A FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT!
by Capt. Joseph R. John (Ret.), Chairman, CombatVeteransForCongress.org
(Aug. 12, 2014) — Unfortunately, Obama used his civilian appointees to prevent Chaplains from reading letters from their Cardinals from the pulpit to their parishioners in violation of “Freedom of Speech” and “Freedom of Religion.”
Then Obama used his civilian appointees to have Military Chaplains make their Chapels available for same-sex marriage ceremonies in violation of the Chaplain’s deepest held religious beliefs.
Then Obama used his civilian appointees to restrict Chaplains from distributing Bibles in military hospitals to wounded warriors, in violation of “Freedom of Religion.”
Then Obama had his civilian appointees order base commanders to provide US Armed Forces Color Guards in Full Dress, to march in gay pride parades in violation of US Military Regulations which prevent members of the US Armed Forces in uniform from participating in political events.
In the below listed article, Obama used an atheist’s complaint as an excuse to have his civilian appointees make the Navy remove Bibles from all Naval Base hotels in violation of “Freedom of Religion.”
The leadership of the Republican-led Congress has done absolutely “nothing” to oppose Obama’s repeated and flagrant violation of the “Freedom of Religion” and “Freedom of Speech” guaranteed to all American citizens by the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
We encourage you to help elect the 35 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress running for election in 2014 who will fight to restore “Religious Freedom” to members of the US Armed Forces.
