Victory -- Virginia Governor Restores Jesus-Prayers by Police Chaplains

MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- The Governor of Virginia Bob McDonnell has restored the rights of six State Police Chaplains to pray publicly "in Jesus name," reversing the policy of his predecessor Governor Tim Kaine who forced the chaplains to deny Christ or resign from their jobs.

"This victory comes after our two-year campaign for Jesus name," said Chaplain Klingenschmitt, who led a 1,000 person rally outside the Governor's mansion in 2008, then submitted up to 15,000 petitions to reinstate the chaplains jobs and free speech.

"We faxed voter guides to 2300+ Virginia pastors last summer, comparing Bob McDonnell, who campaigned for chaplains rights to pray in Jesus name, to his opponent Creigh Deeds who voted against Jesus prayers in the Senate. Those pastors helped us move the polls from 47-44% before our faxes, to the 59-41% victory for McDonnell on election day, because of this issue."

Now that McDonnell has fulfilled his campaign pledge, the six chaplain heroes including Rex Carter and Mike Honaker, who had turned in their badges rather than deny Christ, will be invited back to their chaplain jobs, and given free speech to pray "in Jesus name."
