The new religion guidelines are only one page, about a third the length of the earlier interim guidelines. What was taken out was largely the specifics that had troubled groups like Focus on the Family. Stars and Stripes sums up the response this way: “Civil libertarians say the document goes too far — shifting its focus from protecting airmen from religious persecution to protecting chaplains’ rights.” Apart from saying it’s “too far,” that’s pretty much what the evangelical groups are saying, too.

Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., who has been pushing for more religious freedom for military chaplains, says he still wants more explicit recognition that chaplains can pray in Jesus’ name.
