VA hospital orders Christian symbols covered in chapel

While the Veterans Administration thanks its lucky stars the Bergdahl story has taken its scandal out of the headlines, it seems the VA system had other things to worry about anyway, beyond simply the death of dozens of veterans awaiting treatment.

No, what the VA really has to worry about is all those offensive Christian religious symbols in chapels.

As reported by Unhyphenated America, “A Veteran’s Hospital in Iron Mountain, Michigan actually went to the time and expense to install a curtain in front of an “offensive” altar, cross and statues of Jesus and Mary in the chapel.

According to a letter sent to Iron Mountain News, Chaplain Bob Mueller said “A couple of months ago, an order came down from Washington DC to cover all things associated with Christianity in the VA. Their solution is to cover everything in all the VA Chapels across the country.” Chaplain Bob went on to say, “A few weeks ago an official from the Madison VA came down here to tell me to ‘stop talking about Jesus, and to stop reading Scripture out loud.’”

It never ceases to amaze me what liberals seem to find offensive. For example, liberals find the concept of “school choice” troubling, but not the choice to kill your own child. Leslie Brown at Unhyphenated America has a more thorough (and amusing) list here.

Now, I know there are a bunch of folks who will jump all over the “separation of church and state” train, but how many times must I repeat it is not anywhere in the U.S. Constitution? We do not have an establishment of religion in America. We have the right to free exercise of religion – well, except in the eyes of the Obama administration.

Funny thing, I do recall a little thing called “separation of powers” as a fundamental principle of the United States, enshrined in our Constitution — but that doesn’t seem to matter to Obama and his progressive socialist acolytes.

And so the “fundamental transformation” of America continues. I’ve got an idea. Let’s hide the Christian symbols in the VA right next to the hidden lists denying our veterans proper care.
