Gun control requires so much faith in the face of statistics, data&history it should be a religion.

My guess is they were told they would need a sponsor and pass to get on base, and couldn't just drive or stroll on. Of course going on base without a pass would probably result in...arrest.

Cue face palm and relax.

This is a new fiscal year, so the new contracts (FY14) are unfunded.
Since we can't pay the contract we can't demand the services.
The government is also legally prohibited from accepting donations of services that are contracted but unpaid.

The priests, or organ players, or anyone else for that matter aren't going to be arrested. There's no authority to arrest.
If they do "get arrested" someone is not reading/following the law/their orders correctly.

The military chaplains who run the various chapels have already been directed they cannot accept donations of time and labor so they wll largely manage chapel access.

BLUF: Contractors with a contract start date of 1 OCT are not authorized to perform work. They are also NOT authorized to provide a gift to the government of their volunteer service. This includes musicians, DREs, and Catholic Contract Religious Ministry Professionals (CRMP). The "Excepted" category includes suicide and substance abuse counseling, other activities authorized by the Secretary of Defense to provide for the safety of life or protection of property" and "Emergency counseling and crisis intervention intake screening and referral services." "Generally speaking, contract for faith specific religious services (including music/religious education/weekend worship) do not fall into the above category because contractors are not first responders and there are uniformed Chaplains/Religious Program Specialists available to provide pastoral care and support in the above situations."

While you can hold services, chapel contractors are not authorized (even if they are willing to volunteer their services) to support your services or religious education.

Can't allow someone to volunteer to perform work if they have been contracted to perform the same job. It's illegal, believe it or not.

That said, those in CONUS could always, you know, go to a Catholic Church out in town.

The restriction only applies to those that are current employees, either contracted or GS. It is the exact same restriction for all furloughed federal employees. A local Catholic priest who is not a DoD employees would not be prohibited from volunteering his time. The problem, though, is what to do where there aren't any that can do this.

Obama didn't order it. Congress is the one who makes these rules And GD is the place where people were chearing this on. Now, it seems like everyday a new "well, we didn't mean that" exception pops up.

That is just total bullshit.

I can just see it now. To the badly wounded soldier on the litter, "I'm sorry son, I wanted to pray with you but my contract just ended and they won't let me pray for you for free"

That is what that amounts to.

This is all true.

If the services were/are contracted for, by law you cannot offer those services for free or donate the. You will be arrested.

This is only the case because the .mil is contracting out to the church for the services. It's a contracting law issue, not an Obama issue, other than the fact that they have been listed as non-essential. Obama actually doesn't have any say in it, it's the law.

Quiet you! We're rabbling here and grabbing pitchforks! Didn't you read the strawman in this thread that said if a soldier is wounded in combat and someone tries to pray with them Bareefer Obonghit "B-Rock the Islamic Shock Superallah" HUSSEIN will personally fly in and behead them as part of his jihad?

I don't know if that is true. because there is a cvontract in place with a contractor, I don't believe the Govt can accept any donation of those contracted services from anyone. It would be a violation of the contract with the original contractor as well.

If they do "get arrested" someone is not reading/following the law/their orders correctly.

The military chaplains who run the various chapels have already been directed they cannot accept donations of time and labor so they wll largely manage chapel access.

You're assuming their contracts are new and or haven't been funded with isn't necessarily true.

Curious - in any previous shutdown has this ever been applied?

Could not find it quickly, but will post this picture as it is funny enough. What I did find was this is an issue noted from advice of council - not necessarily a military ruling.

So these pictures might be as realistic.

BLUF: Contractors with a contract start date of 1 OCT are not authorized to perform work. They are also NOT authorized to provide a gift to the government of their volunteer service. This includes musicians, DREs, and Catholic Contract Religious Ministry Professionals (CRMP). The "Excepted" category includes suicide and substance abuse counseling, other activities authorized by the Secretary of Defense to provide for the safety of life or protection of property" and "Emergency counseling and crisis intervention intake screening and referral services." "Generally speaking, contract for faith specific religious services (including music/religious education/weekend worship) do not fall into the above category because contractors are not first responders and there are uniformed Chaplains/Religious Program Specialists available to provide pastoral care and support in the above situations."

While you can hold services, chapel contractors are not authorized (even if they are willing to volunteer their services) to support your services or religious education.

It's no different, legally, than the guy contracted to cook food, clean heads, mow the grass or take out the trash.

Thre's enough herp derp with all of this without creating more things to get in a snit about.

No it doesn't. I won't say that your post is the dumbest thing I've read all day, but it's in the top 3.

Because there is worldwide shortage of Catolic Priests.

There is a chronic shortage of active duty Catholic chaplains. While roughly 25% of the military is Catholic, Catholic priests make up only about 8% of the chaplain corps.


There are sufficient uniformed Chaplains of other faiths.
In order to supplement the military contracts Catolic Priests to perform services.
So a Priest from a parish in the area is contracted by the military to travel to the installation and perform Mass.
Some may travel overnight to do this at a very rural installation.

Right now there is a shortage of Priests in DoD. Not sure why that is, but the services have had to contract for Priests due to the shortage.

Other Christian faiths have adequate representation in the Chaplain Corps right now, so only Catholic Priests are being contracted for.

I'm not assuming anything.
FT14 starts on 1 Oct 2013.
A mutli-year contract is still funded year-to-year.
FY14 funds have not been released.

There is nothing in the Constitution that says church and state must be separate, that was an article in the federalist papers IIRC. The only thing that the Constitution says is that there cannot be a "state" religion.

Probably because they are the only ones who take a vow of poverty, and wouldn't feel comfortable making Major or LtCol pay like all the other god squad does.
