Default Missing man table at VA hospitol has a Bible.

VA hospital is facing legal pushback because it housed a 'Missing Man Table' that
featured the Bible. Yes, you read that correctly. A Bible!

A 'Christian' veteran (an ex-Catholic, now a member of the United Church of Christ)
is suing Manchester VA Medical Center in New Hampshire for the Bible as
'objectionable.'

Sign the petition, urging the Manchester VA to stay strong under pressure of
political correctness
(https://returntoorder.us14.list-mana...e&e=6d223a5375)

The Bible belongs to a 95-year-old World War II veteran, Herk Steinberger, who
donated it to be put on the display honoring veterans. After initial complaint the
Bible was removed, but was restored later in a plexiglass case to protect it from
injury.

Yet some are complaining that the Bible is offensive to other veterans, and has no
place on the 'Missing Man Display,' a practice which honors soldiers missing in
action and prisoners of war. Mikey Weinstein, a veteran and attorney for the
Military Religious Freedom Foundation (an organization which gleefully records the
removal of Bibles from similar displays), made the following statement:

"The [Manchester] VA has ignominiously made sure that that sectarian Christian bible
sticks out like a tarantula on a wedding cake in that POW/MIA display... We look
forward to aggressively prosecuting our case in Federal Court."
(MilitaryReligiousFreedom.org; emphasis added)

But how can this be, since the Bible is a part of the Missing Man Displays, as noted
by POW- MIAFamilies.org:

"The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain us and those lost
from our country, founded as one nation under God."

Sign the petition encouraging the Manchester VA to stand its ground and keep the
Bible
(https://returntoorder.us14.list-mana...c&e=6d223a5375)

Atheists and the politically correct cannot stand that we are a nation 'under God,'
which means we honor Him above all else. They fail to realize that true love of
country and of our military veterans springs from this love of God.

Indeed, without God, all honor is superficial. And this is why we must stand with
the Bible.

Please sign our petition
(https://returntoorder.us14.list-mana...b&e=6d223a5375)
, urging the Manchester VA Medical Center to stand strong with the Bible and in
truly honoring our veterans.

Keep in mind.."The United Church of Christ" is the same apostate gang which Obama chose to "worship" with in Chicago.

That 'church' in Chicago held a celebration day in honor of Calypso Louis Farrakhan... ho is the #1 Muslim proselytizer in the nation.

There were so many of photos like this on FB this morning, I should have stored them. But FB took them down because Muslims were offended. Such when do we bow down to Islam for honoring our dead? Some of the photos were so heartbreaking.

I want a little pay back.

You can almost sense the deep grief in this young widow's heart..it is almost palpable.

Mikey Weinstein's attempts to bully the DOD resulted in a restatement of support for religious freedom, the opposite of his goal. Hopefully the VA will follow the DOD precedent in their response.
