A Navy officer, Captain Honors, has been relieved of command over inappropriate videos that he created and broadcast to subordinates some years ago. But now the investigation has expanded to include what his commanding officers, including the captain of the ship. (As I understand it, at the time Honors was a Commander and XO. Possibly the videos were part of the XO’s traditional job of maintaining morale.) And the officer who was captain of the ship at the time? He’s now a Rear Admiral, and specifically the Rear Admiral who appeared at the National Day of Prayer, illegally in uniform.

When people on the Religious Right talk about wanting Christian leaders, and pray for Christian leadership in the country, is this what they’re talking about? Lewd and offensive videos circulated to 6,000 people? When will the Religious Right collapse under the weight of its own hypocrisy?
