"No, this man has no shame whatsoever."

Quote of Middlelinebacker on

"In answer to your rhetorical question, "Does this man have no shame?" the answer is a resounding and unreserved, "No, this man has no shame whatsoever." Have you seen and heard some of his comments on radio interviews and in comments to the Baptist Press? He doesn't bother to tell folks that he isn't being "evicted" but that he is merely required to vacate quarters as all others are required to do on receipt of orders. He doesn't tell how he deceptively got extended base passes on false grounds and then took them to housing as proof that he was being permitted to remain in housing. Of course, all of this was discovered and overturned. When he talks about his wife being at home having to pack everything in boxes, he doesn't bother to tell the public that the Navy provides a free move. He doesn't tell the public that the Navy will pull a van up to his door, send packers in to pack everything and then load it, transport it to the next home, unload it, unpack it and put it in place. He doesn't tell the public that he has chosen to do a "Do it yourself move" and all expenses of the move will be paid by the Navy. He says that he is losing his house and his car (?) and will be without a job but he doesn't tell the public that the Navy is giving him a severance check of between $96,000.00 and $100,000.00. The formula for severance pay is 10% of base pay multiplied by number of years of active duty. He unashamedly told one radio interviewer that he turned down an Air Force move to Washington and a promotion to Lieutenant Colonel to take a demotion to Lieutenant and become a Navy Chaplain. In the first instance, he didn't have enough time in grade as a Major to be promoted to LtCol and besides that, we know that the military doesn't just give you a promotion for taking a set of orders. There is a board and selection process in every case. Also, most of us are sick and tired of hearing how he took a demotion to become a Chaplain. Everybody who crosses over to become a Chaplain takes a demotion if they are senior to the rank of Lieutenant. Lieutenant is the entry point rank. There is no virtue in making such a choice; it is simply a matter of necessity. And yes, I agree that his "biography" should be removed from Wikipedia. Furthermore, I am a bit tired of hearing well-meaning people make excuses for him and bemoan his "bad luck" in the Navy. He hasn't had bad luck. He has made bad choices and there is sufficient evidence to prove that he has done this willfully and with unethical and deceptive intent. This person brings shame and dishonor to both the title of Naval Officer and Navy Chaplain."
