I imagine it was a frantic scene. The Veteran Affairs staff was running around in a panic. In a fright over the possible presence of an illegal substance in their building. Much like the scene in Monsters Incorporated, where they think a kid has contaminated their living space.
This is a measure of the level of lunacy at which our country has arrived. That one Bible, placed in a government building, has caused such mayhem and disruption.
Todd Starnes reports:
A Bible was removed from the waiting room of a Chillico the Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Athens, Ohio after a veteran complained.
“Our government is secular, and must remain secular,” the unidentified veteran wrote.
Mikey Weinstein, the founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, fired off a letter to the medical center on behalf of the veteran – alleging that the presence of the Bible inside a government facility is a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
Weinstein, a fussy little man with a strong aversion to our Lord, said the Bible’s placement in the waiting room was “illicit and unconstitutional.”
In other words, “Good Housekeeping” is fine, but the Good Book is not.
The panicked VA staff scoured the entire building to ensure there were no other Bibles lurking about – waiting to spontaneously convert people. They found one.
So, did this veteran think that this Bible was going to do something? Was it going to cause him to lapse into a coma? Was he going to wake up the next day and decide to be a Christian because it was on a table where he had been?
No, this is just another example of the thought police. If you do not think like them, then you are infringing on their rights.
Thanks to the brave staff of the CVAMC, their facility is now Scripture free. But someone should tell these people that there is an easier way to avoid things they do not like. Do not pick them up.
