Air Force Chaplain Awarded Bronze Star for Quran Sensitivity Training

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 13, 2013

One of the US military’s most prestigious decorations is the Bronze Star, typically awarded for acts of merit or valor in combat.  Last week the Dayton Daily News published an article titled Local chaplain played vital role in war that helps demonstrate the depth and breadth of political correctness infiltrating all aspects of society including the US military.

The chaplain who received the Bronze Star is Lieut. Col. John Trainer.  After last year’s mistaken Koran burning in Afghanistan by US soldiers, riots erupted resulting in the death of political correctness quotes political political 30.  Shortly after the unfortunate incident, Chaplain Trainer created a PowerPoint presentation that was shown throughout Afghanistan to US military and civilian personnel.  According to the military, this presentation helped sensitize US personnel concerning the importance of certain written words in the Islamic religion and culture.

While Chaplain Trainer’s work may have been productive, it is hard to imagine it rising to the level deserving of a heroes’ medal.  In addition, this type of politically correct response to Islamic violence only can only perpetuate more violent acts in the future.  The burning of the Koran in Afghanistan was unfortunate, but it was a mistake.  The riots that resulted were not by mistake or accident, but instead were typical of the type of response that’s all too often seen from the Islamic world when they feel wronged.  This cycle of violence has increased with the growth of political correctness and appeasement.  More the same will not changes in the future.
