Legion leader: ‘There are 26 million veterans…they’re not going to take us all to prison’

Reaction to flag-folding recitation ban comes strong and swift 

The flag-folding recitation ban issued by the National Cemetery Administration to halt the ceremony in the state’s 125 national cemeteries has raised some strong reaction by U.S. war veterans and other groups.

This morning, I’m asking what is the proper response to yet another attempt to extract the mention of God in public?

I’ve come to the conclusion that this is about more than the separation of church and state. It’s about the desire to distance oneself from anything remotely associated with God. It is a spiritual battle between belief and non-belief within ourselves…individually and socially.

So what is the proper response to a threat to your belief in Jesus?

Perhaps the answer is to simply pray and act accordingly.

Here’s two actions right here:

American Legion
Charlie Waters, parliamentarian for the American Legion of California, said he’s advising memorial honor details to ignore the edict.

“This is nuts,” Waters told the Press-Enterprise by telephone from Fresno. “There are 26 million veterans in this country and they’re not going to take us all to prison.”

American Family Association
Sign the petition to President Bush asking him to rescind the action to ban the recitation now in use. It will immediately go to the White House.

Please forward this to your friends and family and urge them to sign the petition.
