Southern Baptist Military Chaplain Conducts ‘Transgender Policy Briefing’ for Army Reserves Unit

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Concerns are being raised after a Southern Baptist military chaplain recently conducted a “transgender policy briefing” for members of an Army reserves unit that is based in Nashville—a briefing that was mandatory and was determined by the chaplain as not being violative of the convictions of Christian soldiers.

On June 23, the 304 Military Police Battalion advised soldiers that they were required to attend a “transgender policy briefing” that day.

One soldier within the unit, who identifies as a Christian and was concerned about the briefing, contacted Chaplain Capt. Erick Barrett to obtain information and spiritual counsel about the instructional period. Barrett received his ecclesiastical endorsement from the North American Mission Board, which is a part of the Southern Baptist Convention.

However, to his surprise and dismay, the soldier learned that it was actually Barrett himself who would be conducting the briefing. The soldier, whose identity has not been revealed, was even more surprised when Barrett advised that he didn’t think the training would be violative of his faith.

Barrett nonetheless passed along the soldier’s desire for a religious accommodation to Commander Lt. Col. Kim Wilson, who denied the request. The soldier followed up with a letter.

“Capt. Erick Barrett informed me that he did not believe the ‘Transgender Brief’ would violate my sincerely-held belief; however, [he] would submit my request for accommodation through the chain of command,” the soldier explained to Wilson.

“The ‘Transgender Policy Brief and Training’ requires me to participate in something that I believe is contrary to what my religion teaches,” he explained. “… I do believe that participation in such training will bind my conscience to another religion, thus violating my conscience and faith tenants.”

Wilson again denied the request, stating that the briefing was mandatory under the direction of the Army. The soldier consequently attended the instructional session against his will.

The site Barbwire has published audio of the briefing, which Christian News Network has reviewed. During the hour-long session, Barrett took those present through the Army’s new policy on accommodating transgenders in the military, advising that the briefing “isn’t about what Chaplain Barrett believes,” but rather Army protocol. He asked how soldiers can follow the policy if they aren’t aware of it.

“How many different gender identities are there in the world today?” Barrett quizzed those gathered, advising that there are 42. “Ladies and gentlemen, we live in a world where truth is defined by the individual. That’s a reality. It’s not something that’s up for discussion. That’s just the world we live in.”

He outlined, however, that the U.S. military only recognizes two genders—male and female—and that soldiers will be held to the standard that aligns with that gender. So, when a woman decides to be a man or a man decides to be a woman, they will be held to the standard for that gender.

Barrett repeatedly stated that all soldiers are to be afforded dignity and respect, and emphasized that in the Army, “We do not discriminate, we do not isolate, we do not segregate.” At one point, he remarked that for a long time, “there have been men [in the military] that look like girls and girls that look like men.”

He also provided the example of a male soldier who transitions into a woman and quizzed soldiers on whether or not it would be considered proper under Army policy for the man to now use the women’s facilities.

“A transgender soldier begins using female barracks, bathroom and shower facilities. Because she did not undergo a surgical change, the soldier still has male genitalia. Is the soldier using the correct facilities?” Barrett asked.

“Yes,” the soldiers replied.

“Is the soldier operating within Army policy?” he asked.

“Yes,” those present again answered.

Revelation of Barrett’s leadership of the briefing has generated disappointment from others in the Armed Forces, including Capt. Sonny Hernandez, who serves as a U.S. Air Force Reserve chaplain. Hernandez characterized the chaplain-led presentation as being “godless.”

“There was no reference of Scripture, God, Jesus, repentance, or faith, which would be expected of an ecclesiastically endorsed evangelical who claims to be a Christian,” he wrote for Barbwire on Saturday. “For almost an hour, Chaplain Barrett pontificated about the Army’s policy on transitioning from male to female, or female to male, and reiterated innumerable times how soldiers’ gender is determined—while God was not included in this determination.”

“Chaplain Barrett did not exercise ‘responsible pastoral care,’ since he never mentioned that transgenderism ‘is a sin that violates God’s biblical standards,’ nor did he reference ‘repentance’ or the ‘Name of Jesus.’ After listening to the audio, objective listeners would never even know this chaplain is a professing Christian,” Hernandez lamented.

The North American Mission Board has described Barrett’s decision to conduct the transgender policy briefing as being “unfortunate” and states that it will provide “clearer guidance” to chaplains about such matters for the future.

    The West is not racist anymore. Please do anything but please stop pushing homosexuality and transgenderism into the world, even for the sake of Western children. Please differenciate the skin colors and sexual depravities such as homosexuality and transgenderism. Don’t let the colored Christians go through furnace again even in the West for rejecting homosexuality this century. Enough blood-shedding by the atheists and pagans throughout the history all over the world. Western Christians, please remember how the religious freedom was obtained and do something. Christianity is forever incompatible with falsehood and immorality.

  • Grace Kwon

    Westerners must differenciate the skin colors and sexual depravity such as homosexuality and transgenderism. Homosexuality and transgenderism is the West’s brand-new form of imperial slavery upon the world in the 21st century. Please give mankind some break!

    • Stacy Sedgewood

      Skin colors, huh? Could you elaborate? It almost sounds like you’re saying that homosexuals and non-whites need to be segregated…

      • Grace Kwon

        It’s Western white authorities who started homosexual depravity’s support and Western white powerfuls who are spreading it comparing the depraved people with colored population. The rest are mimickers and mental slaves bought by filthy Western money. People should feel responsible for what their tribe is doing against mankind.

        support and Western white powerfuls who are spreading it by comparing

  • FoJC

    Too many distractions in the military. This shouldn’t be an issue. Male genitalia, male facilities. Female genitalia, female facilities. The military is caught up in social agendas and it weakens their ability to effectively do their primary job – war. Yet another example of the deepening Darkness in the USA.

    Follow Jesus, find Truth.

    • Grace Kwon

      Yes. You mean birth gender.

    • Sedagive

      Why should it matter at all? The facilities are for changing clothes, and bathing. The service members are supposed to be professional. They should be in and out, and not bother with other people. The makeup of their jink is irrelevant.

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        “Why should it matter at all?”

        you will find out one day … probably soon …….

        • RWH

          Amos, Don’t you have anything better to do than to threaten people with hell? This is a sure sign of a religious fanatic who simply implodes rather than hold a rational and reasonable argument.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            i said nothing about hell ………. what is going to happen because of this … will precede it …….

          • RWH

            You know that we’re talking about less than one percent of those who serve in the military. If anything, that one person will be hounded and harassed by a bunch of insensitive clods. With the training that military get, I wouldn’t be surprised if that one beat the living stuffing out of anyone who attempts to harass. You also seem to throw “mentally ill” around in a cavalier manner. People who are religious at the point of fanaticism are also considered mentally ill. They often claim to receive special messages from God. They also like to threaten people.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            right …. but the enemy does not know which is which … only that they are there ….. and they are not going to go down to a bunch of people they see as reprobate homosexuals and trannys ………..

          • FoJC

            The reality of Hell is part of God’s Will for those who reject Him and His Word, Jesus Christ. Your “rational and reasonable arguments” are carnal babbling. If you continue on your present path, you will find yourself in a place indescribably void of all good. You won’t be able to “adapt and overcome”. You won’t be able to find anyone to help you in your suffering. You will know in every fiber of your being that it’s completely your own fault.

            The alternative is glorious transformation into the human beings God intended us to be when He first created us, and this by the power of Jesus Christ.

            Follow Jesus, find Salvation.

          • RWH

            This is what is called the fundamentalist doctrine of papal infallibility. You don’t like someone who doesn’t toe the line; just threaten him with hell’s damnation. It may work on the Cool Aid drinkers. It doesn’t work with people who use their heads for something more than a hat rack.

          • FoJC

            Oh, you so don’t understand. I’m not trying to “bring you in line” with a false doctrine, just warning you about what will come if you die without know Jesus Christ, the Word of God, as the LORD and Savior that He is. Your rejection of Him doesn’t change who He is, but it does keep you from receiving Salvation.

            Your pride and intelligence won’t save you from Sin.

            Follow Jesus, find Salvation.

          • RWH

            You may say that you’re not trying to bring me in line, but that is exactly what you are doing. You assume that I am prideful. However, what is wrong with me pales in the light of your arrogance and condescending attitude that you presume to sit in judgment of others and force yourself between people and Christ by proclaiming who is saved and who is not saved. I said absolutely nothing to even hint that I reject Christ, but that does not make a difference between the spiritually proud and haughty, people that empty churches rather than build people up. However, you just go ahead and pass judgment. Christ had a lot to say about your type as well, and it ain’t good.

          • FoJC

            Ah, the fall back. You classify me as a “pharisee”, because you won’t acknowledge your own sinfulness. You are adept at the art of spin.

            You call preaching about the reality of Hell as it being wrong. Jesus preached on it too. Those who leave it out do so to appeal to those who don’t want to acknowledge that they simply have their own beliefs about God, rather than knowing the Truth.

            Sadly, your attempt at winning the argument you created only shows your heart – aloof, condescending, and accusatory.

            Follow Jesus, find Truth.

          • RWH

            I’m not interested in discussing the merits of all of your psychobabble. I outlined the rules that the chaplain was expected to follow. Someone responds with a veiled threat, and now I’ve got to put up with all this nonsense of hell and damnation because you don’t agree with my assessment. Save the damnation to someone gullible enough to believe your nonsense. You know nothing about me or my relationship with Christ. Yet, you presume to pass judgment on the flimsiest of standards–all biased opinion and no hard evidence. I’ve seen your type, and they empty churches because you like to put others down because they don’t abide by some sort of silly hidden agenda.

          • FoJC

            Rage and rant, rant and rage.

            Oh, it’s Kool Aid, not Cool Aid.

            I’m not passing Judgement. You are revealing your heart. So much anger and hostility and arrogance in you. You love to argue and debate.

            Follow Jesus, find Wisdom.

          • RWH

            Idiot!

        • zampogna

          I wonder if you’ve considered the possibility that you don’t understand the subject you’re involved with at all.

          • Amos Moses – He>i

            back at ‘cha …. sport ……….

          • zampogna

            No, I mean I really do wonder.

  • Grace Kwon

    Nothing colored people dreamed, ever. What a misery to be bullied by the West for not-supporting its homosexual depravity right after getting out of racism. The West needs Judeo-Christian values to do what is right.

    • Sedagive

      Right. They didn’t bother trying to get into the white bathrooms, or the white restaurants, or the white hotels…

      • Greg Paley

        Oh look, one of the gay pedophile trolls is lonesome and wants to chat.

        Is your porn site down, Freako?

        • Sedagive

          I see you make accusations against me with no evidence to support them. What brought you to the conclusion that I’m a) gay, b) a pedophile, c) a troll, or d) lonesome?

          • Greg Paley

            ZZZZ

          • Sedagive

            Again, you seem to have the mistaken conclusion that I’m gay, and a child molester. Doth thou project much?

          • Grace Kwon

            Homosexuality causes pedophilia. The West’s atrocity by immorality must get halted by all normal and moral humans.

          • Sedagive

            Do you have any scientific evidence for this claim?

          • Grace Kwon

            The news from the West.

          • Sedagive

            What news from the west? Link it? Link this scientific evidence for the claim that homosexuality causes pedophilia?

          • Grace Kwon

            This news site. Homosexuals and transgenderers teach children to be immoral. White men need Christianity to be moral.

          • Sedagive

            “White men need Christianity to be moral” – What about colored men? What about women?

            And I thought you had scientific evidence of homosexuality leading to pedophilia?

          • Grace Kwon

            Everyone, but white men are powerful and if they are not Christian they hurt everyone on earth unlike others, because people mimic white men blindly. Homosexuality lusts over anything and everything including children. Today’s Western Sodom and its slave nations are the proof for all to see including this news. White men made a blasphemous movie called “The Shack” by using colored actors. Disgusting.

          • Sedagive

            “but white men are powerful” – Why? Their skin pigmentation?

            “homosexuality lusts over anything including children” – Again, evidence for this?

          • Grace Kwon

            White men were superior because of Christianity and they used to rule the world. Today they push homosexuality but are still unequally powerful. The news say homosexuals make children immoral. White men do bad if they are not Christian. Christianity is white men’s only sane conscience.

          • Sedagive

            So not only are you ignorantly racist, but you’re ignorantly bigoted towards gay people, and almost intentionally ignorant.

            “the news say homosexuals make children immoral” – I know some news does that. But where’s the SCIENCE evidence of this?

          • Grace Kwon

            The West prohibits freedom, making mankind submit to sodomy. The West is wrong. Read the news here. Post-christian Western culture is hopelessly immoral, but they force it upon mankind.

      • Grace Kwon

        White Christians gave education to all colored peoples and the slaves broke free. John 8. The whites are good if they are Christian and the colored are not barbaric if they are Christian.

        • Sedagive

          White Christians also opposed education to all colored peoples, and opposed the freedom of slaves.

          • Grace Kwon

            You are wrong. White Christians educated everyone on earth; the only reason anyone is free on Planet Earth.

          • Sedagive

            That’s cute, but not even history teaches that.

          • Grace Kwon

            Americans usually don’t know history. Only Christian Americans do.

          • Sedagive

            You know, your self-delusions are cute.

  • Grace Kwon

    Christianity is absolutely and forever incompatible with homosexual immorality and transgender falsehood. Period. (Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Romans)

    • Sedagive

      Then don’t be gay. There, that was simple.

      • Grace Kwon

        The West forces the acceptance of immorality. That cancels out freedom. This century, Western nations are the criminals against human rights and freedom.

        • Sedagive

          What human rights have you lost?

          • Grace Kwon

            Opposing the West’s mentally ill immorality. The Western Sodom is rich and powerful they silence everyone on earth with their filthy blood money.

          • Sedagive

            What rights have you lost? You ignored my question.

          • Grace Kwon

            The rights to oppose the Western Sodom’s mentally ill immorality in public.

          • Sedagive

            You have that right. You can still oppose it…by not practicing this immorality yourself.

          • Grace Kwon

            No, Westerners persecute and fine and jail the Christians for opposing the immorality.

          • Sedagive

            Do they? Where?

          • Grace Kwon

            Read the news in this site here.

          • Sedagive

            Got any specifics?

          • Grace Kwon

            Read the news and the Holy Bible. Romans 1.

          • Sedagive

            Read the news? You mean of these Christians breaking the law and discriminating, and trying to violate the Constitution?

            And the Bible is irrelevant.

  • RWH

    The chaplain did his job. He shared the new policy. He gave the ramifications of that policy. He stayed neutral on it. He neither approved no disapproved. He wasn’t commissioned to give his personal opinion, nor was he asked to bring in the Bible or any other spiritual principles. I’m sure that he would have candidly shared his feelings if someone came up and asked him privately, but he would have been quick to tell people that he does not make policy and that he is obligated to follow that policy. In our jobs, we all have to do things that we find dubious or questionable. We have the right to take our concerns to our superiors, but we do not have the right to countermand policy or to undermine it. As far as the government is concerned, he had a job to do, and he did it. Had he refused, the Military has ways of dealing with those who are insubordinate just like it happens with any other job. We may have First Amendment rights, but when we take a job, we subordinate some of those rights to company policy.

    • Sedagive

      I respect this position.

      • RWH

        Unfortunately, a lot of people on this list will not. The hostility that crosses all lines of civility that some have shown is rather staggering considering that these people think that they’re good Christians.

        • Sedagive

          The chaplain works for the military. The military sets the rules. He simply follows them.

          • Robert

            Thats not true of denominations that their pastors refuse to be military chaplains . instead their sent as civilian chaplains to the military. Like wels pastors that are civilian Chaplin’s .

            A chaplain that is in the military follows military rules.

    • Amos Moses – He>i

      no …. he did not …. he bent his knee to a different power than God ….. and he failed God miserably ……….

      • RWH

        Yes, he did answer to a different power. He was asked by his supervisor to inform the troops about a change of policy. He described the policy in a fair and unbiased manner as instructed. He’s on the government payroll, so he wasn’t acting in his role as a spiritual leader but as a messenger. Would you prefer that he keep people ignorant of the policy and then let people get disciplined because they transgressed against a policy they knew nothing about.

  • Greg Paley

    No good can come from the army accepting mentally ill people who think they are the opposite sex.

      Luckily, we only want the military to accept mental well people who identify as the opposite gender.

    The military should never be used for a social experiment. A country is only as strong as their military. Say what you wish, but the military is no place for people who are sexually confused. Obama wanted to destroy our military by such practices. We need the best of the best to defend our nation, not those who are unsure of who they are. I have compassion for the confused and all those who have been deceived by the lies and deceit of the evil one, however, our military is in need of every penny Congress will allow for equipment, ordnance, training, weapons, etc.

    Am I reading this right? We’re supposed to be upset because this soldier believes that learning about the rules is somehow a violation of his faith? …like his religion prohibits him from hearing rules?

    Yeah, no. You can’t exempt yourself from hearing about rules. Especially not in the military. They’re rules. You don’t have to like them but it’s pretty important that you know what they are. Again, it’s the military.

    This is another good reason Wels

      Well, goodie for Wisconsin Synod Lutherans that they don’t have official chaplains. Maybe God loves them more than anyone else. However, by being outside of the organizational structure, their powers to help people are quite limited.

    “…and emphasized that in the Army, “We do not discriminate, we do not isolate, we do not segregate.”

    Clearly, they don’t against abominations and detestable things (eg homosexuality), but are Christian soldiers afforded the same rights? Not so much.

      How are Christian soldiers afforded the same rights?

      Anyone actually been in the military? A service member whose ‘beliefs’ won’t let them treat other service members as required are ‘accommodated’ by removing them from service Doesn’t matter what kind of prejudice they have or the rationalization for it.

      Dude, why do you pretend to be a woman? Your sex was decided at the very instant of conception. Your DNA is male and always will be. Healthy-minded people accept themselves, they don’t live in a fantasy world. God created two sexes, and it’s a beautiful arrangement. You ought to be celebrating your maleness.

      Get some therapy and learn to celebrate reality. It’s wrong to delude yourself, and it’s very wrong to try to impose your delusion on sane people. You’re a guy, embrace it and enjoy it.

    This “chaplain’s” position is horse dung, and matches the godless attitute permeating modern society. The new Sec Def must step in and reverse this utter nonsense and restore America’s military services to that of their former selves just prior to the nation’s “fundamental transformation” under duress of late… There’s no excuse for him dong nothing…

      This chaplain’s position is rightful. He followed his commands. They were lawful orders.

      • Chet

        He went overboard and buckled in the face of liberal godless adversity only to drop and roll over… Time the body of Christ took a stand and dared to be a Daniel and watch how the Almighty works things out to His glory and honor. Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus Ye Soldiers Of The Cross…

            They do nothing whatsoever to better equip warfighters to perform their mission… In fact, such base decisions adversely affect the good order and discipline of the troops, most all of whom do not subscribe to these foolish ideals and ultra leftist social matters of late. You know, those that were so designed as America was undergoing her “fundamental transformation” of late, under duress… Prior to that, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was performing nicely…

            How so?

    Idiocy and its consequences invariably prevails when man rejects Yahweh, God of the Bible, as His sovereign and His moral law as supreme.

    Case in point: Women enlisting in the military in violation of the following:

    “And Yahweh spake … saying, Take ye the sum of all the congregation … every MALE by their polls; from twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war….” (Numbers 1:1-3)

    Well ladies (?) now you’re reaping one of the consequences for disregard for God and His will for your lives. You wanted to be in the military with the men, now welcome to showering with men.

    For more on how Yahweh’s immutable moral law applies and should be implemented today, see free online book “Law and Kingdom: Their Relevance Under the New Covenant.” Click on my name, then our website. Go to our Online Books page and scroll down to the title.

      The United States has rejected your god and his sovereign and moral laws for as long as it’s had a Constitution. We’re still fine.

    • Trilemma

      Numbers 1:1-3 doesn’t prohibit women from enlisting in the military. It doesn’t even mention women. It simply commands a census of healthy men who may or may not actually fight in a war.

    Nothing strikes fear into an enemy nation’s heart quite like promoting insanity within the ranks of your own military…

      So, are you thinking of the Sacred Band of Thebes?

      Oh didn’t you hear? The Department of Defense exists to make homosexuals and trannies feel good about themselves. Defense of the nation is no longer a priority. In fact, normal humans exist to kiss the behinds of these freaks.

    This is why so many southern baptist their people are so confused when it comes to homosexual issues. Can you blame them when one of their pastors SAY one thing and another one of their pastors say another thing.? They do this with other teachings also . one pastor is a evolutionist another a creationist .?

    It’s great to see men like Dr. Sonny Hernandez take the Biblical stand here. Too many ‘professing’ Christians have normalized homosexuality, and they have been desensitized to sin. That is a betrayal of God, and in-part an apostasy. Glory to God for men like Hernandez. And yes God does “discriminate,” for starts read the parable of the Lords dragnet.
