No religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading material, and/or artifacts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit, the policy states.

That means you cant bring in a Bible and read from it when you visit your son or your daughter, perhaps or your wife or husband. It means a priest that might be coming in to visit someone on their death bed couldnt bring in the Eucharist, couldnt offer Last Rites. This is the most outrageous affront.
The idea that these soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines that have fought to defend our Constitution, and that includes our First Amendment rights to religious liberty would be denied that religious liberty when they are lying in a hospital bed recovering from wounds incurred while defending that liberty is the most bitter and offensive type of an irony that I can think of.
Isn’t Walter Reed hospital closed?
Newly named Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md
Is the Koran allowed?
Memo signed by C. W. Callahan, Chief of Staff
The next president, assuming we get the right person in there this time, is going to need to do a lot of house cleaning.
“Is the Koran allowed?”
Probably, since it represents a cult, not a religion.
God bless Rep. King--perhaps one of the greatest congressmen, EVER, to grace the US House.
Senate Repeals Bans on Sodomy and Bestiality in the Military
They can’t stop God from coming into the hospital..Just pray and ask him to be with you and protect you..
The fools that make these rules will never know since they can’t see or hear God like we Christians can..
It will not get any better we are living in the last days I really believe..
The Air force is much more open to the religious, provided the religion is paganism.
The Pentagon under the Obama administration has acknowledged seizing and burning the privately owned Bibles of American soldiers serving in Afghanistan
Now they will try to change our national motto to:
“ONE NATION UNDER A CULT”
I hope this does not give them a new idea.
our initial intention which was to respect religious and cultural practices of our patients.
We respect them by outlawing them. The lack of critical thinking skill in the class of people running things is as disturbing as the spiritual decay in evidence here.
From the military academies to the highest ranks in the Pentagon, from the regional commands to the ships at sea, a drastic purge is needed. We have fought two wars over ten years and only two real commanders come to mind — Petraeus and Odierno. And that is scarey.
The United States of America needs to outlaw Islam
Islam is clearly unconstitutional. The goal of Islam is to do away with our rule of law and replace it with Sharia law. There is no god greater than Allah. If we want to bow down to Allah, then we can welcome Islam.
In my 77+ years it seems we are on the verge of yielding to the powers of Satan (the god of this world); Under his direction and guidance, he will pass laws that will make Christians criminals, even attempt to make it a law against the return of our Saviour Jesus Christ.
May we remember Jesus said: “My Lord said unto My Lord, sit down at My right side until I make Thine enemies Thy foot stool!”
The military maintains it is a misunderstanding and they rescinded the policy in order to clarify it ... where’s the original memo? I want to judge for myself if this is really a misunderstanding. Chances are it is NOT.
The light switch is turned on and the cockroaches scurry for the cracks in the wall. Excuses and obfuscations will fly like bats out of a bat cave. This memo was approved by the commander of Walter Reed. It states, No religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading material, and/or artifacts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit. Public Affairs Officer Sandy Dean claims these instructions have been rescinded because they did not, “articulate our initial intention which was to respect religious and cultural practices of our patients. The instructions were “misinterpreted” because they were “ambiguous.” VA Cemetery director Arleen Ocasio attempted to ban the mention of Christ’s name at the Houston cemetery. I guess this is just another example of someone being “misunderstood.”
Our Father through His Trinity is what brought birth to this great nation. Her existence prospered and world wars won by faith in Jesus. Remove The Father from this nation and she falls, her blessings will cease.
WTF ! This is not right ! One of many steps this country has gone towards to getting rid of God’s protection which we need !
Veterans Not Allowed To Use God In Funerals At Houston VA Cemetery. Houston National Cemetery Director, Ms. Arlene Ocasio, was requiring grieving families and volunteer groups to not use the words God or Jesus at any funeral ceremony without her prior approval.
Halt all funding to Walter Reed Hospital.
how about the Koran?
A Houston, Texas, court system managed by an “out” lesbian judge has dismissed municipal tickets that had been written against two pastors who were preaching against sin, including homosexuality, on a prominent street corner.
The men were ticketed for having signs thicker than one-quarter inch (they say they were 3/16ths and that they’d been approved beforehand) and for having a sign not made out of wood.
Officers responded after someone apparently complained about the messengers and their message, but a video shows that the first officer on the scene told them they weren’t doing anything wrong.
It was a few minutes later, however, when officers approached the preachers, grabbed a video camera, wrestled them to the ground and put them in handcuffs.
That’s even though Stokes and Allan have been preaching at that location for several years.

” The lack of critical thinking skill in the class of people running things is as disturbing as the spiritual decay in evidence here.”
This is precisely what PC destroys, what it is INTENDED to destroy from day one. PC has been in effect softening the critical thinking of the bureacratic class for 40 some-odd years. A new broom in the whitehouse will change very little if anything at all.

That decision was rescinded.

You're so right, and it's not just the bureaucratic class. This lack of critical thinking runs rampant among teenagers--even young people in their twenties and thirties. They tend to believe that no one can know anything with certainty, that all opinions are equal, that all cultures are equal, etc. It's scary as hell. Minds like that can be talked into believing anything.
I understand what you are saying but the Senate bill now allows Sodomy and Bestiality due to no language disallowing it.
Please everyone calm down. The policy was meant to prevent people accosting patients they DIDN’T know and forcing their religious beliefs and material upon them. Would you want someone bothering you while you recovered from surgery, wanting you to take a Torah or Koran? No, of course not. And neither would people who follow those books appreciate overly aggressive Christian proselytizing in a similar situation. I think Christ would want us to treat our brothers as we would like to be treated. Just my opinion.
