What is going on with our Military? Do they no longer believe in the fight for God and Country? They refuse to acknowledge Muslim jihadists among their ranks, thus refusing to protect our men and women. They’ve dumped our soldiers’ remains in a landfill, and refused to let Bibles or “church” groups into Walter Reed Hospital. Please don’t miss a post by an Army wife below.
The policy banned anyone from giving Bibles or any other religious materials to wounded troops. Even moms and dads.Church groups were told they were no longer welcome at the hospital.
Well — after we exposed this nonsense — the military promised us they would rescind the policy. And as of today — the military made good on its word.
Walter Reed posted an apology on its website. Says the order had been improperly worded. Now they say that religious items are welcome, if they are welcomed by the patients.
I’m still troubled by a few things — though. Why was the Bible specifically singled out? And who ever thought that banning bibles was a worthwhile policy to consider.
Exactly! What is going on in our Military?
This isn’t a new problem. We may be sending our troops off to war without their Bible:
A Soldier’s Bible
It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines for some reason hadn’t been heard. The young soldier knew it was Sunday, the holiest day of the week.
As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cardsand laid them out across his bunk.
Just then an army sergeant came in and said, “Why aren’t you with the rest of the platoon?
The soldier replied, “I thought I would stay behind and spend some time with the Lord.”
The sergeant said, “Looks to me like you’re going to play cards.”
The soldier said, “No, sir. You see, since we are not allowed to have Bibles or other spiritual books in this country, I’ve decided to talk to the Lord by studying this deck of cards.”
The sergeant asked in disbelief, “How will you do that?”
“You see the Ace, Sergeant?It reminds me that there is only one God. Read the rest at Honey Bunches of Oaks 2009
I do believe our soliders can have Bibles, but church groups cannot send the Bibles into Islamic countries to be used for proselytizing. That’s good policy. I can understand that. But if we are not allowing a soldier who wants a Bible to have one, whether in the U.S. or elsewhere, that’s abhorrent policy. As Todd Starnes said, who in the Military is making these decisions? It’s about God and Country. It is not about Allah and Country.
