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.”

“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 can’t bring in a Bible and read from it when you visit your son or your daughter, perhaps – or your wife or husband,” King said. “It means a priest that might be coming in to visit someone on their death bed couldn’t bring in the Eucharist, couldn’t offer Last Rites. This is the most outrageous affront.”

  1. HMM, no religious articles allowed in Walter Reed Hospital: does that include pictures of Obama?

  2. I wonder if the lame Stream media will cover this one. The fact that this speech was given on Thursday and the public is just finding out about it 4 days later speaks volumes. Our media is officially beholden to Obama. You think the media will cover their own demise when Obama asks for scripts before the network news his the air? Powder is dry folks!

  3. What a travesty. Brave men and women injured whilst serving their country, founded on principles of religious freedom, are prohibited the free practice of religious faith…? … in a military hospital…?

    What would Father Mulcahey have to say about all this…? :(

  4. The President of the United States should address this and should excoriate the people~~~~Not going to happen. More than likely, at some point at the end of the policy trail you’d find Obama. One of the many things he’s over 50% there in fundamentally changing America.

  5. More and more I grow ashamed of having served this Country when reading these types of stories. This POS Callahan and his superiors (for letting it happen) should be removed immediately.

  6. While we we DIVERTED

    The U.S. Senate voted Thursday to approve a defense authorization bill which included a provision that not only repealed the military ban on sodomy, but also repealed the ban on having sex with animals — or bestiality.

  7. Denying a soldier the comfort of their religion is

    denial of constitutional right. Serious stuff.

    Powder is dry

  8. but odumbo thinks it’s okay to bring them in korans…POS mooslime

  9. If the Christians don’t wake up soon and fight for their rights we will be prohibited from practicing our religion. Can you imagine the “stink” that would come from stopping a Koran from being brought into the hospital.

  10. What sort of demented and twisted soul would put a ban of this sort in place? This went way beyond a simple unwise decision. This was evil.

  11. Your government is doing all in its power to marginalize the Christian Faith.
    Better knock it off. God doesn’t like it…

  12. Think of this and every other headline just in the past 6 months alone that gave you pangs and you can’t deny that having a president with American cultural confidence would help if not downright change our destructive course. You can trust Rick SANTORUM with our cultural inheritance.

  13. The MSM would only be concerned if this involved the koran and Guantanamo.

  14. “The US Military says they are rescinding the order but only after a Republican lawmaker denounced the policy on the House floor.”

    Don’t cockroaches always scurry for the corner when you snap on the light?

  15. The Land of the Decree and the Home of the Slave.

  16. But remember, Barry is “well-meaning.”

  17. This went way beyond a simple unwise decision. This was evil.

    LIBERALS. ARE. EVIL. This is really not rocket science. Good and evil have been struggling on this planet for some time now.

  18. In my 25 years in the Air Force, I’ve never seen such anti-religious hysteria from senior leadership before. It’s one decree after another warning supervisors and commanders to never, ever mention God in the work place. I’m so glad I’m retiring soon.

  19. If oBama tries pulling this crap now, what’s going to happen if this POS is re-elected unfettered by the need to please anyone but, himself and George Soros.

  20. Political correctness run amok – a hallmark of a Democratic Administration. And now that December is here, we can watch this ramp up as The One strains not to say this verboten holiday word … http://www.ombudizen.com/2011/12/01/tis-the-season/
