Houston VA Bans Mention of God at Funerals for Vets

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs continues campaign to censor citizens from freely expressing their religious beliefs. Government officials at the Houston National Cemetery continue to:

• Ban the word "God" at funerals for veterans;

• Require grieving families to submit prayers or religious messages for approval to the government before a funeral at the cemetery;

• Hide the Bible and the cross that were once placed in the cemetery chapel;

• Send VA officials to monitor funerals to ensure the VFW, The American Legion or the National Memorial Ladies do not mention God or give a religious message to families who are burying their loved ones.

When the Obama VA refused to back down, Liberty Institute took immediate legal action.

There are wrongheaded people on the Left too.

The proper way to carry this out would be to make sure the deceased's religious preferences are known and proceed accordingly. 'God bless you' to an Atheist is a worthless gesture, 'We are so sorry for your loss' far more appropriate. 'God bless you' to a Muslim can be offensive unless the referent is Allah; 'Jesus loves you' to a Jew is a thought conveying one single man from the distant past loves you and is essentially of no value.

Be inclusive, don't ban everything. 'Get it right' should be the sentiment, not 'don't even bother'.

Fire the person responsible for violating OUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH and for VIOLATING OUR 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHTS in respect to KEEP GOVERNMENT from INTERFERRING with OUR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

From the very begining a Soldier was trained and taught " When in Combat, a Soldier fights for God and Country " If you can't use Gods name at a funeral where a soldier has died protecting his country and V.A. cemetaries are part of this country. Then the soldier died for God and not this Nation that is crumbling under the pressure of those who do not believe in God. I will bury any fallen Warrior in my yard and make it a shrine, and protect it with life and I TRULY believe God will stand by my side, and this Vietnam Veteran will not loose, excepy maybe his life.
