Ed Brayton reports on anti-Semitism in the case of Canadian Rabbi Jeffrey Goldman, a U.S. military chaplain who is listed as a deserter by the Army. Brayton is usually a cautious reporter, so I take his comments on this seriously. If the facts as he presents them are anything close to accurate, the conduct of the officers involved is reprehensible.
For the most part, the military has been ahead of the curve in dealing with bigotry (homosexuality being a disgraceful exception), but disturbing reports of Christian bigotry in the officer corps have been surfacing with alarming frequency over the last ten years. The military must be more transparent and vigorous in pursuing accusations of the sort Goldman has made.
