Walter Reed Medical Center under attack by the Jug-Eared Marxist and his minions.
The soldiers who wake up in Walter Reed Medical Center are in Maryland --not communist China . But under the Navy's new rules, they may not know the difference! After months of peeling away the military's core values, Obama's army is on the move. And this time, it has a high-value target: the Bible. In a memo obtained by FRC, Navy officials have announced that "no religious items (including Bibles, reading material, and/or artifacts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit." The new orders are buried in a four-page document about patient care, which an Army officer forwarded to us in disbelief. Effective immediately, families, friends, and even pastors will have to check their beliefs at the door to visit one of the largest military hospitals in the United States . Last night, after we circulated the memo to leaders on the Hill, an outraged Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) took to the House floor and blasted the policy. "Mr. Speaker, these military men and women who are recovering at Walter Reed and Bethesda have given their all for America ... They've defended and taken an oath to the Constitution, and here they are. The people that come to visit them can't bring a religious artifact? They can't bring a Bible? ...A priest can't walk in with the Eucharist and offer communion to a patient who might be on their deathbed because it's prohibited in this memo from the Department of the Navy?"
This is Obama's military, where homosexuality is celebrated and Christianity is censored; where witches are financed and crosses are scorned; where bestiality is embraced and Bibles are banned; where same-sex "weddings" are encouraged but international charity is not. After three years of ideological warfare, the administration's intent is clear: to disarm the military of its biggest weapon. Faith. Regardless of President Obama's agenda, there is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that empowers the government to stop family members from giving Bibles or crosses to their loved ones. And from a PR standpoint, I'm not sure the best way to boost approval ratings is by denying comfort to wounded warriors. Unfortunately for our troops, who have endured so much turmoil under the Obama administration, this is another blow. Hopefully, with the help of Congressman King and others, it's only a temporary one.
America is losing everyday with this president. I for one do not believe America can survive these onslaughts from the Obama's administration. I challenge all who read this to vote Obama out before it's too late. How much more proof do you need????

Actually, believe it or not, there is a kernel of truth here.
Obama had nothing to do with it but there were misinterpreted guidelines intended to protect soldiers from unsolicited proselytizing but the memo was so poorly worded it excluded all religious material.

Sometimes, when I'm at peace with the world, I have dreams where conservatives do their research before they speak. I wish life was more like those dreams.

Here's what they always fail to report on on like edicts. CHOICE. They aren't ever restricted and the questions always asked if you want religious service.
It happens in Canadian hospitals. Do you want religious visitations? Sadly, even if you say no, you'll see these idiot priests, because they're always looking for that dying soul to add to heaven (church coffers)
Yeah, I've seen it, came near to kicking preist ass a couple times as they cheerfully ignore NO RELIGIOUS REQUESTS.

So there I was, thinking that the US military's greatest weapon was its nuclear arsenal, or perhaps its massive carrier fleets, or its tactical bombers, or its Predator drones. Thank you, Timberwolf, for showing me the truth. Clearly it is Faith that allows our troops to... um...
Get killed a lot, by the looks of it. Unintentional truth award?

No, the US armed forces' biggest weapon is far and away nuclear missiles. Seriously.

No Timberwolf, the US Navy's biggest weapon is surprise! Surprise and fear. Fear and surprise. Its two biggest weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency. Its *three* biggest weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to Obama. Its *four*...no...*Amongst* its biggest weapons...amongst its biggest weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise...
I'll come in again.

In order to believe Obama is a Marxist
you'd have to have a serious screw loose. Then again this imbecile posts on WLD...
EDIT: Actually Timberwolf is an administrator. Apparently you need to be at least that stupid to qualify.
