Opinion about the bible removing

Really ashamed a veteran of the U.S. has the bible removed out of the lobby. I saw it on Fox News. I mean REALLY!  What if it was  a porn magazine would he have had it removed also?  I get offended every day by something just tell the guy to put his big girl panties on and just get over it and move on….that Bible was probably placed there to help someone who needed it.  Shame on your group and I would not support you for sure. I  Love America and our Vets who served but this is just ridiculous and that is why I thank our veterans for serving and giving me MY Freedom to express this opinion also.

God Bless!

Dear (name withheld),

What would you think if an Islam Quran or the religious writings of religions other than Christianity were exclusively promoted in a public display by our military, which is composed of men & women of many different faiths, religions, non-religions, beliefs & practices?
Attached is rational explanation in plain language of the reason why our public military cannot lawfully promote a private religion. Hopefully, it will be informative.
Most Sincerely,

Ours is a nation of laws. Your hurt feelings don’t negate the US Constitution and 60+ years of judicial precedent.  Shame on you for sleeping through civics and sympathizing with theocrats.

Hi , (name withheld)

Seeing something on Fox News and believing their spin says plenty about you and your judgment, so  we won’t worry about your being “ashamed.” As far as the “porn magazine” is concerned, we’ll leave that to you.

Our job is to ensure that those in authority in the military obey the law and their own regulations with regard to religious proselytizing. Since you think you know “that Bible was probably placed there to help someone who needed it,” where was the Torah or the Koran or the teaching instrument for someone who “needed” help but doesn’t happen to be a Christian?

Save your shame for the narrow-minded who tend to forget that the nation you claim to love protects the right of every one of its servicemen and women to believe as they choose without having someone push on them a particular belief system they may not share.

Dear (name withheld),

Mikey asked if I could respond to your e-mail.  I do so under a pseudonym as I do not wish to be trolled and have no idea if your are such a person.

After consideration, I thought that someone else, who had already done so; MRFF Advisory Board Member John M. Compere (Judge and Brigadier General, US Army, Retired), might be better.

So, if you can unbunch your own panties long enough, read this.
