Travis Air Force Base is defending the base’s nativity scene & menorah, under fire from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, or MRFF (the deception in labeling smells a little like the Patient Protection & Affordable Health Care Act –OBAMA-CARE, doesn’t it?).
Fortunately, the Military has refused to remove the Christian and Jewish symbols. Here’s the link. Interestingly I was unable to insert the YouTube video directly as the ‘Embedding has been disabled by request’ (by whom? inquiring minds want to know).
MRFF calls itself the Constitutional Conscience of the United States Military, further stating:
“The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is the sole nonprofit civil rights organization dedicated to ensuring that all members of the United States Armed Forces fully receive the Constitutional guarantee of both freedom of religion and freedom from religion, to which they and all Americans are entitled.”
My little pocket copy of The Constitution, Amendment 1 reads slightly different;
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Comparing the above 2 quotes, the first from MRFF and the second verbatim from The Bill of Rights, Amendment 1, of The Constitution you can see a little bit of distortion in the first. This distortion is what the ACLU, atheists, jihadists and the PC crowd use all the time as they continue to force religion from public places, our schools and military bases. And look where it’s gotten us over the last 20 years.
Clearly Major Nidal Malik Hasan was practicing his freedom of religion when he murdered 13 and wounded 29 others as a ‘SoA‘ (soldier of Allah). And MRFF was right there blaming the Military.
This same political correctness and constitutional distortion is undoubtedly responsible for Walter Reed National Military Medical Center banning family members from bringing bibles to injured soldiers at the center. Ditto for the congressional commission which just ruled that members of the US House may not include the greeting “Merry Christmas” in their official mail – but they can say, “Happy New Year”.
I told you it’s a total crap sandwich they are feeding us. How much more are we willing to take? Use this link and let it rip -let your Congressmen know you think this stinks.
