Federal government bans flag-folding recitations following one complaint

From the American Family Association.

It is time for Christians to say enough is enough

“In the latest attack on Christianity, the U.S. government has banned the flag-folding recitations at all 125 national cemeteries. The banning came as the result of one complaint! The situation is similar to that in which one person removed prayer from schools.This article from The Associated Press explains the situation:

Complaints about religious content have led to a ban on flag-folding recitations by Veterans Administration employees and volunteers at all national cemeteries.

At thousands of military burials, VA volunteers have folded the American flag 13 times and recited the significance of each fold to survivors. The 11th fold glorifies “the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” The 12th glorifies “God the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost.”

Citing a need for uniformity, the National Cemetery Administration has prohibited unpaid VA volunteers as well as employees from conducting the recital at all 125 national cemeteries.

American Legion attorney Rees Lloyd calls it “another attempt by secularist fanatics to cleanse any reference to God.”

Following one complaint, the Veterans Administration has made anti-Christian bigotry the law of the land. The U.S. government has bowed to pressure from one radical anti-Christian secularist. Allowed to stand, the action by the Veterans Administration, in essence, means that anti-Christian bigotry is now the accepted and approved law of the land.”

    Please President Bush
    Recind the action to ban the flag folding recitation NOW. Let it be a choice by the loved one, not by a bunch of liberals who want to take this country down. Where is it going to stop?

  2. Kathleen McLane says:

    Let’s not be too fast with the Liberal bashing. This is one woman that considers herself a Liberal yet is outraged by this ban. I know very well when the day comes to lay my mother to rest near my father in a military grave. A grave that they both earned, standing their posts so that other’s could enjoy the Rights this country offers, that she will want a prayer said over her grave. And I for one will make dang sure she gets it if I have to say the words myself!
