This is one of the problems. YOU cannot separate the inappropriatness of his use of the PA system of an airliner from an attack on YOUR faith.
If you disagree try this. Change Christianity to Islam or Judaism or neoPagan Druid (Reformed) and see if you still feel like making the argument you make. I believe that YOUR assessment of whether his actions were right or wrong is absolutely tied to your faith in YOUR religion.
It has nothing
to do with the cause being advanced. I'll even concede for the sake of argument that the God of the Christians is the one and only true god and the rest of us are going to burn in hell for eternity. That has nothing to do with this event.
He does not own the PA on that airplane. The company owns it. They require that he use it to make announcements related to their safety. They want him to use it to welcome people aboard and make PR
efforts on behalf of the airline. The rules for use of the PA are contained in their Operations Manual and he is required by FAR
to be familiar with the content of that manual. Any person who would deliberately and publicly violate the rules set forth in the Company operations manual must be seen as a possible threat to the public safety. It is the same manual that tells him he cannot drink alcohol before coming on duty. We cannot "cherry-pick" the rules we want to obey.
He is not permitted to use the PA for personal messages. It is not just the Godless airlines, all large companies have rules about promoting personal causes on company property. No matter how worthy the cause we are not permitted to do it.
That he might have offended Jews or Moslems or Buddhists is not really the point. 9/11 is more the point. He frightened passengers. A religious war has been declared on us - a nation that cannot, by Federal law even acknowledge religion. He frightened passengers and we are never permitted to do that, even if the plane is about to crash. A pilot in his right mind, knows what is, or is not, allowed to be said on the PA.
I believe that he needs professional help. I believe that not because he is a Christian. That is just silly and you should be embarrassed for having proposed such nonsense. I believe it because he violated important company rules in a very public way that any reasonable person (or any person in their right mind) would know is going to get space in the newspapers.
