A photograph of Marines with heads bowed in prayer during a ceremony honoring their Corps birthday aroused the ACLU to take up verbal arms.
“These are federal employees,” says ACLU spokesman Lucius Traveler, “on federal property and on federal time. For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately.”
What was wrong a photo of Marines praying? Except to those in the ACLU, absolutely nothing.
Asked what he thought about the ACLU charges, Colonel Jack Fessender, speaking for the Commandant of the Marine Corps said (cleaned up a bit), “Screw the ACLU.”
God bless our warriors who fight for Americans’ four freedoms… including religion!
This incident only shows how anti-American the ACLU has become in trying to remove God from everything and every place in America. Their ammunition is lawsuits and turmoil to intimidate.
Despite this minority opinion organization, may God continue to bless America – one nation under God!
“Lord, we beseech you to hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Give us the kind of strength and courage to match all of those who serve. Amen.”
If you agree with this message, send it along to those in your address book. And continue praying for our Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Coast Guard, and God’s guidance in our governmental affairs. Of all the gifts you could give any and all of them, prayer is the very best one. So please give it every day.
