If you visit a “Patriot Store” in any VA Medical Center across the country, tough luck if you want some non-Christian reading material. Due to a VA contract with Choice Books, and quite unconstitutionally, the only books available in these government-run stores are Christian books — for veterans, their families (particularly children), and apparently even for their pets, with a title called “Proverbs for Dogs”!!!
MRFF has received complaints from veterans across the country, including from the VA Medical Center where MRFF Founder and President Mikey Weinstein himself receives his medical care, about this exclusively Christian selection of reading material.
In April, MRFF submitted a FOIA request to find out how Choice Books got the contract to be the sole bookseller in the VA’s Patriot Stores, but the VA has failed to respond. Now that over four month have passed since the VA’s deadline to respond, MRFF is preparing to sue the VA to force them to hand over the documents.
