In that time I have had myriad folks e-mail and tell me that I posted bogus information, that it was just Christian paranoia, and that I was lying to simply stir up trouble.
Today the mainstream media finally reports that Veterans Cemeteries Ban Flag-Folding Ceremony
A single complaint lodged against the words for the 11th fold recently prompted the National Cemetery Administration to ban the entire recital at all 125 national cemeteries.
A spokesman in Washington said the complaint originated from someone who witnessed the ceremony at Riverside National but would provide no other details and declined to release the directive banning the flag-folding recital, saying it was “an internal working document not meant for public distribution.”
Veterans are furious.
“That the actions of one disgruntled, whining, narcissistic and intolerant individual is preventing veterans from getting the honors they deserve is truly an outrage,” said Rees Lloyd, 59, a Vietnam-era veteran and Memorial Honor Detail volunteer. “This is another attempt by secularist fanatics to cleanse any reference to God.”
I think the descriptive words here are these: it was “an internal working document not meant for public distribution.”
In other words, they wanted it to be kept silent, hoping Christian Vets like Rees Lloyd will just roll on over like Christians usually do, and follow “the law” – even when it quashes our right of free exercize and faith.
Thank God for men like him, who stand up and fight for what we are losing every single day in this country.
We need to ALL stand up and join that fight.
We need to do so now.
Get involved. Join orgs like ROH, the American Legion, and fight to preserve what our vets fought and bled to preserve.
