Or, should they be provided by the religious organizations at their own expense?

That's a very good question. I'll have to give that some thought.

RE: Military Chaplains
One important point to note is that by having chaplains under military payroll they are then under military hierarchy which means they can be ordered around. This helps prevent them getting in the way of military matters.

Also in terms of paying for their training, would you rather a bunch of civilians running around a military base.

I'm homophobic in the same way that I'm arachnophobic. I'm not scared of gay people but I'm going to scream if I find one in my bath.

I'm. Also homophobic in the same way I'm arachnophobic. I'm scared of spiders but I'd still fuck'em.

Are you saying that whenever civilians have business on a military base they are allowed to run around willy-nilly, and do not have to follow the rules of the base or the bases command?
I've worked on a military base (Ft. Irwin) as a civilian and I can assure you this is not the case.

I guess you're right in terms of the military base, However as far as I know civilians do not go out in the field unless under military command, hence why the medical corp is under military command and not civilian command. They know how to react in case things go FUBAR. Priests tend to have a habit of running through the middle of combat administering last rights. It would probably be better if the had some training.

Civilian reporters and photographers do it. There's the U.S.O. too. Following the rules of the military while you're in their domain does not necessarily mean you have to be in their employ. If a civilian opts to go into war zones it would be in their best interests to do as they're told to avoid getting dead.

Never heard that before.
Hear I would have guessed that patrol commanders would want as few civies with them as possible.

Different places, different systems, I guess.
