WASHINGTON — The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty sent a letter to the acting Secretary of the Army Robert Speer Monday about the Obama administration’s outgoing Army Sec. Eric Fanning last minute decision to sign a directive “hours before his resignation” that would give “training on implicit or unconscious bias.”
“The military exists to protect our nation, not to be used as a laboratory for social engineering-and especially not from an outgoing official’s 11th hour order,” said Chaplain (COL) Ron Crews, USA (Retired), executive director of Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, said in a statement. “This directive does nothing to increase military readiness but wastes valuable training time just to promote a political agenda.”
Fanning signed Army Directive 2017-06 (“Promoting Diversity and Inclusion”) immediately prior to his resignation on Obama’s last day as president. The directive mandates the Army to spend time, finances and personnel to develop training against “implicit or unconscious bias.”
“The secretary does not define what this so-called unconscious bias is, but we believe this is a direct assault on those Army personnel who hold traditional Biblical beliefs concerning sexual ethics,” the Chaplain Alliance letter says. “Given the variety of serious threats our military faces every day, the Army must cease from continuing such training mandates that cannot be shown to help our soldiers be better prepared for combat readiness.”
