Army Chaplain Under Investigation for Saying Transgender Troops May Have Mental Problems

Soldier: Man In Uniform Praying

A U.S. Army Chaplain is now under investigation for coming to the logical conclusion that transgender soldiers may be mentally unfit for duty in the nation’s armed services.

The investigation of the chaplain was launched not long after President Biden issued a repeal of Trump’s ban on transgender service members as one of his many dozens of executive orders during his first week in office.

The Daily Mail reported on Friday that Army chaplain Maj. Andrew Calvert is now facing an investigation after he made the remarks about transgendered troops on his Facebook page. He reportedly made the remarks the same day Biden overturned Trump’s previous ban.

“How is rejecting reality (biology) not evidence that a person is mentally unfit (ill), and thus making that person unqualified to serve?” the Mail said the Chaplain wrote. “There is little difference in this than over those who believe and argue for a ‘flat earth,’ despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The motivation is different, but the argument is the same.”

“Always remember to ‘Think, Type, Post’ when it comes to engaging in conversation on social media platforms. We are soldiers 24/7 and that means always treating people with dignity and respect. We are aware of the recent comments posted to the Army Times Facebook in regard to the ban being removed on transgender service members. This incident is under investigation,” a statement from the government said.

“The Security Force Assistant Command Enterprise fully supports the Commander in Chief, Secretary of Defense, and all DoD policies. The United States Army has a strict standard against any form of discrimination based on gender identity,” the statement added.
