"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Well - where is your gun?

Seriously, have you never looked at a crozier before? It's a weapon, pure and simple, designed to keep your flock from the wolves and the wolves from your flock. You got the choice here. Wring your hands, or roll up your sleeves and wade in.

Best damned CO I had, ever, was a chaplain who stepped up when it all hit the fan suddenly and he wound up senior officer. Taught me a ton about being in command - not the ordering people around stuff, but the serenity aspect and knowing your people intimately. Their strengths, weaknesses, and fears. Miss him, badly at times, even now, though he's been dead for 16 years. You could talk to him about anything at all.
