"Military Surgeon Makes Patient's Family Pray to Jesus To
Guide His Hands"

Tuesday, February 27, 2018

Just try to imagine yourself in this situation. You have a family member who is about to go into surgery. You and other family members are in a waiting room and in walks the surgeon who's going to be performing the operation. You’re probably thinking that he's come in to give you some information or say something reassuring, but that's not why he's there. He's come in to get you and your family to pray with him and ask Jesus to guide his hands as he cuts into your loved one.

Military Religious Freedom Foundation and Mikey Weinstein,

My name is (withheld) and I want to thank you for helping my family through a very difficult matter connected with my husband's surgery in a large military hospital.

Please do not release our names or any other facts that can identify us as we still fear we can be hurt from this hospital and my husband's command.

My husband is a (military rank withheld) in the U.S. (military branch withheld). He has seen much combat.

Recently it was decided that he needed an operation to fix a serious medical problem due to his prior combat deployments. Surgery was schedule on (day and month withheld) of 2018. The procedure was to take about 3 to 4 hours and there was some potential risks given how serious it all was.

"Our First Two Constitutional Amendments"

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

By: John M. Compere (Judge and Brigadier General, US Army, Retired)
Date: February 20, 2018


The United States Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787. Our Bill of Rights, the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution, was ratified on December 15, 1791.

The 1st & 2nd Amendments were first and second priority of our Founders. The 1st Amendment provides our historic trinity of religious liberties (freedom from public religion, freedom of private religion, and freedom of religious speech) and other speech or press, and the right to assemble and petition. The 2nd Amendment provides our right to keep and bear arms (individually and collectively).

The US Supreme Court has the exclusive authority to interpret the Constitution (Article III) and has done so with respect to the 1st and 2nd Amendments based upon their language, and historic intent as confirmed by public records. That is our American judicial tradition of constitutional construction. No law, past or present, limits the Court’s interpretation to literal language.
