U.S. Navy Chaplain Lt. Asif Balbale

This may come as a surprise to some, but not all chaplains in the military are of the Christian faith.  From Catholic, to Mormon to Muslim and even Wiccan, chaplains are a diverse group of various believers that provide counsil and spiritual guidance to service members worldwide. U.S. Navy Lt. Asif Balbale talks to a military reporter about the importance of being a Muslim Navy chaplain and visiting Muslims around Afghanistan.

    Muslim Chaplain is an oxymoron. Consider the following defintion:
    — n a Christian clergyman attached to a private chapel of a prominent person or institution or ministering to a military body, professional group, etc: a military chaplain ; a prison chaplain Chaplain is rooted in the Christian faith and was seen as such when this country was founded.  I have never met one Christian Chaplain who was out of Army uniform policy.  However, I have seen muslim “Chaplains” like the clown above wearing their little hats as an exception to the rule. I have also seen them sporting full beards! As officers, shouldn’t they present themselves as someone for their troops to emulate? By the way, where is all the press on Muslims condemning other muslims for acts of terror? Thats right, you don’t see that. Silence by the muslim community is their consent. Islam is a dangerous doctrine that must be confronted.

    Wiccans are not authorized to have chaplains in the military.
