Chaplain David Wells was told he could either sign a state-mandated document promising to never tell inmates that homosexuality is â€śsinfulâ€ť or else the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice would revoke his credentials.
â€śWe could not sign that paper,â€ť Chaplain Wells told me in a telephone call from his home in Kentucky. â€śIt broke my heart.â€ť
PREACH THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH & NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH TO THE DEATH !

Any dealings with a state prison system is going to have rules regarding what can and cannot be said. Immate rape is a horrible crime and most likely Kentucky probably has a bigger problem like rape that they don't want anyone, especially a chaplain, to be told about. So the inmates can't say their being violated because it either a sin or normative practice in the juvenile justice system.
I think the issue here is---who is paying for the music here? If it is the Kentucky govt, then they have the right to follow their own rules and regulations, all of which are subject to public discussion in the State Capitol when the State Legislature meets. So the law needs to be changed to say, for example, that chaplains can be supported by churches instead of being paid by the STate.
Same rules apply to chaplains for sports teams, big companies, the military, hospitals, etc.
Go to your local hospital and look around for a chapel or chaplain to see how general they have to be. The hospital doesn't want to offend Catholics, so they may offer mass every week.
I wonder how Chuck Carlson's prison ministry is handling this issue?
Our nation is under judgment. We have many in authority seeking to rid our society of biblical influence. The very thing that set our nation apart from others and made it great. American leadership for the most part is bringing thr nation toits knees and the people lo e to have it so.
Boy, oh boy. This is no different than the hush up about the fatal diseases that sodomites contract for no other reason than the lifestyle they have chosen. Yuck. Tell a sodomite the truth, be it God's truth, or that of proven medical science, and you are accused of being filled with hate, shunned, fired...jailed. hmmm.
