Itís an Obama World/Walter Reed Hospit. Bars Family Members From Bringing Bibles to Injured Soldiers
Gateway Pundit ^ | December 5, 2011 | Jim Hoft

It’s 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.”

You’re probably right. And how to we get that !##%$ idiot fired? I know, no way to make that happen. Perhaps someone inside the command will be offended enough to quietly leak it. However, the commander is responsible for all that happens in his command, thus we need to focus on whomever commands Bethesda Naval/Walter Reed Medical Center.

You sound EXACTLY like the simpletons who sat home to punish George H.W. Bush for raising taxes when he had a half a million troops in the desert and had to compromise to to get the money to free Kuwait - as a result we got EIGHT YEARS of BILL CLINTON!

NO DAMN WAY! FOUR MORE YEARS OF HUSSEIN WILL MEAN NO MORE AMERICA - DO YOU UNDERSTAND? PINHEAD!

“Marxists only believe in the STATE and its supremacy.”

You’re absolutely right; the fanatically secular state libs pine for is the enemy of Christ & His Church.

yet again this crap we call the media WILL COVER FOR HIM AGAIN.

I am so pissed off that he gets away with gun running, tax money to donors through his green energy scam, Holder, Janet no clue, his vacation and yes his frigging wife who keeps popping up on channels even Disney and telling all of us to get healthy and she stuffs herself with fry ups, and is overweight on the rear end.

The media just sit there taking their frigging orders and maybe we need to occupy as the 99% the media HQ’s and yes that includes FOX
Kelly who loves her cross dressing homosexuals, Shep the fairy, Geraldo open borders, OR, big mouth , Hannity the fraud who has never talked about conservative social issues and said nothing when many of us vets tried to get him to speak up for us.

I’m sick of all of them and the pace where I get the news now is here and other sites to find out what really is going on with this admin.

Hell look at FOX. Beck goes, not great for all but he gave us info on ACORN when others did not, Tides, Soros etc and then they pout on the Five, the biggest joke of a show, Beckel, Perino,the guy who this he is funny and Tantaros who never stands up with conviction against her pal Beckel

What a joke all of the MSM are.

Koran OK Bible not, No church, but mosque is good, Christmas tree with pol pot, MO wanted the nativity scene gone last year, they piss off to HI so they can;t be seen not celebrating Christmas but he has no problem having muslims, CAIR at the white house and going to a mosque right away when overseas.

>> In no way was the instruction meant to prohibit family members from providing religious items to their love ones.

The Bible is NOT a religious item. It’s among the oldest documents known to man.

This is Commie censorship that has penetrated the walls of our Military!

No Bibles, but the koran would be welcomed in the name of diversity.

I got a freepmail or two in this connection recently. About not being allowed to BRING one's own Bible to a VA hospital. This is criminal, unconstituional, evil and so destructive that it definitely would call for civil disobedience (a Bible-sit in?) but thankfully one Repub had COURAGE and the fiends stood down!!! The lesson here is we (and by God our elected representatives) need to STAND UP and SHOUT and use their moral courage! If they have no moral courage, they are a huge part of the problem.

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.

I don't think we can fully realize how deeply entrenched the Hate-America/Hate-Christianity socialist-fascist bigots are in our current government or military bureacracy. Unfortunately this did not occur only on 0dumb0's current socialist regime, it was pervasive during pandering, capitulating dumb-ass GW Bush's presidency as well. In fact, I would say that political correctness and internal assults against America & Christianity became the pattern during GW Bush's presidency. Now under 0dumb0, it has escalated to an all out assult against Christianity & America. In fact it is now the norm for Christianity & America to be attacked, both within the U.S. military, as well as all levels & departments of the U.S. Federal gubmint. It is way past overdue that we need to Am Rev II or Civil War II in order to reclaim and take back our country. If that ever happens, I would suspect that 70-80% of the officers and perhaps 40-50% of the troops would fight for the socialist new world order. We may end up being out-manned as well as out-gunned. But who was it that said, better to die free than to live as a slave?

We have an entire sub-culture in America insisting that Article One, Bill of Rights, REQUIRES government to adopt and express a position of animosity to any expression of Christianity in public spaces, in particular in any space that can be construed as governmental in purpose. This is the essence of the non-existent (i.e., imaginary) doctrine of Separation of Church and State, which in its operational applications pertains only to Christianity.
