Huffington Post: Most Captivating Photo of Navy Baptism at Sea
Chris McGonigal of The Huffington Post — not precisely a bastion of conservative values — posted a list of “The Most Captivating Military Photos From August 2015.” The first one out of the chute was of a baptism at sea conducted on the USS George Washington:
Lt. Cole Yoos [of the] Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73), and Lt. Brian Kirschenbaum, a Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 5 chaplain, baptize Aviation Structural Mechanic (Safety Equipment) 2nd Class Ryan Norton, from Minto, North Dakota in the baptismal pool on the ship’s flight deck during a baptism-at-sea.
Better not let Michael “Mikey” Weinstein see that. He thinks such displays of religious freedom like baptisms on the flight deck of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier are propaganda for terrorists. That means, of course, he wants them banned, along with other religious expression with which he disagrees.
On second thought, we should make sure Mikey Weinstein does see it. Despite his vitriolic hatred of all things Christian, he can’t do anything to prevent US troops from exercising their protected religious liberties.
