Skip to comments.Itís an Obama World/Walter Reed Hospit. Bars Family Members From Bringing Bibles to Injured Soldiers

Its an Obama world. While we were preoccupied with other disastrous Obama policies, military bureaucrats under Barack Obama passed a new rule that barred loved ones from bringing Bibles to wounded soldiers.
The US Military says they are rescinding the order but only after a Republican lawmaker denounced the policy on the House floor. Todd Starnes reported:
Walter Reed National Military Medical Center said they are rescinding a policy that prohibits family members of wounded military troops from bringing Bibles or any religious reading materials to their loved ones.
The decision to rescind the ban on Bibles came exactly one day after a Republican lawmaker denounced the policy on the House floor and called on President Obama to publicly renounce the military policy.
The President of the United States should address this and should excoriate the people who brought about this policy and the individual who brought it about should be dismissed from the United States Military, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told Fox News & Commentary.
King spoke from the House floor Thursday blasting a policy memorandum from the commander of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center written by Chief of Staff C.W. Callahan. The September 14th memo covers guidelines for wounded, ill, and injured partners in care.

With religious messages.

Just rip out a Koran and place the Bible inside it. It’ll be passed through with no problem.
Make no mistake! Obama and his sycophants are ANTI-RELIGIOUS to their core. Marxists only believe in the STATE and its supremacy.
Of course how else are they going to have a military full queers with the Bible making it more difficult?.. so it must be eliminated.
But what really surprises me is how meekly, cowardly the response of our "religious institutions" have been... beginning with my own (culturally). Are you telling me that all these religious institutions can not organize and present some opposition?...
What a bunch of wimps they are (with a few exceptions of course.)
PS - Walter Reed hospital is acting just like North Korea and Soviet Russia - next we’ll have people tying scripture to balloons to float over the walls there.
I thought they closed Walter Reed
Patterns of behavior reveal undeniable truths. Obama hates everything that made America great. You’ll hear from pundits long after this ordeal is over that zero “tried to do too much” in his first term. Ha! They tried to do too much at the Wellstone funeral, OWS, and in Wisconsin, too. Poor souls. F-em. May God give us enough grace as a nation to get past this horrible mistake.
Thanks for the address. oH, IT’S ON NOW1! I am sick of this stuff. He pushed the envelope too far and I hope he lives to regret it.
Send in some New Black Panther letters,a witchcraft book and a koran and things will be ok for this Marxists group running this country.
This is a direct violation of Freedom of Religion and there's no way in hell that usurping, kenyan, muslim, marxist, SOB 0bama, or any of his minions, has the right to do this!
FUBO GTFO! 412 Days until Noon Jan 20, 2013
They closed Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Bethesda has been renamed Walter Reed National Medical Center.
Do it anyway and keep doing it.
Give the “Obama Salute” to anyone who objects.
Take names and ADDRESSES of anyone who objects.
Then do something about it.
Camp out in their front lawns. Take smelly Obamas on their cars.
It’s time to play liberal...because the constitution no longer appears to matter.
Thank you for your interest in the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. We apologize for any confusion that resulted from our policy. In no way was the instruction meant to prohibit family members from providing religious items to their love ones. The intent of the instruction was to respect the religious and cultural practices of all of our patients. We are drafting a new instruction that will clearly articulate our respect for religious and cultural practices of all of our patients and families.< eyesrolling>
Again, we regret any confusion that this might have caused and we thank you for your support of our Warriors and their families.
On behalf of the Command...
They did, several months ago. Scratching my head a bit...
This jackass needs to be immediately cashiered out of the Army, and, if he is also a physician, out of the practice of medicine as well. There is NO excuse for this kind of policy on the part of ANYONE in authority in this country.
Pray folks they can't make you stop and don't let these bastards intermediate you..I know God is with me and he will be with me forever unless I follow these disgusting Muslims or Communist..I will not denounce Christ,they can kill me but I will never say there is no God..and will as long as I am able study the Bible..
In accordance with the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure recommendations, an Office of Integration (OI) was formed in November 2005 to oversee the merger of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) and the National Naval Medical Center (NNMC). That merged facility will be staffed by Army, Navy, and Air Force medical personnel and will be the core of an integrated military medicine system in the National Capital Region (NCR). What in 2005 were three medical centers, a small community hospital, and 19 clinics offering medical care to military beneficiaries in the NCR will become, with oversight of the OI, a single tri-service medical center, a large tri-service hospital in Northern Virginia, and 20 area clinics
Groundbreaking took place on July 3, 2008 with President George W. Bush officiating.
muslims are worried a muslim might actually get offered or given or otherwise exposed to a Bible (gasp)- oh the humanity
Someone needs to send Bibles by balloon into Saudi Arabia- it's just as big a gulag as North Korea
Blame the bastards that put him in thw White House. He[obama] is the smae muslim communist sob that he has always been. This, what is happening to our Country, is what the sobs that voted for him wanted to happen. And the way things look now, they aren’t going to get any better.
