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.
