US: "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition"

John Heelan says: "I am grateful to Philip Terzian for his additional information- perhaps he already knew the identity of that chaplain (Lt (j.g.) Howell Forgy, aboard the U.S.S. "New Orleans"). Having dealt so soundly with an inconsequential matter, perhaps Philip would care to comment on the more important questions (in my view) subject of my note. Given the unethical behaviour of the Archdiocese of Boston, how reliable are the ethics of its sister Archdioceses of the Military during wartime? Are the Muslim clerics in that Archdioceses? If so, do they have a conflict of interests in regard to Al Quaeda and Iraq? Is the Archdioceses in reality just another quasi-branch of the Administration?"

RH: The Archdiocese of the Military is Roman Catholic.
