N.C. police chaplains told not to invoke Christ in official prayers | Secular News Daily

Chaplains offering prayers on behalf of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department in North Carolina have been told to stop mentioning Jesus’ name in official invocations.

The policy has been in place for about one month, according to the Charlotte Observer, and it applies to police events such as academy graduations, as well as for promotions and memorials.

Maj. John Diggs, head of the department’s volunteer chaplain program, said any clergy member who doesn’t want to offer a nonsectarian prayer won’t have to, and an alternate chaplain will be found for a given event, the Observer reported.

It appears the department is trying to be sensitive to everyone, which is a step in the right direction.
