effort to respect people of all faiths.

“[It’s a] matter of respecting that people may have different faiths and that it is not aimed at any one religion or denomination,” Diggs told WSOC-TV.
