A disturbing story to share with you from Lexington, Kentucky.
The VA Health Care System has ordered staff to remove Bibles from every Missing Man table display. Instead, the Bible will be replaced with a journal filled with blank pages.
The Missing Man displays are meant to honor service members who are either prisoners of war or missing in action. Part of the display has traditionally included a Bible.
“All table displays within VA Lexington Health Care System will contain the following: small table, white tablecloth, single rose, vase, yellow ribbon, slice of lemon, salt, bread plate, glass, candle, empty chair, and a journal,” the healthcare system wrote in a memorandum.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation has been waging a national war against the Holy Bible on military bases and VA hospitals. They allege veterans in Kentucky were triggered by the Good Book.
The MRFF once boasted about having a literal red phone line to the Pentagon during the Obama Administration. Whenever one of their “anonymous” minions got triggered by a Nativity scene on a military base, they would pick up the phone and *poof* the Baby Jesus would disappear.
Founder Mikey Weinstein said the presence of the Bible on the Missing Man table was an atrocious and unconstitutional act of Christian supremacy.
He called the cherished military tradition a “partisan display to promote and proselytize Christianity and only Christianity is an atrocious and singularly ignominious act of illicit, unconstitutional Christian supremacy, exclusivity, triumphalism, and exceptionalism.”
Weinstein went on to allege the permanent display of a Christian Bible is not even allowed in a VA chapel.
“MRFF demands that you immediately remove the illicit, unconstitutional Christian proselytizing material (from the Gideons International organization) from the referenced POW/MIA ‘Missing Man Table’ display, which is under your personal control and direction,” he wrote.
Instead of standing on tradition and the U.S. Constitution, the health care system surrendered to Weinstein’s cowardly group. And in doing so they desecrated one of the most sacred tables in America.
