TOPEKA, KS – After several months of closed-door negotiations, the Chaplain Corps of the U.S. Army has announced that they have finally reached an agreement with the Westboro Baptist Church that will allow its members to serve officially as military chaplains.
2LT Jacob Phelps, a member of the Westboro congregation who was already serving as a non-denominational Christian chaplain, has been officially inducted into the Chaplain Corps. Phelps is himself a pioneer: the first member of his congregation to serve in the U.S. Army.
“I admit it was a little unusual,” Phelps chuckled, “growing up protesting at *** funerals for *** soldiers in their *** army. But after a while I thought, maybe the reason they’re such baby-killing scum is they haven’t been exposed to the good word of the Church and the love it preaches.”

this would be a precurser to the military getting rid of all chaplains.

no other reason to put this bad apple in the ranks unless your purpose is to stain the whole bunch

this is NOT a real news story



/fify


Jacob Phelps, a member of the Westboro Baptist Church, was appointed as the first member of the WBC to become a chaplain for the Army. In a report dated Jan. 4, his appointment was made after several months of private negotiations. It wasn't until the end of that report it was revealed that it never happened. Jacob Phelps is not an Army chaplain.

The Duffel Blog reported this joke as straight, serious news on Jan. 4. Readers didn't know until the end of the report that it was a joke. Jacob Phelps is not an Army chaplain and there wasn't any closed-door negotiations to get him approved as an Army chaplain.

if you actually read the article you know it's fake. heh.

UPDATE: Army officials have confirmed news that only minutes after arriving in Afghanistan, 2LT Phelps was killed after his MRAP hit a several-hundred pound IED on the flight line at Herat Airfield. The Army is investigating why no one else was in it at the time.

His congregation announced plans to picket his funeral immediately.
