I hope Senator Cornyn either gets the message or gets the boot next election.

Next election, when Dewhurst and Dan Patrick start coming around wooing the conservatives, remember the horrible way they campaigned against Cruz and the cheap shots they took trying to keep Cruz out of this position.

Even with the left throwing the kitchen sink against Cruz... it is nothing compared to what I heard on the Radio from “our” side.

Strengthen existing law to protect the rights of conscience of military service members and protect troops who express their religious faith appropriately so that they are not discriminated against or subject to retaliation.

'Appropriately' as defined by whom? Ia it the individual service heads? Then isn't what they've been doing that motivated this piece of legislation? Is it the local commanders? Can some base CO decide that displaying a crucifix or a nativity is an inappropriate expression of religious faith while others say it's OK? Is it the individual? What if Nidal Hassan claimed that shooting 45 people was an appropriate expression of his Muslim faith? Would that have been a defense in his court martial? I applaud the effort but there are too many loopholes in it. It needs to be tightened up some before being enacted.

Thank God for these 2 guys. I like how they both handle themselves. Not run to the camera to get out the first talking points spin like McCain does. I like their replies. Thoughtful and courageous. I pray they continue only to become better in standing up. It takes a strong person to withstand what is thrown at them in Washington, D.C. by the media and the special interests groups that do play with racial and hate games.

“Sens. Cruz, Lee Fight for Religious Freedom for Military Service Members”

I agree. And for everyone else as well.

NDAA? NDAA? There is already freedom of religion, under the UCMJ. Are you posters mentally incapable of free thought? What is right with you?
