A modest question:

Given that the Southern Baptist Convention finally disavowed white supremacy in 1995, what would have happened if the chaplains from that denomination had raised this kind of stink back in 1948? After all it was against their spiritual beliefs which at the time stated God made the white man superior to the black man. I also wonder how long they would have had their jobs if they'd tried that kind of blackmail then. Behavior like this is one reason that I have no respect for people who prefer to be allowed to hate over doing their own jobs and fulfilling their own oaths to their country.

In my opinion this behavior is utterly and totally reprehensible and amounts to an attempt by the clerics to blackmail the government and their troops.
