VA Chaplain Says Officials Ordered Him To Hide Christian Symbols In VA Chapel, “Stop Talking About Jesus Out Loud”…
Over 230 years ago Thomas Jefferson said that “The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” If your belief doesn’t infringe on my physical well-being or finances… Government cannot legitimately interfere in such matters. But despite the First Amendment right that restricts Federal Government imposing or interceding on personal beliefs, they recently ordered all Veteran’s Chapels to hide all things Christian.
Via Iron Mountain Daily News:
I went to the VA Hospital in Iron Mountain today on business. While there I stopped at the Chapel and found pinky-purple curtains with mesh at the top, covering the altar. (You know the type. They use them between sick patients in the hospital).
I stopped in my tracks, shocked at what I saw. I peeked behind the curtain, and found what used to be the welcoming part of the chapel, the Cross, a picture of Jesus, and other Christian icons familiar to the majority of Americans.
I found Chaplain Bob Mueller, to ask what the meaning was of this change. This is what he told me.
“A couple of months ago, an order came down from Washington DC to cover all things associated with Christianity in the VA. Their solution is to cover everything in all the VA Chapels across the country.”
Chaplain Bob went on to say, “A few weeks ago an official from the Madison VA came down here to tell me to ‘stop talking about Jesus, and to stop reading Scripture out loud.’”
Chaplain Bob also said that the rest of the Obama plan is to send more curtains to cover the rest of the stained glass windows, because there are Christian symbols on the stained glass.
These photos reveal future plans by the White House.
To use the same phrase President Obama so ‘eloquently’ used concerning other matters at the VA, ‘I’m mad as hell…”
As Americans, we need to stand together to stop this insanity.
If you believe that Federal Government has gone too far with Veteran’s in wiping all Christianity from chapels, hospitals and memorials please reach out to your local and federal representatives to demand they stand against Washington DC’s unlawful religion cleansing tactics.
